Alternet Systems, Inc. announced that new manufacturing legislation will provide the company an advantage over competitors. ALYI plans to begin manufacturing its Revolt Electric Motorcycle in Kenya later this year. The company’s plan has always been to manufacture locally. Last week, Kenya advanced new legislation giving advantage to local motorcycle manufacturing initiatives and making import competition more difficult.
Some excerpts from news on new legislation:
‘It will instantly transform the motorcycle assembly sector in Kenya into one of the biggest private-sector employers and will eventually save money for motorcycle buyers. There was already a growing market for motorcycles in Kenya and the East African region.
The annual demand for motorcycles in Kenya was approximately 180,000 annually while in East Africa it was 680,000.If the company taps into this low hanging fruit exponentially, they will naturally become a hub of motorcycle manufacture and will eventually penetrate the entire African market through the African Continental Free Trade Agreement.’
ALYI has already entered into an agreement to receive a $25 million investment from RevoltTOKEN. The investment is part of a RevoltTOKEN planned initial cryptocurrency offering (ICO) intended to raise $100 million for an overall investment into ALYI’s $300 million electric mobility initiative in Africa.
RevoltTOKEN has published a draft white paper on its planed ICO that includes details on the high return on investment opportunity that can result from investing in Africa utilizing local resources.
‘The return on investment potential from delivering technology innovation to developing economic populations would be unbeatable for the next 100 years. Approximately 1.2 billion people today live in the developed economies of North American and Europe. With a global population of 7.7 billion, that left some 6.5 billion people living in regions of the world underserved by current technological capacities. Technology innovation that, for instance, improved energy efficiency and, in turn, increased access to power and transportation within developing economic countries could deliver Rockefeller returns to the investors backing the innovation. The current state of investment innovation backed by blockchain technology opened access to such investment opportunities to anyone with an internet connection. RevoltTOKEN (RVLT) was introducing a blockchain enabled cryptocurrency specifically for the purpose of providing everyone the opportunity to invest in the development and delivery of electric mobility technology innovation in Africa.’
