Idea & token
Acropolis is a decentralised pension platform that offers transparent, accountable, and portable pension services for modern workers. Workers will have complete control over their pensions without the need for the third-party.
Akropolis provides an efficient gateway between both individual users and pension funds, and the fund/asset managers who traditionally manage pension investments.
The platform will initially be built on Ethereum.
There are two main tokens: external utility (AKT) token and volatile-free internal (AIT) token. ATK can be used for onboarding and platform access, purchase platform data and premium services. AIT is an arbitrary stable token. User’s funds are represented digitally by AITs, which can be exchanged for both crypto and fiat deposits.

Pros. Akropolis is the first project that proposed the idea of a decentralized pension system. The project is led by a strong and professional team with a serious experience and knowledge in the corresponding sphere. Since 2017, the project is being developed due to angel investments. We can only imagine how difficult it was for the project to obtain the investments. The website contains a detailed, high-quality and thoroughly thought-out Whitepaper.
Cons. The main risks of the project are seen in the objective conservatism of people regarding the theme of pension savings. It will take considerable time for Akropolis to gain the trust of the first users and to prove its reliability and profitability in practice. Even insignificant incidents in the field of cyber-risks can cause serious consequences for the project and its reputation.
