The entrepreneur and singer behind Akon City, the crypto project “fueled” by Akoin, will support Brock Pierce, a well-known venture capitalist in the crypto industry, during his campaign for the US presidential election.
According to Cheddar, online news anchor, JD Durkin has reported that Akon will serve as Chief Strategist throughout Pierce’s election campaign. According to the report, Pierce also cited the singer’s Bitcoin System successes in Africa and his experience as a businessman and artist, as some of the reasons that led him to choose Akon in his run for the presidential election.
In this regard, Akon stated:
I’ve always known that Brock Pierce was a good guy. He is an authentic person and does not move among the ranks of the party. We share the same dream of moving America forward without any favoritism of any kind.
Pierce runs to win
In a recent interview with Cointelegraph, Pierce revealed that one of his main strategies is to steal electoral votes from Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
This strategy is perhaps the only possible way to reach the presidency. In fact, Pierce announced his candidacy in early July, after the deadline for applications for independents had expired in Indiana, New Mexico, North Carolina and Texas. If neither Trump nor Biden achieves 270 or more electoral votes, the U.S. House of Representatives will have the task of determining the final vote of the first three candidates for the presidency, including Pierce.
Akon’s presence during the campaign could bring considerable visibility to Pierce and help to increase interest in the cryptocurrency sector. Akon is currently working on the construction of Akon City, the crypto project “fed” by Akoin that will occupy 2,000 acres in Senegal.
