What a wild last few weeks! Grab a hot beverage of your choice and check out what has been up in the CityDAO-land community. 🌆

The vision of CityDAO is to build the city of the future on the Ethereum blockchain by tokenizing land, rights, and governance.
See the landing page below for more information.
First, let’s do a quick recap of the CityDAO adventure so far:
Month 1: July - laying the groundwork
Month 2: August - bolstering the treasury
To think, in less than 2 months CityDAO has gone from hundreds of strangers coming together from a tweet to registering one of the first LLC DAOs in the USA to forming various teams to the community raising enough capital to purchase actual land!
What’s next? 😁
For anyone who wants to grab a Citizen NFT, feel free to do so below:
Also, here’s a breakdown on the different NFTs:

Some recent tweets we love:
Random lines taken out of context from the CityDAO community!
During the weekend my DAOist alter ego takes over.
Real estate colliding with NFTs is beautiful
glad to be here exciting times ahead!
DAOs powered by blockchains are going to do to governance what synthesizers and sampling did to music... Entire new genres born from mashups of mashups.
i co-founded a startup that finances solar-powered drip irrigation in Africa and can confirm labor intensity (even with productivity-enhancing tech like drip irrigation). personally wouldn’t look at investing in traditional agri without robotics or hydro/aeroponics. too much opex chasing too little margin that only makes sense at massive scale
are we buying next to kanye?
Centuries ago, explorers sailed the seas to discover lands unknown. In the 2020s, earth's continents have been charted, but a new frontier exists - the missing connection between land and a digital ledger. That's why we are building CityDAO.
I subdivided land in Hawaii. It gets complex. You have to not only collect fees for maintenance but handle disputes. For example one person may just drive a small car on the road, but a neighbor farm has big heavy dump trucks (commercial) causing significantly more wear.
I'm a Gitcoin Kernel fellow and VC
Cities are made up of a ton of people, each doing their own thing to make it function, somewhat autonomous, can create their own laws, regulation, strategies, and organized under a single banner of identity with defined limits, I mean it ain’t perfect...
We need more CityDAO IRL meetups.
“private keys to the city”
all funds will go to buying our first parcel and shipping the web3 and solidity parcel minting app
The 791 voting system is a cool concept but it doesn’t solve the issue of fake identities, it simply just makes it harder
pretty cool, I think NFTs are just getting started and will probably get used for land as well
So far the path has been subdividing. People will buy (choose) an actual parcel. My understanding of other methods (shares) is more effort needs to be done with securities laws. Lots of approaches have been discussed in the other channels
Honestly might be better off building hydroponics and automating crop production. Full disclosure I’m the founder of a startup that’s 3D printing vertical towers, so I am biased towards an option like that. You can grow them pretty much anywhere, although energy costs vary based on location.
the weekend is for DAO exploration eh?
So many ideas! It’s just about building up to them, and not going bankrupt trying to do one at the start.
May be far in ideology but solving the Byzantine General's problem, alongside reading the Ottoman Empire book could yield something connected to DAOs
Ready for DAOCon summer 2022
Didn't imagine folks to know about Seoul but yeah, Heabanchon is the place obviously. Definitely should contact me whenever you visit Seoul
Starting to think local DAO concierge service might actually be an interesting play for City DAO business model
☕️ Shout-out to @jasminew and @scottfits for sharing this super inspiring project:
☕️ I know I know I know I’m biased, but @0xYeurri & @Iamjason shared this article in CityDAO and it’s a great read! If you haven’t already, definitely check out 1729.com (a project Balaji & others are working on).
That's all for this roundup!
See y'all next time,
