@mmisztal1980 you can use Ask<T>, it returns Task<T>

@Silv3rcircl3 I'm not interested in a result, what I want is to make an async Tell call

Tell is by default async so you don't need to await it
By async I don't mean the async keyword but rather that the call returns even if the actor hasn't processed the message

Are there any detailed use cases on how Akka can be implemented for an API?
Or sample projects?

https://github.com/petabridge/akkadotnet-code-samples/tree/master/Cluster.WebCrawler ... but more involved than you probably want but think it has what you need in it
i think the standard way to call into akka from non akka is to use ask
if you need a response .. otherwise you can get an actor and just tell
you could also write an actor that contains a callback ... although some thought over threading would be required probably.
