As per the World Bank, less than one-third of Africa’s population has access to broadband internet. As a result, even as the world becomes more interconnected, millions of Africans continue to lack adequate internet access, limiting their access to life-changing opportunities worldwide. The Covid-19 pandemic has also increased our collective reliance on the internet, as millions of people now study and work remotely, necessitating constant personal internet access.
The lack of proper internet infrastructure exacerbates underdevelopment in third-world countries and has negative effects on education. Young students who do not have access to the internet are often left behind and are unable to perform satisfactorily.
The same is true for community well-being, as the internet broadens communication channels and provides access to healthcare, financial services, entertainment, and basic goods that would otherwise be unavailable.
3air Will Bring Telecom Services to African Countries
The 3air company is on a mission to solve physical infrastructure problems in areas with poor connectivity. It has formed a strategic alliance with K3 Telecom to support its “K3 Last Mile” project in African nation-states. The problems with Internet connectivity will be solved by providing Africans with wireless broadband access.
The “Last Mile” program is intended to provide Internet, IP telephony, and digital television access to personal computers and corporate digital systems. According to statements made by the 3air team, each station covers a radius of 31 miles or more. In addition, each base station will provide broadband Internet access to more than 15,000 users.
3air will use the 3AIR token on the Cardano (ADA) blockchain to create a next-generation payment ecosystem for its products. 3AIR is also a utility and governance token. 3AIR holders have access to the full range of 3air services, can participate in bandwidth sharing markets, and can insure and maintain infrastructure.
Furthermore, 3AIR is appropriate for community governance, staking, digital identity creation, rewards and loyalty systems, and a tool to assist referral program enthusiasts and agents.
What’s to Expect From 3air Soon
The 3AIR token will be launched on BNB Chain and eventually become a multi-chain token to allow users greater access.
The SKALE network serves as the foundation for the 3air platform. SKALE is a high-performance multi-chain network that provides a scalable solution for the Ethereum blockchain, with no end-user gas fees, superior scaling, and fast transactions.
The 3AIR token will be the platform’s native token to power network transactions and purchase all 3air services. In addition, the 3AIR token will also be used to power new services such as collateralized microloans and a loyalty program.
The token has a limited supply and will be used to govern the platform by the community once the project establishes its own decentralized autonomous organization (DAO). In addition, approximately 10% of the token supply will be used to reward holders who choose to participate in the upcoming liquidity pool.
3air is a blockchain-powered company aiming to expand its protocol functionalities and onboard several ISP services, creating an internet infrastructure capable of connecting and empowering several African countries. It is also committed to fostering the growth of blockchain and cryptocurrency in Africa.
It is impossible to overstate the importance of leveling the playing field and providing equal opportunities to millions of African individuals and businesses.
