The current pensions system is based on outdated assumptions, is rife with conflicts of interest and lacks transparency and accountability. We are addressing that by designing from the ground-up solution that meets peoples’ needs.
The two aspects necessarily have to be brought together in a coherent protocol in order to create a future-proof solution that takes into account how we live, work and consume.
Akropolis is a technology platform designed to address deep-seated structural issues of the global pensions sector. It is designed to be a multi-jurisdictional platform for the delivery of pensions, social welfare and future benefits in a portable manner, that over time brings together individual end users and large institutional players in a new system of incentives.
Akropolis is a transparent, decentralized, accountable and mobile pension infrastructure. Ecosystem, which builds the project, is designed to make the system of pension payments more modern and fairer.
The Akropolis platform is designed to provide the users with the transition from the existing pension infrastructure to more flexible, transparent and accountable system. The basic services are free of charge, but the platform will also have expanded (premium) services, the list of which will increase as the platform develops.
The World Economic Forum believes that at the moment about 48% of the inhabitants of the Earth of old age do not receive a pension! It is worth noting that pension savings are growing every year, and if in 2015 the total amount of world savings was 70 trillion dollars, then by 2050 it is forecasted to reach 400 trillion dollars. Compounding the problem and making the pension funds inadequately effective are quite complex compensation structures that do not have an objective level of transparency.
The creators of the project believe that fair management, the integration of key participants, the creation of a high level of work of the funds will be possible through the use of blockchain technologies and the use of smart contract systems.
AKROPOLIS AND BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
Akropolis has the ultimate aspiration of using blockchain in the development of a centralized pension platform with a variety of blockchains such as EOS, Cardano, and RSK to deliver a trustless range of retirement savings products. The leverage of recent technological development with a transparent, portable and accountable pension service to modern workers is one the Akropolis goals.
As a technology platform, Akropolis is designed to address some of the deep-seated structural issues experienced in today’s global pension sector. Akropolis also features a multi-jurisdictional platform for everyday delivery of pensions, future benefits and social welfare in a manner that is simple and in time brings together to new incentive system both end users and large institutional players.
The main users of the platform will be the private users (pension investors), pension funds, investment funds, asset tokenizers and external developers who will be rewarded for their contribution to improving the platform. The platform will form a holistic ecosystem around the global pension economy.
Individuals (pensioners) will be able to save and increase pension savings thanks to Acropolis. They will have a personal access key to the system and a personal account;
Commercial and public funds will be able to create their own infrastructure within the ecosystem and attract pensioners;
Fund managers will be able to manage placed assets from individuals and pension funds;
The task of intermediaries is to “digitize” real assets and confirm authenticity upon request. For example, an ordinary pensioner places the national currency in the Acropolis system, and the intermediary is obliged to issue tokens to the user for the amount of funds;
Developers in the form of individuals or companies will provide the development of convenient services for all users for withdrawal and Deposit of funds.
