• The first city in the United States with his kryptowalutą:
Trying to reduce dependence on Federal funding within the administration of trump, the city of Berkeley plans to issue its own cryptocurrency.
The city of Berkeley wants to become the first city in the United States, which has its own ecosystem kryptowaluty in which coins or tokens supported municipal bonds can be used as legal tender in stores and restaurants to pay the rent, or as donations to the city. In addition, the money collected thanks to kryptowalucie will help create more affordable housing among the growing population of the homeless.
Member of the Municipal Council, Berkeley Ben Bartlett says for Business Insider:
Berkeley is a center of resistance, and for resistance to work, should have its own coin.
Bartlett is not alone. His influential colleagues from the team that, among other things, the mayor of Berkeley, Jesse Arreguín, a startup financial technology, Neighborly and UC Berkeley Blockchain Laboratory. Together they hope to launch their own initial coins (ICO), which is called «Preliminary proposal for the community».
Proposed Berkeley wykorzystywałaby cryptocurrency Blockchain technology as a means of sale of municipal bonds. Traditionally, bonds are not the most attractive offer for investment but Berkeley hope that the growing popularity of kryptowaluty will attract investors, community oriented, dealing with issues of socio-economic city. Co-founder of Love Jain says Business Insider:
In contrast to the majority of ICO, which provide the coins for future value, or services, these coins will be a real protection offered for a specific purpose.
However, much remains to be done before the real cryptocurrency supported Berkeley will go into circulation in the Blockchain, especially considering not the best reputation the ICO at this point. If you succeed, entrepreneurship Barkley can help legitimize as ICO, and kryptowaluty.
The city in which Berkeley tries to create its own cryptocurrency, is a response to the December signing of the Republicans trump the tax bill that deters private contractors for constructing affordable housing through the removal of existing incentives. When affordable housing in the city are becoming less common, but homelessness is growing at an alarming rate, Berkeley fears long-term consequences of the law. According to city officials, one percent of the population of Berkeley was homeless in 2017 – and maintained their cryptocurrency can help solve this problem. Bartlett told Business Insider:
In fact, this allows us to fulfill our duty as a government. The breach of the obligation, it is to let people sleep on the streets.
As one of the first epicentrów the counterculture of the sixties, Berkeley was always a liberal capital in the United States. The city has no Republican mayor since 1971, and its residents often oppose conservative policies. In this regard, it is not surprising that Berkeley is one of the cities directed against Trumpowi in the United States, especially if we are talking about the immigration policy of the President.
Voltage associated with the current administration is constantly growing, especially after President trump has supported Federal funding of the University of California at Berkeley in February 2017, as a result of protests caused by the speech of the analyst Milo Yiannopoulosa at the University. If successful, Berkeley could be, in fact, use kryptowaluty to reduce dependence on Federal funding from the administration trump.
