Afropolitan is building a digital nation to enable all Africans, its diaspora, and its allies to live abundant lives. We are creating a foundation built on a new ideology of abundance to accomplish our mission.
Society is still entrenched in old, colonial systems favoring zero-sum games in a scramble for scarce resources. To break free, we need to look back at our heritage and reclaim our ancestors' abundant mindset through history and mythology.
These stories are the fundamental fabric of any nation, and Afropolitan is taking this into the digital age. We have curated 500 works of art - each represented by its own unique character - that signify the pioneering 500 members of our emerging society.
The founding citizen passports feature highly specialized traits from luminescent skins to starlit eyes. They represent the diversity of our young nation and the promise of an infinite future for all of us everywhere.
Benefits of early citizenship include:
The Afropolitan Network
Get access to a global community of professional builders who understand your needs.
Afropolitan Peer Support Group
Accelerate your journey as a builder in curated peer working groups where you can learn and lean on each other. These groups of 5-8 people will be curated by Afropolitan to meet once a month.
Come together with builders throughout the Afropolitan community at virtual and in-person gatherings.
Access to a member-only platform that facilitates new connections with like-minded builders to share ideas and network.
These digital passports are available by application only.
To start, we will create 500 founding citizen passports for the digital country we are building. To honor the birth of a new nation we wanted the art to be children that represent a fresh start. Each child was handcrafted to showcase the beauty and richness of Africa. We collaborated with Oghosa who brought this vision to life.
Beyond just basic ID info, each passport will have artistic traits unique to each piece, symbolizing our new society's future. Think of it as a private club membership with cultural and educational experiences, but made much more powerful by the opportunity to create an impact with like-minded builders.
