The futuristic crypto city will be located in the Cadastral de Mbodiene park. Akon said construction should begin early next year, adding that only the first phase of the project could take more than three years. He previously stated that the first phase of Akon City will be completed by 2023, and the entire city, powered by the akoin cryptocurrency, will be completed as planned in 2029.

Akon also expressed the hope that his Akon City project will provide the necessary jobs for people in Senegal and serve as a home for Black Americans and others facing racial injustice.
