Africa SG & Free Ton Academy Proposal

I like this. However, are you considering the average African who may have little to no knowledge on blockchain and may want to learn?

This is exactly what the proposal intends to do. Apart from the many educational podcasts we do at the African SG, this is an upgrade to those who want to do an indepth research and add to their knowledge in an online class room setting being offer by the Free Ton Academy. Thanks.


Thanks Mr John, there are also many other activities, that are slowly “weaning” the everyday African (let me not use average) into blockchain technology. For example contests and even the E-sports tournaments. One of the points talked about in the proposal was “localization of training curricula and level of language to be used” so as to cater for all.


Full support! Africa is the next big thing! :raised_hands:


Great idea. This will foster growth in the African Fintech Ecosystem




In reference to our published proposal, the Education initiative in identification and appointment of the steering team is hereby published.

Interested parties are invited to submit their application so as to carry out the mandate stipulated below under ‘ Proposed Procedures ’. The successful candidates shall also implement the KPI’s as indicated in the Proposed KPI’s section of this document.

Contest Duration:

12-07-2021 to 22-07-2021.

Voting Period

23-07-2021 to 30-07-2021


To facilitate the provision of relevant blockchain education to the African populace, with emphasis on topics that will unlock the continent’s potential and awareness, especially of blockchain solutions to everyday situations.


  • Help in provision of an informative avenue to the African populace, enable authors to disseminate their expertise and generally popularize the Free TON network within the continent of Africa.
  • Help in the understanding and advancement of the crypto environment by fronting fertile discussions on alternatives available to the unbanked in Africa, especially so in contexts revolving around Africa’s economic problems. For example, fiat currencies and volatility, business capital controls, interest rates in relations to cost of loans and financial transactions, cross-border financial restrictions and remittances, among many others, in relation to cryptocurrency use and adoption in the continent.
  • Help in weaning the African populace on decentralized concepts of operation and funding, and outlining the individual and community’s benefits for overall growth.
  • Help in the dissemination, understanding, and strengthening of regulations related to cryptocurrency use in Africa and also equip the everyday African with basic capabilities of detecting fraudulent crypto schemes and further assisting in the prevention of such fraud, hence strengthening and growing crypto confidence and use in Africa.
  • Help in fostering the efforts of all those involved in creating the fairly new or previously non-existence syllabus of ‘Blockchain Education’ in Africa, with the potential of disseminating useful future-oriented knowledge, capable of eliminating a lot of negative vices associated with the youth in Africa e.g. unemployment, drug abuse, early marriages, etc., and turning the African youth into positive thinkers and effective problems solvers of challenges bedeviling the continent of Africa.

Free TON Africa SG Multisig Address:

This is a worthy initiative whose successful completion will unlock the Blockchain potential waiting to be unleashed in the African continent!

Fully support. There is a huge market in need of the new way of education, apart from the traditional. Education that is moving with the times.

Really a necessity to the continent right now. Timely!!

Blockchain education is more than necessary in Africa. It is a go for me. No reservations.

Being in the Blockchain space, I often get the question: Is it a scam? I love how revolutionary Free TON Network is and I would be happy to share with the masses who have been scammed or are skeptical about Blockchains and or cryptocurrencies on how to benefit and leverage the blockchain. The best part is anyone and everyone can benefit from the network as there are projects that are pioneered to have use cases for everyone. I constantly and consistently share with my network how all this is possible, through programs I have had before with the support of Free TON Africa SG and SMM e.g. Apex Legends Tournaments, Podcasts and peer to peer sharing in social media platforms as well as holding physical sessions with individuals who are not very conversant with technology. When chosen, I will simply amplify the effect and share the information as far as my network goes with relevant tools, mostly leveraging on the Free TON Academy resources.

As as ardent lover of Decentralization and the Blockchain technology itself, I was able to be part of the first 200 people to participate in the launch of Free TON Blockchain, I signed the Declaration Of Decentralization and partook in some of the contests held on and off the Free TON Forum. I have been in the Crypto space for the past 5 years, experience they said have been the nicest teacher. In my own little way of promoting Free TON amongst my peers I have done so. I believe Free TON is still very much at the early stages of development. By this its needs to be exposed to the African growing population through the teaching of important technology which will take it to a desired stage.
I have a vast knowledge of the Free TON community, technology, the needed audience to broadcast information of Blockchain and my experience so far has been the helping factor in my way to joining the Free TON community. I have launched a medium of communication through my community of social media platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn and many more social media platforms an the goal to meet up with the already proposed Education KPI in the African SUG, This is my goal of partaking in this Contest.

An overview of the economic aspects of the Free TON ecosystemобзор-экономических-аспектов-экосис/|6 hours|Russian

Overchuk Oleksandr Petrovych (far left in the second row) in the operation hall at National Bank of Ukraine past conferension with Ukrainian business respondents (in the center “bald” - Tomash Fiala, investment banker, CEO Dragon Capital - the investment partner, among others, is the American financier, stock market investor George Soros. 25.10.2019, Kyiv, Ukraine.

Overchuk Oleksandr Petrovych, born on February 20, 1980 in Kyiv, Ukrainian citizen, education higher. I have no insiders among the initiative jury members of the FT Academy community. I am fluent in Russian and Ukrainian, as well as English with the help of a dictionary.

I am interested in modern blockchain technologies. The main goal of my research is to study the options of the Free TON ecosystem from an economic point of view. In October 2020, I joined the Free TON Wiki team and immediately started translating Wiki publications from Russian, which I had mastered since childhood, into my native Ukrainian language. When translating texts, Wiki studied in detail the materials on the Free TON blockchain. You can find a detailed list of redeemed articles on the website (my username is Medco)

Currently, I am actively exploring the possibilities of introducing Free TON blockchain technologies into modern fintech services (banking, insurance, corporate voting, accounting for ownership of tokenized assets and their circulation, HR, etc.), about which I am preparing relevant publications. One of them has already been published in Russian on the advantages of voting procedures in the blockchainПреимущества_процедур_голосования_с_помощью_Free_TON

In early 2021, I became a member of the Free TON Wiki jury to assess the quality of new materials for the blockchain encyclopedia.

Since my student days (late 20th century), I began to explore alternative ways of calculating. The most common instrument for non-cash non-cash settlements in those years were paper bills (simple and transferable). While studying at the institute, he first prepared a thematic report on bills of exchange, which he made at an institute seminar on the subject “Money and Credit”. Further, this essay was transformed into a bachelor’s term paper. And the course work served as the basis for the successful defense of the master’s thesis on the topic: “Bill of exchange form of payments and its impact on the activities of enterprises in Ukraine” (2004).

The acquired academic knowledge helped me a lot in working in different banks in servicing clients in the field of securities and documentary operations (2004-2009).

However, when working with small farms and private farmers (2008-2018), I noticed a great inconvenience when paying with them for agricultural products (they prefer to pay in cash), since it was not always possible to quickly settle by bank transfer. This circumstance prompted me to study more deeply the possibilities of the blockchain.

In modern conditions, with the active development of the Free TON blockchain project, there is a huge potential for studying this technological platform in the context of its application in various spheres of international socio-economic relations.

Taking into account the graphic symbol of the Free TON community in the form of a crystal in the form of a symmetrical cut, symbolizing the value of this project, like the gem of a large diamond stored in the treasury of a diamond mining company, I want to emphasize the great opportunities for promising research and training within the Free TON Academy on various topics and directions of our multifaceted “crystal”.

At the initial stage of the Free TON Academy’s activities, I consider the following topics to be appropriate areas for research and training:

  • technological foundations of the Free TON ecosystem;
  • promising areas of application of the Free TON blockchain options;
  • the history of quasi-money as the predecessors of tokens issued on the blockchain for a deeper understanding of the economic essence of settlement instruments;
  • prospects for the creation of financial structures (communities) that could provide financial and banking services based on the Free TON (DeFi) blockchain;
  • legal adaptation of technological solutions (options) developed on the basis of the Free TON blockchain for widespread use in different countries.

The basic digital coin TON Crystal of the Free TON (FT) ecosystem has the basic properties that are necessary for its circulation as a settlement instrument. As of summer 2021, FT Crystals are listed on about 10 trading platforms (crypto exchanges and crypto exchanges). Their liquidity (the ability to quickly buy and sell) gives them the properties of a cash equivalent. However, there is a major factor negatively affecting FT tokens - significant volatility (variability) in their value. The FT project is at an early stage of development and the ecosystem tokens are not completely distributed among the participants taking part in the development of this blockchain platform, and this does not make it possible to objectively assess the cost value of the entire FT ecosystem in terms of technological value (by analogy with classic IT companies ).

Significant exchange rate volatility is inherent in all cryptocurrencies. Under the condition of a simple payment for goods, work performed or services provided with TON Crystal tokens, a conflict of interest arises between the buyer and the seller (with a further decrease in the rate, the buyer wins, the seller - a loss, with an increase in the rate: the seller gains, and the buyer overpays).

There are many options for leveling the volatility of TON Crystal tokens and their detailed consideration is planned in stages as part of the course: “Researching the possibilities for carrying out calculations in the Free TON ecosystem”.

At the next stage, you can consider the possibility of the formation of faculties, for example, information technology (IT), economics and law. Where students could comprehend the wisdom of the blockchain in more depth, depending on their priorities, looking at our “crystal” in 3D :slight_smile:
