SmartCity was created with the aim to explore and utilize the power of blockchain technology in solving problems related to the ever-increasing human population. Blockchain technology will be employed in providing smart solutions to such populated-associated problems. With SmartCity, it is easy to have access to a wide range of tools, which planners will find helpful in their desire to model and create smart environments.
The SmartCity SCT platform runs on Smart City Token (SCT), a proprietary technology.
The Population Problem
Over the past 60 years, the world’s population has accelerated massively with an increase from 2.5 billion in 1970 to approximately 8 billion today. There will continue to be a huge increase in population. In fact, the rapid increase has been having a strong effect on the environment, an in a way, damaging both nature and the quality of life for man.
When overcrowding occurs in cities that are poorly planned, there is a high tendency for an increase in the amounts of pollution as well as overstraining natural resources. Unchecked urbanization has led to a colossal waste of natural resources.
Public infrastructure is not spared. From transportation to communication, there will exist a form of over-use of resources. As a result of the population problem, there is the urgent need to come up with a solution.
Smartcity as the Solution
So how exactly is SmartCity the solution needed? Smart City includes a variety of smart solutions packaged as smart homes, smart systems of governance, smart buildings, smart systems of mobility and communication, and smart networks.
SmartCity embodies connected systems, and all these systems are linked to the internet. They are designed to adapt to changing scenarios as guided by autonomous algorithms. This solution is a product of a lot of research and has been selected as the most sustainable solution to curbing overpopulation.
SCT plays a vital part in the solution. It involves the utilization of the blockchain technology to come up the most effective solutions to the population problem.
The blockchain technology will be used as used as an administrative tool by the government to enhance and regulate naturally interconnected areas of service. With blockchain technology, it would be easier to keep records such as the monitoring and controlling traffic as well as the presenting of penalties to those who break traffic regulations.
Aside from being used as an administrative tool, blockchain technology would also be used in planning as well as the conceptualizing of smart cities and other public infrastructure. With SCT, anyone can create an account, through which such a person can conceptualize whole cities and to polish up the ensuing models through crowd-sourced suggestions.
SCT will be explored in systems such as smart waste management, smart parking services, smart governance, and democracy.
Benefits of SmartCity SCT
With SmartCity SCT, citizens can easily provide possible solutions to existing problems in their environment through its decentralized web and mobile applications. The Citizens will be required to supply an Ethereum address so that they can earn tokens for their contribution.
Imagine a nation where there is no barrier to communication between the government and the people! SCT solution eradicates the barrier, giving room for transparency as well as enhancing citizen participation in their welfare.
Integrated into the system is smart messaging notification, a module that permits the sending of the instant notification. With this, it would be easier to report emergency issues such as fires and easier to locate the person in need of help with the aid of triangulation of reporting mobile phones; therefore, there will be a more effective response.
In general, SmartCity SCT has a lot of potentials to transform the future of any nation.
