What’s Proof of Africa?

PoA is a stakepool which represents Africa in the Cardano ecosystem. You can think of it as a stakepool-based adoption driver based in Africa. We want to contribute to the bootstrap of Cardano in Africa. As a beginning, we are currently organizing events to educate people about Cardano in Nigeria. Besides, we have created several guides which have been used by hundreds of Cardano community members to create their stakepools, and experiment on the ITN.

We have already hosted several events in the past. And it's just the beginning.

Our stakepool is...

Secure

No need to panic, your staking rewards are safe with us. Our infrastructure is based in the cloud, protected with firewalls. The data centers we are using are protected 24/7 and we plan to run several relay nodes to further secure our stakepool.

Uptime-driven

We have chosen to have our stakepool in the cloud for security reasons, as we want your money to be safe, but also to make sure our pool is always up, in order for you to gain more staking rewards. Besides, we are using a tool called JorManager, which ensures the uptime of our stakepool, no matter what happens.

Reasonably priced

Our fee is just 10% of your staking rewards. We think that’s a fair price for an enterprise-grade infrastructure powering our stakepool, and our activities in Africa which are incredibly expensive to organize for a small stakepool like us.

Why Proof of Africa?
Because we are...

Organizing events

We have been organizing several events in the past, including meet-ups and hackathons. Thanks to that, we have the necessary experience to start organizing more and more events. After the Goguen release, we plan to progressively start hosting hackathons in Nigeria.

Educating

Our current focus is on education, through our events in Nigeria, but we are also creating plenty of guides, to allow the Cardano community to experiment with stakepools, nodes,...

Investing

In the future, we plan to start giving grants away to local developers, to allow them to fund the early-stage development of their Cardano-based dApps and services. On a long-term perspective, we may even start investing in local startups active in the Cardano ecosystem.

A few numbers about Africa...

1.3 billion people

In 1998, Africa’s population was estimated around 760 million people, which means that in a bit more than 20 years, the population nearly doubled. By 2100, it’s estimated that the African continent will represent nearly 40% of the world population, or 4.3 billion people.

+-60y of life expectancy

In the 1950s, the average life expectancy was 37.46 years, in 2015, the average life expectancy reached 60.23 year, which is still a ridiculously low number compared to the +-80 years European life expectancy.

2.5%+ of yearly growth

Sub-Saharan Africa’s is the home to the world’s largest free-trade area and a 1.2 billion-person market, the continent is poised to create an entirely new development path harnessing the potential of its resources and people.

+-18 years of median age

15% of the African population is under 15 years old, and only 3% is over 65 years old. This is a huge difference with North America for example, which has « only » 19% of its population under 15 years old 15% over 65 years (5 times Africa).
