About

Kaafila is a decentralized media and education project built with blockchain technology. We are starting with a new video sharing platform, through which we will offer useful content, including free courses, tests, certifications, internships and jobs to a wide range Users worldwide. The Kaafila (KFL) token will help in achieving our project goals by rewarding Users and Team Members for their efforts.


Vision

Kaafila aims to provide useful content along with learning and growth opportunities, to help our Users progress in their career and life.

Our vision is to use our blockchain technology platform for delivering quality education (mostly free or at very low cost) to students/youth worldwide — so that anybody can learn and earn, irrespective of their present economic condition — and we will reward merit/performance with awards, scholarships, internships, and jobs. We want to encourage individual content creators, in all industries/niches, with best possible rewards for their content.


Kaafila will offer a decentralized video sharing platform, which means: transparency, efficiency, and support for independent content providers. We are creating video sharing platform on blockchain, using Algorand and IPFS technology.

The following chart describes our focus areas. Each focus area will have its own team and goals, and each team will aim to achieve global recognition for its work.

 

Kaafila’s motto is: “Knowledge for Lifetime”, and the same is reflected in our token name “KFL”. Over next 10 years, we believe that Kaafila project will help millions of people in their education and career, through the courses, tests, certificates, and internships offered through our platform.

The focus is on offering wide range of learning resources either free or at very low cost, so that people across the world can learn and benefit irrespective of their current income level. The focus is also on creating a large network of people worldwide who are constantly learning to progress in their career and life.

We also want to support and promote a wide range of creative people involved in music, arts, sports, etc — through regular competitions, awards, and promotional gigs. For example, Kaafila is developing an “NFT Marketplace” to enable artists and creative professionals to earn more from their craft.

Support for Social Causes is a key driver and major motivation for Kaafila team, and we believe that support for social causes will make Kaafila project truly successful, and enable worldwide adoption for KFL token. Social Causes will be supported and managed by our “Trust & Safety” team. We aim to support a wide range of social causes worldwide, through our “Social Causes System”, which will enable Kaafila Team Members and Users to list and support social causes using KFL token. Most of these social causes will be linked to providing food, education, healthcare, hope, and relief in emergency situations. We want to use our free education courses to benefit children/youth from poor economic backgrounds, by forging partnerships with local entities/schools/social workers. Support for Veterans is also an important cause, and we plan to work with multiple Veterans support groups.

Technology
Technologically, the Proof-of-Work blockchain is not suitable for handling transactional systems (high frequency and volume of data). Kaafila has tested the blockchain-only solution and found it to be too costly, too slow, and to have a lack of privacy in storing decryption keys – and that is why we use a hybrid stack: the smart contract on Blockchain, payments, and governance; and the already established SQL database with a Node.js application server providing the API for transactional operations between the players and the core platform. We observe the growth of side-chain systems technology and look forward to its readiness for business.

Kaafila is powered by Algorand.

About Algorand: The convergence between decentralized and traditional financial models is accelerating and we are here to power it. Our open source technology is intentionally designed to enable the simple creation of next generation financial products and disrupt economic models across industries where the exchange of value can be made more efficient.

Algorand removes the technical barriers that for years undermined mainstream blockchain adoption: decentralization, scale, and security. Our consensus mechanism is permissionless and “pure proof of stake”. It ensures full participation, protection, and speed within a truly decentralized network. With blocks finalized in seconds, Algorand’s transaction throughput is on par with large payment and financial networks. And Algorand is the first blockchain to provide immediate transaction finality. The era of a decentralized, borderless economy is here. Algorand is the foundation.
