Based on the philosophy of liberty, with roots tracing back to the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu, and further back to the higher-law concepts of the Greeks and the Israelites. A new society is situated in the wilderness and governed by cryptographic protocols. A biblical haven that can lead the way to new-forms of cities and communal governance!

The autonomous city recently banned all kinds of cash and switched over to cryptocurrency CITY Coin as the only medium of exchange. The city is inviting people from all over the world to purchase land in the city and contribute to this initiative.
