Opportunity for investorsThe digital economy has seen online monopolies dominate the marketplace. Through their consolidation of profit, they have been able to control local commerce and community connection. DigitalTown is uniquely positioned to lead the emerging cooperative commerce movement representing the global response by city stakeholders seeking greater economic prosperity. Our global operating framework is led by a seasoned leadership team, a growing global advocate network and is rooted in a modern blockchain technology layer, with distribution channels that generate responsible growth and impactful returns to investors.
The future of local economiesBringing the power of decentralized and distributed economic prosperity to communities will be this era’s greatest opportunity for responsible growth and purpose. Our network already has participating cities led by municipal and grassroots community stakeholders together with more than 20 channel partners. We will continue to invest in this distribution framework alongside awareness campaigns and operational execution.

Why?Around the world, local merchants are closing at an unprecedented rate and communities are becoming increasingly disconnected. The root cause of the issue is that we have allowed specific verticals to be dominated by a small number of large corporations at the cost of the economic wellbeing of our local economies. Cities were historically groups of economies and social beings that contributed to each other’s well-being. At DigitalTown we believe there is a way to achieve economic growth, but not at the expense of human prosperity in an effort to return cities to their original intention. When communities keep money local, greater opportunities are created, and the economic value of communities increases. When communities win in the Digital Age, everyone can win given their inclusive nature.
How?DigitalTown owns more than 13,000 .city domains creating a unified network of co-operative city portals. The solution that powers these portals is comprised of five key pillars:
- The city as the brand
- Verified online identities
- Secure payment peer to peer and with local merchants
- Shared ownership
- Rewarding civic engagement
What?DigitalTown helps people search, connect, and transact with local merchants and with one another to ensure funds remain in circulation on a local level. We leverage blockchain technology to issue smart contracts to each citizen, in each city, to then share revenue we generate back with them and the wider community. Our model is shared ownership for shared community success as part of our broader global grassroots cooperative movement. Providing ownership turns each user into an advocate building on their preference to support local, but with digital tools to execute on that aspiration and eliminating the friction to achieve it.
Who?Our channel partners around the globe include municipalities, chambers of commerce, destination marketing organizations, local businesses, community leaders, foundations, NGOs, philanthropists, blockchain and crypto enthusiasts, and various civic minded people from a range of backgrounds looking to invest in a more prosperous economic future. All or any of these stakeholders can lead their local movement. In Miami, for example, the movement is being led directly in partnership with the municipality. In Austin, the community is leading the way, and in Nashville, the destination marketing organization is supporting market adoption.
We provide each user a free SmartWallet which hosts:
- Blockchain enabled Verified Digital Identity
- Reputation cataloguing civic participation
- Supports fiat and crypto currencies
- 10 free CityShares providing citizens with an ownership stake in their city
- Lodging: 12% on all reservations
- Retail: 8% on all purchases
- Dining: 8% on all delivery orders
- Services: Referral fee based on vertical
