How can city governments use data to improve their city?
Co-founder and CEO Gregory Johnson showcased the latest from DataGovs, a data governance company currently working with Venture Miami and the City of Miami.
“We help organizations apply data infrastructure.”
— Gregory Johnson explains what DataGovs does
DataGovs connects, automates, and monitors data infrastructure. The project is emerging as the data layer between blockchain-based data and CityCoins-based utility.
“Our utility for CityCoins is making it easier for people who hold CItyCoins to access and report on a city’s issues while being rewarded for it. ”
— Gregory Johnson explains how DataGovs builds utility for CityCoins
From connecting users to an immutable, transparent record of a city’s issues to incentivizing solutions to them, DataGovs envisions new standards and models emerging.
“This is how we see CityCoins being utilized for a real purpose.”

Can crypto solve America’s housing crisis?
Mel Anic shared the latest from Theopetra, a web3 real estate lab with a novel approach to fixing the landlord-renter relationship.
“If trends continue, we will be past 2008 debt-to-income ratios within 5-7 years in California. To me, we need to solve this immediately. Otherwise, interesting things will happen.”
— Mel Anic explains the problem Theopetra aims to solve
Inspired by CityCoins model, Theopetra’s uses its yield to ensure that rent only raises by 1%, as opposed to the double-digit averages some cities see.
“This could be an income generator for the city while doing social good.”
— Mel Anic explains why cities should partner with Theopetra
In addition to potentially offloading the challenge of affordable housing from a civic government, Theopetra promises to bring transparency to community work. Where did the money go? Who were the middlemen involved?
