In late October 2019, the Qoin Team was hired by the international NGO Solidaridad to conduct a 7-day training on Tokenization for Inclusive Local Development. Qoin's top team of trainers from Amsterdam, Lisbon, New York and Indonesia gathered in Lusaka to provide the training to some of Solidaridad's teams working on Token Incentivization programs.
The training took the participants through every step of the full token design process, from identifying challenges and opportunities to understanding the challenges that token designers face when encouraging people to use money in new ways. These new ways, Solidaridad hopes, will lead to more effective and measureable outcomes for their efforts to facilitate economic empowerment and agricultural improvement throughout the Africa region.
“ Solidaridad is best known as the NGO that launched the Fair Trade Movement in the early 1970s under the brand Max Havelaar.”
By the end of the training, four teams had completed the required outcomes of the training, and were ready to take their plans back to their organizations to transmit what they had learned and to review what they had designed.
Qoin is now expecting to deliver further trainings for Solidaridad for these and other projects worldwide.
