LocalPort was developed out of a realization that local communities have an abundance of human and material capital that remains largely dormant... literally untapped due to limitations of available cash (fiat currency).
In our live trials and proof-of-concept, we've demonstrated an ability to "hack the local economy" to unlock latent resources and potential. We discovered a little-known mechanism for activating and transmuting that untapped potential into pure progress.
Early trials demonstrated our ability to affect a measurable impact on local economic indicators through the introduction of an analog (offline) token or coupon.
FINDINGS: LocalPort enables communities to do more with what they already have.
We've fully validated the idea that a local rewards token can: 1) increase community engagement, volunteerism, and trade; 2) enhance individual purchasing power; and 3) drive new high-value transactions to local business.
The best way to predict the future is to create it.
