[PRESS RELEASE – Jakarta, Indonesia, February 6th, 2024]
In an unprecedented move, Saakuru Labs (formerly known as AAG), leading innovators in the Web3 infrastructure sector, has teamed up with Relawan Konco Kulo Gibran, as an appointed tech partner by Prabowo-Gibran presidential campaign in Indonesia for the election campaign, slated to happen on February 14th, 2024. This collaboration marks the first-ever use of Blockchain and NFT-based gamified Presidential Election Campaign globally, with the youngest-ever vice-presidential candidate in Indonesian history, aimed at engaging Generation Z and showcasing Indonesia’s pioneering role in applying cutting-edge technology.
Saakuru App, TomoOne gamification platform, and gas-fee-less Saakuru Blockchain will be used to introduce “Konco Kulo Gibran: THE DUO”, symbolizing the two candidates running together, a user-friendly gamified education platform designed to capture the attention of Indonesia’s younger generation (a demographic that constitutes over 50% of the population and is estimated at 140M people). The initiative is a part of the Prabowo-Gibran’s “HILIRISASI DIGITAL” (Digital Downstreaming) program, ensuring active participation in advanced technology applications, and offering children in Indonesia unparalleled access to learn and build careers in global technology sectors.
Prabowo and Gibran, strong proponents of Web3, seized the opportunity to adopt the NFT gating concept by employing the “Konco Kulo Gibran: THE DUO”. Their aim was twofold: to educate the public about this innovative approach and to employ it as a key to unlock access to EdTech platforms. This initiative is designed to enhance English proficiency in Indonesia, foster an understanding of Web3 technology, and demonstrate how AI can create a distinctive and effective learning experience.
“Through our collaboration with Web3 infrastructure leader, Saakuru Labs, we eagerly anticipate the ‘Konco Kulo Gibran: THE DUO’ game ecosystem. This initiative is key to reaching Indonesia’s younger generation, exposing them to high-tech, and engaging them in opportunities that harness their potential. Our partnership with Saakuru Labs is a clear demonstration of our commitment to integrating innovative technologies for a brighter, more technologically adept Indonesia, offering enhanced global work opportunities and a forward-looking perspective.”

It’s an honor to participate in this pivotal initiative, aimed at bridging the gap between Indonesia’s younger generation and the world of cutting-edge technology.
