Senegalese-America award winning artist Akon through his cryptocurrency Akoin has partnered with BitMinutes to bring banking to the unbanked spread across various economies of the world. 

The partnership comes after the official launch of the Akoin cryptocurrency. Akon’s joining hands with prepaid airtime token, BitMinutes, is to help bring to life his banking the unbanked vision.

In Africa and across the world, millions of people are currently without access to the banking system and this presents a huge opportunity for newer and revolutionary financial products aimed at solving the myriads of challenges. 

For regions such as Kenya, mobile money has evolved to be a significant market and still growing tremendously across nations owing to limited access to financial products. 

The partnership with both organizations according to COO of Akoin, Lynn Liss, will see to tackling the challenges and enable users to transact using financial models they are familiar with. 

She went further saying,  “Our relationship with BitMinutes provides the cornerstone for how we achieve our shared vision for bringing financial inclusion to rising economies such as Africa; starting with prepaid minutes as a medium of exchange was a clear pathway for us given the store of value people in Africa already recognize there, and is the first step in bringing more users into our blockchain-based economy we’re developing at Akoin.”

The BitMinutes application is according to Tom Meredith, the CEO of BitMinutes, is not only practical, but intuitive for these regions… Leveraging this growing store of value already found in prepaid minutes, BitMinutes expanded services also include micro-lending where prepaid minutes serve as collateral. Trusted Area Network (TAN) agents are highly vetted and become BitMinutes micro-lending agents, in addition to providing cash in and cash out services to those using the platform.”

Akoin holders will be able to swap a portion of their akoins to BitMinutes to enjoy all the features that the new dapp to be launched soon on the Stellar-powered blockchain has to offer. 

BitMinutes will offer Akoin holders free money transfers to 1.2 billion accounts across Africa and free mobile top-up for four billion mobile phones. The firm will also provide access to prepaid airtime capabilities and micro-lending and “cash in/out services.” – Lynn Liss.

COVID-19: Chiji14xchange Injects N2 Million Staff Intervention Fund as it Initiates Remote Work For its Staff



Chiji14xchange will create a N2 Million Staff Intervention Fund to support staff as its staff will begin working remotely. 

The announcement of its plan to initiate remote work for the staff of the company comes into effect as from Monday, March 22, 2020, till further notice. This announcement was made on Friday, 20th March 2020. The is following the confirmation of an increase in Nigeria’s COVID-19 cases,

Chiji14xchange is a digital asset trading company, all transactions are done on the firm’s online platform as it deals with its clients remotely via the same medium. But not all engagements require online presence and can be done remotely.

There exist some jobs that require human to human interaction and as such, these sets of staff reports directly to the office of the firm. 

The firm has assessed it’s entire workforce and identified key personnel that are of utmost importance to the smooth running of the organization in this trying times. An overview of the assessment showed that members of the tech team and a few customer service agents would be able to effectively operate remotely while other customer service agents would be required to be physically present.

To this end, the management of the firm has made provisions for these essential members of the firm to move into the company’s headquarters as adequate accommodation has been provided for them. 

Staff of Chiji14xchange

The practice of social distancing is imperative at this time and as such, this move is to encourage the practice of social distancing and isolation as is necessary to prevent the looming outbreak of the Pandemic in Nigeria – COVID-19.

In addition to this, the management approved a N2million staff intervention fund to support staff welfare during the period. “This is to support every staff of the company in the isolation process (as regarding stocking up food and toiletries) as finance could be a hindrance to effective isolation practice,” CEO Odum Chijioke said.

This is obviously a judicious move, one that is being adopted by many other organizations globally probably excluding manufacturers of essential commodities and other businesses whose continuity depends on physical contact with customers.

But with a possible nationwide outbreak in sight, drastic decisions have to be made early enough.

Staff of Chiji14xchange

Generally, activation of full remote work (for all employees) could be hindered by reasonable challenges such as concerns with the reliability of personal internet compared to more reliable setups in an office environment.

An even greater concern is the availability of power considering the occasional collapse of the national electricity grid in the past.

Nobody’s certain what the next few months will look like, but as far as businesses are concerned, plans have to be put in place to sustain continuity. Would this system really help in preventing an outbreak? 

Would this result in wide acceptance of Remote Working in the nearest future? Whatever the case may be for businesses, working remotely should be seen as a necessity.

As we have hope in the tackling, containment and eventual elimination of the Coronavirus, we are confident that the quality of our service will not be affected in these trying times. 

We wish and pray the best for all our staff, customers and the entire world population.
