Blockchain Cities Alliance

The premier global organization aligning key stakeholders from local and regional governments, urban based blockchain technology companies and researchers to connect the smart cities movement with decentralized blockchain technologies.

About

As the world continues to urbanize, cities have struggled with the challenges of meeting the growing demands for housing, food, energy, water, jobs, homes and mobility solutions. The challenges for cities to address such diverse demands from growing populations helped give rise to the smart cities movement. While most early smart cities initiatives were driven by global ICT companies and through top-down political leadership. In recent years, leading cities are starting to embrace citizen co-creation. At the same time, blockchain technologies are emerging as a disruptive, transformational force across nearly every industry. Blockchain technologies pose significant potential for smart cities to achieve their efficiency and transparency objectives while enabling smart cities to reinforce citizen co-creation objectives. Dubai has established itself as a pioneer in this space, having set a goal to be the world’s first blockchain-powered city by 2020, with 20 blockchain projects already coming online. New York City recently announced plans to follow Dubai’s lead. The Blockchain Cities Alliance (BCA) was established to help connect the smart cities movement with the disruptive, decentralization power of blockchain technology.

Objectives

The Blockchain Cities Alliance aims to support a global movement of smart cities embracing blockchain technologies. BCA will serve as a trade association connecting smart cities with blockchain projects, blockchain experts, blockchain investors and accelerators while serving as advocates for the promotion of successful use cases of blockchain in cities.

Proposed Activities

BCA will perform the role of a traditional trade association. This includes:

  • Blockchain cities research and outreach to media and other stakeholders
  • Regional and global standards for key open protocols across major dimensions of smart cities (environment, government, mobility, healthy and lifestyle, etc.)
  • Member services and highlighting use cases from members
  • Internal member workshops and knowledge sharing
  • Potential Blockchain Cities events and collaborations with other smart cities and blockchain events

Social justice is the equal distribution of resources and opportunities within a system that is rooted in inequality. We are a collective of social justice minded individuals from various sectors coming together to support the development of blockchain projects that serve the most vulnerable.
We believe every blockchain project should be designed to uplift marginalized communities and eliminate the wealth gap, poverty, inter-generational trauma and promote true democracy within unfair institutions. Cryptocurrency is a tool of economic sovereignty. In order to make sure it is used as such, efforts must be made to reclaim its purpose.
