Afropolitan, the first-ever digital nation empowering Africans to build abundant lives, has partnered with the NEAR Foundation , the non-profit that oversees the development of the ecosystem built around NEAR Protocol, to enable citizens to control their assets, data, and the power of governance.
Through this partnership, the NEAR community and Afropolitans will collaborate on several fronts.
Afropolitan Founders will have access to:
- Educational information to make good decisions about hiring, incorporation, compensation and technical development in web3, along with an informed and highly engaged pool of talent in the form of the NEAR community, for all the roles they need to hire.
- NEAR ecosystem contributors and investor introductions to help take their products to market as they build on NEAR.
Afropolitan Creatives will enjoy the support and network of thousands of creators from around the world. Afropolitan Developers will have access to
- Basic explanations, working examples, and documentation required to build on NEAR.
- An array of technological primitives and projects to ensure that their journey from an idea to launch is rapid, iterative, painless, and supported by an active and inclusive community.
Commenting on the partnership, Eche Emole, co-founder of Afropolitan, said: “Afropolitan’s partnership with NEAR will allow us to have the best network level clarity and accelerate the decentralized network state vision. This partnership will help us build the infrastructure to enable community participation in large-scale decisions that affect the community, for example, resource allocations or technical governance, in an inclusive and completely decentralized way.”
Marieke Flament, CEO of the NEAR Foundation, said: “This is a significant partnership for NEAR as it aligns with our key mission to empower local communities around the world to build their digital economies and shape their own future with the power of Web3. We are impressed by what Afropolitan stands for and believe that NEAR can help it reach its objectives to build a far-reaching business network that is both inclusive, sustainable and transparent.”
