Mission

Our mission is to develop smart cities that provide affordable housing, sustainable agriculture, and alternative energy resulting in reduced carbon footprint that runs through a decentralized, transparent, and collaborative economy.

Vision

We envision a collaborative world, where data is transparent and people build upon our technology through self-sustainable communities where housing and food are provided for and wealth is built-in resulting in the stewardship of the planet and of each other.

Why

The current challenge is we are in a pandemic, entering an economic recession, and still inside a global timeout that greatly affects the lower and middle classes financially. The Federal Reserve recently printed over $6 Trillion for COVID relief, and likely more stimulus is coming. Record unemployment claims and hyperinflation are real ongoing threats to the legacy financial system. Our disposable culture has wreaked havoc on the earth and left us feeling isolated and disconnected. We need to make positive change, and we need to ACT NOW.
