AFRICUNIA is registered in the United Kingdom as AFRICUNIA LIMITED, providing
Global Banking and Financial Services. The “CUNIA” in “AFRICUNIA’ comes from
the Latin word “PERCUNIA” meaning “money” or “cash.” whereas “AFRI” is the
abbreviated version of AFRICA. Therefore translated - AFRICUNIA means African
Money or African Cash.
AFCASH is the digital coin (CryptoCurrency) that will be created by AFRICUNIA
BANK. It is essential to point out that AFCASH would not just be a CryptoCurrency,
rather it will create an Ecosystem that will help bridge the gap between the fiat and
the crypto universes and enable users globally.
Our main business is Fiat Currency and Cryptocurrency Bank Operations. We are
introducing an innovative banking model that allows the use of fiat and digital
currency without hurdles, risks and technical barriers linked with owning,
transferring, and trading in cryptocurrencies and tokens.
Our team is made up of talented, inspiring, and diligent individuals from around the
globe. Together, we share the passion for coding, creating, and ultimately building
an open, accessible and fair futuristic financial future, one piece of time. Our
leadership players have a proven track record in the fields of financial technology,
cryptocurrencies, venture capital, entrepreneurship, product development, asset
management, and legal structuring. Go to our website: www.africunia.org for
comprehensive profiles of the individuals behind AFRICUNIA Bank project.
Our Bank project is estimated to take off sometime around March/April 2018 after
the completion and testing of our Blockchain Technology and Bank Infrastructure.
ICO (Initial Coin Offering) is a model of crowdfunding that allows us to issue Digital
Shares (Tokens) in exchange for investments. Each Token will entitle its holder to a
share of AFRICUNIA Bank’s annual profit distributed proportionately among all

The initial price of 1 AFCASH is fixed at 1.00 USD during the Pre-ICO and ICO.

Prospectus where we have analyzed the perspectives of our approach in
comparison to several major banks. This will help you understand the vision of our
operations, while the actual profitability of the business will depend on the number
and types of services we will have at our disposal as a result of the ICO.
At the end of a financial year 20％ of distributable profit of AFRICUNIA Payment
Institution or AFRICUNIA Bank is transferred to the Ethereum wallet containing the
Smart Contract from where it is then redistributed proportionately to all holders of
AFCASH tokens according to smart contract conditions. In order to receive the
dividends, AFCASH has to be stored on the wallet, such as the wallet available in
the dashboard on the Africunia.org website, MyEtherWallet, Mist, etc.

As we are building the first AFRICAN Crowdfunded Bank, the classical IPO model
will not fit into our plans. There are specific requirements for investors who
participate in IPOs which means that many of our supporters will never have a
chance to participate.
Yes, we do. Please send your proposal to email@example.com and we will make sure
to reach out to you by the end of the ICO if there is an opportunity for cooperation.
We believe that cooperation with cryptocurrency and Blockchain businesses is key
to establishing a solid source of income on a market almost free of competition.
This, however, does not mean that we will be less strict with our due diligence. We
will welcome only those businesses that will be ready to cooperate with us on
compliance procedures, including thorough audit.
Yes, AFCASH Token is ERC20 compliant and as such can be stored on Ethereum
wallets which support this protocol, such as the wallet offered on Africunia.io
Dashboard, MyEtherWallet, Mist, etc.

When making a purchase via a direct wire transfer, the bonus will be applied based
on the order creation date, not the transfer confirmation time (limited to 7 days). So,
if it takes longer than a day for your wire transfer to arrive you will still retain the
bonus which was active on the day you created the order. In order to prove the
transfer initiation date, we can request a copy of your statement.
Joining the investors board is open to all countries with some exceptions. These
exceptions lay within the regulations that are present in some jurisdictions, like
China, South Korea, the US. We encourage our investors to be prudent with their
decisions so as to not to create legal disputes.
Each AFRICUNIA Token (AFCASH) can be split down to 6 decimal points, with
0.000001 AFCASH being the smallest fraction.
Based on our market research, we have estimated the maximum amount of
investments we would be ready to accept. In order to correlate our liabilities with
possible spendings on R&D and operations, we are keen to minimizing the "floating
balance" which we wouldn't be able to use, but for which we would be paying
dividends. During the ICO a maximum of 1,000,000,000 AFCASH is available.
After the ICO the token will be listed on cryptocurrency exchanges. Besides trading,
each holder of AFCASH Tokens will be granted with annual dividend payouts and
we have allotted 20% of AFRICUNIA annual revenue for this purpose.
