PROJECT DESCRIPTION.

Africa remains a potent force and an untapped market in the crypto space, this initiative seeks to achieve.

  1. Develop and build a very vibrant icon community in Africa, seek out partnerships in the continent and onboard Devs from the continent into Icon. We will be using the power of social media engagements like twitter, organizing and attending events and meetups to present the icon project,article writing, reaching out to crypto communities through “ask me anything sessions” on different exchanges like Binance Nigeria, Huobi Nigeria and other groups we will also leverage the power of graphics that speak.

  2. Set up and grow the IcxArmy twitter handle,the aim is to gather people from different areas and geographies whose sole job is to tweet and retweet information that will help the project,it is intended to get social media sentiments about icon very high and also kill fuds if any should come up.even the ceo of Binace adviced projects to set aside some funds for the sole purpose of fighting FUD, his advice can be found here https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1197720622681321472 .

the power of social media cannot be over emphasized.we will be running regular giveaways on the handle to build a very large Army for marketing purposes. as at the time of submitting this proposal the icxArmy twitter handle is already being set up.

Hi there, overall I like the idea of having compassionate team in Africa. However, before we give out grant I think your team should build more credential in order to get it. Could you be more active in ICON community for next one or two month so we can build trust each other? thanks!

Thanks for the response, my team is quite active on twitter, will be more active on telegram if that is what you meant.
