Known as the African Startup League, the initiative will empower 10,000 African owned enterprises to compete for a grand prize of $1 million (Sh 117.9 million), where each business will build technologies on blockchain.

"Blockchain and Africa are inevitable. There is no bigger opportunity on the planet today to do good for humanity while making incredible returns", said Marcus Dukes, Founder of the Humanity Node Protocol.

The Humanity Node Protocol and Web3Africa project is issuing 300,000 Humanity NFTs on or before August 8th, 2022 to 300,000 Africans who have been registered and had their identities verified.

HNP based in Nairobi, Kenya has partnered with Adanian Labs (also based in Nairobi) to create the business model and operating protocols for the Humanity NFTs and expect the Humanity NFTs will generate over $1,000 a month ($12,000 a year) income for the chosen recipients awarded the Humanity NFTs.

Each awardee is required to commit 100 hours of service to Humanity Node Protocol which will create 30,000,000 hours committed to further building out the infrastructure needed to usher in the African era of hyper-economic growth.
