I am an active member of the Free TON Africa Sub Governance, Free TON Academy Sub Governance, and the global Free TON community, signed the Declaration of Decentralization, and participates in organizing key events, such as the recently ended Africa Blockchain Week Virtual Summit 2021 in Morocco. Also, I have been conducting Beginners classes for the new Free TON users in the Africa Sub Governance to ensure they understand the functionality of the SG and Free TON blockchain at large.

Therefore, with my accomplishments and experience in offering education and the desire to educate the Africa populace about blockchain and cryptocurrency, I can offer the very best as an Education Moderator/Ambassador in the Free TON Africa Sub Governance, together with like-minded individuals, to meet and exceed the set goals/objective/aims and the proposed KPIs.

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.

My experience has been some aggregate of what I have been passionate about which is in the area of education as a teacher. This has made me more enthusiastic about leadership roles and responsibilities and in the area of learning. I have served as the general secretary of the Society of Electrical/Electronics Engineering Students (SEES) during my undergraduate studies, and as a current ambassador of International Youth Mathematics Competition (IYMC) and many others.

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

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:

Congratulations to the winners.



One of the major hindrances to acceptability of Blockchain Technology in most African countries is actually the lack of sufficient information to ‘drive home’ its importance to the continent. The reason as to why fewer countries in Africa have embraced the technology as a whole.

Great initiative. This will help build content relevant to the Academy for the African Students and exploratory minds in general.

There’s nothing less than great here. We now have a structure that will help in production of relevant content for the African community.

I totally agree. We need more awareness and engagement in the Africa continent. This is one step to reaching our goal

I love this, having a structure that handles this is awesome.

A very timely initiative that will address the existing Gap. It will go a long way in harnessing the immense resources inherent across the African continent.

This is a good one because it will ensure the spread of quality information to Africans.
