Akropolis is conceived as a distributed savings and pension fund-this is what it described in its initial statement as the solution to the "imminent pension deficit apocalypse" caused by the inevitable collapse of the national pension system. But in August 2020, the company stated that it had shifted its focus to building the underlying framework for such systems by creating AkropolisOS to allow for the rapid launch of profitable capital pools.
AkropolisOS is a Solidity-based modular framework for creating and managing distributed capital pools. It is the foundation of the company's Sparta and Delphi platforms, the former providing access to unsecured loans. Akropolis claims that, unlike other DeFi agreements, its products reduce the risks associated with these loans by providing community incentives in the form of AKRO to those who provide accurate risk assessments.
Akropolis is a company operating a decentralized financial protocol based on Ethereum, aiming to provide an autonomous financial ecosystem for saving and growing wealth, including through lending. To this end, it provides a series of products, including AkropolisOS, a framework for developing profitable decentralized autonomous organizations, Sparta, an unsecured loan platform, and Delphi, an income agriculture aggregator and dollar cost averaging tool. The project uses the ERC-20 token AKRO for protocol governance of its product suite. Akropoli was first announced in March 2018 and released on the Ethereum mainnet in June 2020.
