Blockchains City appeared in Dezeen's article on North American smart cities.
From a smart forest in Mexico to a Nevada desert city powered by blockchain, a wave of smart cities are being proposed in North America.
Jeffrey Berns- who made a fortune selling cryptocurrency last year- has bought a large parcel of Nevada's desert with the aim of turning it into a smart city powered by blockchain technology.
The Innovation Park city is intended to be designed by Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects and Tom Wiscombe Architecture and based on blockchain – a set of digital records that track transactions chronologically and publicly, but cannot be modified – to offer greater privacy and data control. For example, occupants of Innovation Park would be able to bank, vote and store data in the blockchain- without including middlemen or the government.
