Dallas, TX -- November 26, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Alternet Systems, Inc. (USOTC: ALYI) published an update on its new investment project intended to substantially expand ALYI’s current initiative to build electric vehicles in Africa for the African market. ALYI management maintains that Africa holds higher potential for eclectic vehicle sector growth than any other region within the global electric vehicle market anticipated to reach over $550 billion by 2025. Africa is urbanizing at a rate that exceeds twice the global average. Car ownership in Africa is extremely low at only 2% per capita compared to 70% in the U.S. and 50% in Europe leaving tremendous room for growth. Shared riding has been a custom in Africa long-before phone apps made the rest of the world aware of the shared ride market. ALYI is betting on the rapid adoption of electric vehicles for the shared ride market in Africa and positioning to be the leader in the field of manufacturing electric vehicles for the African shared ride market.
ALYI has initiated and continues to develop $300 million in electric vehicle projects in Africa targeting the shared ride market. Through a partnership, ALYI has recently announced a finance initiative intended to dramatically expand its electric vehicle developments in Africa. ALYI last week hosted a kick off meeting in Dallas with IW Global (www.IW-Global.com), and ALYI’s Kenyan electric vehicle production partner to raise $100 million to fund infrastructure for the ongoing production of electric vehicles in Africa.
IW Global has proposed launching and managing an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on ALYI’s behalf specifically targeted at raising $100 million to fund infrastructure for electric vehicle production in Africa. IW Global, a well-established technology firm with a wide breadth of experience spanning projects for NASA and more has recently implemented multiple blockchain solutions, has proposed launching and managing an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on ALYI’s behalf specifically targeted at raising $100 million to fund infrastructure for electric vehicle production in Africa.
ALYI and IW Global have formulated a plan whereby, ALYI’s production and marketing partners in Kenya will form a new company (NewCo) with the specific focus of building a new, state of the art electric vehicle production plant. This NewCo will be a separate company apart from ALYI but exclusively contracted by ALYI for producing ALYI designed vehicles. The NewCo is the business entity that would initiate the proposed ICO. The funds would be dedicated to 1. Building the plant and 2. Funding the production of ALYI’s vehicles. A successful ICO would permit ALYI to substantially accelerate and expand upon its initial $300 million in existing electric vehicle projects.
ALYI has engaged legal counsel to ensure the cryptocurrency launch would be executed in compliance with prevailing regulatory guidelines.
ALYI has engaged Goldman Small Cap Research to conduct a survey with first time and experienced cryptocurrency investors in conjunction with a potential $100 million initial coin offering (ICO) that would provide strategic financing to fund a major expansion of the company’s electric vehicle developments.
Ethereum is the proposed underling platform for the ALYI cryptocurrency launch.
The Ethereum platform and blockchain is the most reliable existing blockchain and is supported by the Ethereum Foundation, based in Zug, Switzerland and the Ethereum Enterprise Alliance based in the USA with members like Microsoft, Intel, Mastercard, UBS, BBVA, Banco Santander, among others. IW Global is experienced with Ethereum and has launched previous cryptocurrencies build on the Ethereum platform.
Coming out of the meetings last week, ALYI with its partners, plan to soon announce a new company in Kenya that will be the target of investment and building a state-of-the-art electric vehicle research and development and production center. A separate business entity for managing the sale of cryptocurrency to fund the Kenyan business will be established within a European venue. A website on the overall initiative is planned to soon be launched. The website will include a whitepaper on the African electric vehicle development cryptocurrency.
ALYI management plans to publish continued progress reports as the ICO strategy develops.
