What is CityDAO?

The CityDAO community is made up of ambitious and HIGHLY curious people exploring and building at the frontier of technology, governance experiments and physical land.

The vision of CityDAO is to build the city of the future on the Ethereum blockchain by experimenting with tokenizing land, rights, and governance. ๐Ÿ™

๐ŸŒ† Big congrats to DeWork on their recent raise!

๐ŸŒ† When Will We Live In A Network City? What Could That Look Like? // Joni Baboci

โ€œWhatโ€™s next is something that doesnโ€™t look like the city of today. And I think that all of us subconsciously are in a way, thinking of and trying to work towards. We donโ€™t know which, so the future is a bit like a cone, weโ€™re narrowing the angle. We know the direction we have to walk and think towards, but we still donโ€™t know where weโ€™re going.โ€

๐ŸŒ† CityDAO Journal has a new article: Quadratic Funding and the Future of Public Goods

๐ŸŒ† We hosted a Turkish AMA (our biggest AMA yet!)

๐ŸŒ† Startup Cities, DAOs, & The Future Of Modern City Development // Zach Caceres

โ€œThe physical world needs to be made better, and the way we make things better, in other aspect of our life, is again, my opinion, Science, Technology, and Entrepreneurship. I jokingly call this the Holy Trinity of my world view. And why would we not take these very powerful tools that consistently proven their value and effectiveness in other areas of our life, why would we not take them and generalize them onto cities.โ€

๐ŸŒ† Check out the recording of the AMA with Future Thinkers!

๐ŸŒ† @scottfits created a list of DAOs with contribution opportunities. Check it out below:

๐ŸŒ† Another video added to the CityDAO YouTube page!
