Self-Onboarding Mining Application (SOMA)
The SHAKTi Coin presents an entirely new concept of mining cryptocurrency. It makes the process of mining a cooperative effort and accessible to all. It levels the playing field of wealth generation to individual's effort. It enables humanity to create and share the value that has been created within that community's own initiative.
Unlike other digital currencies, SHAKTi Coin is neither mined through computational achievement nor by one individual. It can be minted through a collective human achievement in the advancement of education. It is a cooperative system where people at the grassroots level pull together to support schoolchildren's education in their community and to stimulate their local economy in that process.
