The COWRIE is an ERC20 token with many firsts when it comes to in-built protection mechanisms purposed to safeguard the value of the COWRIE for its holders, both in the beginning stages and also in the long-term.

Multi-layer Protection Plan

• The total supply of COWRIE to be released in circulation is capped at 1,412,463,573.
• Contributions of buyers in the launch VIP sale are stored in an escrow trust account which is placed under the management of Schindlers Si Attorneys.
• The escrow protection affords the holders of COWRIE, purchased from the VIP launch sale, a full refund in terms of the Stay Safe Protection Program.
• Year-on-year vesting means that the total supply of COWRIE will be gradually eased into the market over a 27-year period to control supply.
• In addition, a mechanism called the South African Pump and Dump Officer (SAPDO) is employed to monitor the COWRIE market value throughout each year so as to release annual vesting at a rate that maintains value.

To find out more about the Stay Safe Protection Program and the Double Vesting Protection Plan. See the COWRIE whitepaper for more information.

CRYPTO STAKING AT ITS BEST

COWRIE offers a Targeted Airstrike Gifting Model whereby anyone, including  institutions can nominate a community or a cause they want to support, and COWRIE can be airdropped into the wallets of the chosen community or cause recipients directly using peer to peer gifting

Targeted Airstrike

GIFTING MODEL

Journey into

Alkebulan

Alkabulan was created as a metaversette to preserve the rich cultural heritage of Africa. 

The Komjekejeke Heritage Site was converted into a photorealistic digital model, or as some refer to as a “digital twin”. This forms the basis of the experience and the new era of metaversettes and 3D spaces that are becoming accessible to anyone anywhere in the world.

Each year on Mandela day 6,409 COWRIE will vest into each NFT for the next 26 years, a total of 166 634 COWRIE.

Each NFT has unique art. A one-of-a-kind, true African flavour. 

On each NFT trade 2.5% royalties go directly to the wallet of the local artist and the owner, The Living Artists Emporium who has for years and years supported the livelihoods of these struggling artists.

As the COWRIE increases in value, the NFT will follow.

Help the fight against poverty.
Together we can put a smile on Africa’s faces.
