Hong Kong -- 3rd November, 2020: Afreum is pleased to announce the launch of a new DeFi app ecosystem aimed at driving blockchain adoption across Africa. Built on top of the Stellar blockchain, Afreum combines some of the key concepts of DeFi, such as staking, liquidity pools, and yield farming, while facilitating transfers, payments, remittances, savings, loans, and more, on the continent. The Afreum Ecosystem is powered by multiple tokens, including AFREUM (AFR), the main token used for international transactions, AFREUM X (AFRX), the incentives and governance token, and country-specific utility tokens, or stablecoins, to facilitate everyday transactions in different countries.

"Afreum is a unique and ambitious project aimed at leveraging the benefits of blockchain to bring about financial inclusion across the African continent. With the AFR and AFRX tokens, local stablecoins, and the upcoming suite of custom-built DeFi applications, Afreum aims to satisfy the everyday transaction needs of African populations, while meeting the DeFi expectations of the crypto community at large. The aim is that AFR becomes a viable conduit for transactions with and between African countries, and a reliable store of value for sophisticated actors," said Sahr Johnny, founder of Afreum.

Afreum will act as a payments layer on top of the Stellar platform, with custom apps giving Africans seamless access to fast transactions, low fees, and easy on-boarding through fiat anchors, and the upcoming Afreum P2P Exchange. The Afreum Ecosystem differs from other payment systems in that it allows international actors to play a central role by staking AFR tokens to earn a share of transaction fees, plus free AFRX governance tokens. Through staking, AFR holders provide liquidity to the Afreum Ecosystem essentially making an informed bet on blockchain adoption and usage across Africa.

To facilitate local acceptance and adoption, utility tokens or stablecoins, will be launched for each African country, allowing users to transact digitally in their local currency. Afreum will also develop an SMS-based custodial wallet to drive adoption with unbanked populations, and subsidize some of the the transaction costs. Users will be able send, receive, pay, and manage their accounts either through SMS messages, or with the help of trusted intermediaries. Other applications in the Afreum Ecosystem include Afreum Savings & Loans (ASL), Afreum Global Remittances (AGR), Afreum Liquidity Engine (ALE), Afreum Game Engine (AGE), Afreum P2P Exchange (APE), Afreum Credit Engine (ACE), Afreum Merchant Program (AMP), and much more. For more details, please view the Afreum whitepaper located at https://afreum.com/Afreum_Whitepaper.pdf"

The AFR token is designed for international crypto users who are already familiar with the concepts of liquidity pools, staking, and liquidity mining, but would like to extend these to new markets, tapping into new value chains. By staking AFR, users are able to put their money to work, and benefit from economic activity across Africa, without taking on any of the associated risks. Users on the ground can conduct daily transactions in local utility tokens, while being able to switch into AFR at any time to hedge against currency fluctuations and inflation, or participate in DeFi on an equal footing with their Western counterparts. It’s a win-win for both sides, and incentives do not need to be aligned," said Sahr Johnny.

Prior to launch in a few months, Afreum is holding a private sale of 4% of the total supply of AFREUM (AFR) tokens from 1st November, 2020 to 30th November, 2020. This will be followed by an airdrop of AFRX tokens, delivered proportionally to all AFR token holders from the private sale. At launch, all tokens in the Afreum ecosystem will be freely tradable on Stellar’s decentralized exchange, and within the Afreum Wallet. Visit https://afreum.com to find out more.

So this token was built on Stellar Blockchain for the benefits of Africa. The intention is truly amazing and you may get lots of supporters/investors with this but of course proofs are necessary. This post looks like an article to me by the way. I suggest you should create Medium account and post something like this there. This kind of post might attract more interested audience. I wish you good luck!

First of all, I'll assume and act like this is your official ANN, so I'll give my questions on this thread and not the other two that you also have.

With that being said, what I wanted to know first is, were this article-like post really coming from an article, or was it just your... rather strange... style to attract people's interest? If it's the former, where is the source of the article, if it's the later... simply why? I can't even put myself to read all of them.
