Blockchain Pensions Infrastructure

The world’s pensions are in turmoil. As our societies are getting older, the systems designed to support us into retirement are massively inefficient.
If you were to spend your time and resources on the most time-sensitive problem that has the largest negative impact on the greatest number of people, regardless of age, race, gender, or location, what would it be?

Welcome To The Pensions Deficit Crisis

No solution exists within this fundamentally flawed system

Akropolis is helping to rid the world of flaws in pension funds with a new immutable and transparent smart-contract-based pension fund infrastructure that will dramatically change the way humanity thinks about saving and investing.
The Akropolis project aims to be the largest alternative pensions infrastructure in the world. We are creating decentralised pensions on the blockchain and a safer financial future for humanity, built by and for the people.

Quotes

“I first heard about the pension timebomb in 1996 when my professor Jim Ball, closed the semester with a warning that nobody was doing anything about it. Now, more than 20 years later, still nobody is doing anything about it, and we now know that regardless of pension contributions made youth, they are never going to get a pension. This – Akropolis – is the first time I’ve heard anyone come up with a positive, thought-out approach to the pension timebomb. I’m in.”

FAQ

Akropolis is helping to rid the world of flaws in pension funds with a new immutable and transparent Smart Contract-Based Pension Infrastructure.
  • 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.
  • The greek word ‘acropolis’ refers to the “upper city”, the first known human urban fortification, first established in what is now modern day Syria, followed by Ancient Greece and Rome. It is the defensive core of the city, a city within a city.
  • We chose to go with the Greek spelling. True to its name, Akropolis’ mission is to address the individual users’ needs - which are not addressed in the current pensions system with its misaligned incentives. We aim to re-dress them to incentivise distribution of the benefits of technology to the end users.
  • 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.
  • No, Akropolis is not a pension fund. Akropolis is a technology company dedicated to the delivery of the sector-specific protocol.
  • Consumers
  • Institutions
  • Developer community
  • Sector advisors and service providers
  • Not at this time. However the project is intended to be open source over time.
