• Exploitative economy
The Asia Reserve Currency Coin is solving these issues with an economic approach that is;
• Accessible through the below-listed tech solution
• Create assets

This project is an upliftment for the unbanked and will definitely promote financial inclusion in Southeast Asia. ARCC is designed to provide debt-free capital to the urban working poor class.
ARCC USE CASE/REAL WORLD UTILITY
The dedicated ARCC.one will operate as an asset management platform based on the holdings of its users.

Algorand Strategic Partnership between IBMR.io; an Innovative Path To Financial Freedom
Algorand Inc. which remains the world’s first open-source, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake blockchain protocol has partnered with IBMR.io; the international blockchain monetary reserve and launched southeast Asia Microfinance platform and ARCC.one token.

SOV, is a term that refers to the “sovereign legal tender cryptocurrency” created by the Republic of the Marshall islands through SFB technologies using Algorand technology. SOV is money just like euro, pound, dollar but have an advantage over fiat as it is leveraging blockchain, therefore, making it fairly distributed.
The Republic of Marshall Islands is a country of 1100 islands with 50000 people scattered across 750,000 square miles of the Pacific Ocean. Cross border finance is not available therefore putting the people of the Republic of Marshall islands at a disadvantage. This is why a borderless finance system is needed which is why SOV is created.
A total of 24 million SOV will be created with 40% to be sold to people around the world. 4% of the total supply of SOV is released each year to SOV holders and miners without any going to the government. Unlike the traditional money system which is easily manipulated, SOV cannot be manipulated as its distribution is algorithmically fixed in the SOV blockchain
Advantages of SOV
• Fairly distributed
• Safe and secure
• Easy to use
