Crypto Cities

One interesting trend of the last year has been the growth of interest in local government, and in the idea of local governments that have wider variance and do more experimentation. Over the past year, Miami mayor Francis Suarez has pursued a Twitter-heavy tech-startup-like strategy of attracting interest in the city, frequently engaging with the mainstream tech industry and crypto community on Twitter. Wyoming now has a DAO-friendly legal structure, Colorado is experimenting with quadratic voting, and we’re seeing more and more experiments making more pedestrian-friendly street environments for the offline world. We’re even seeing projects with varying degrees of radicalness – Cul de sacTelosaCityDAONkwashiProspera and many more – trying to create entire neighborhoods and cities from scratch.
