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

procedures, including thorough audit.

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 500,000,000 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.
