FASTRACK INSTITUTE JOINS OPENEXO, FLUID CHAINS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF THE LOCAL ECOSYSTEM TO CREATE BLOCKCHAIN OPPORTUNITIES FOR MIAMI
July 1, 2020 (Miami, FL) CITIES ARE THE FUTURE. Studies show people identify with the city they live in more than their region or country. It is also cities that will have disproportionately large impact on shaping our future.
Miami, the second largest city in the state of Florida, has a rich and rewarding multicultural identity. It is home to more than 1,400 multinational corporations, and acts as a major center and leader in commerce, culture, finance, tourism, media, international trade, arts, and entertainment. Miami has begun to absorb key entrepreneurial, tech, and creative trends, becoming a hub for startups and innovation attracting core investors and businesses to create positive impact on a global scale.
Accelerating technologies such as IoT, artificial intelligence and blockchain are enabling the digitalization of cities, to impact how work gets done, transform how customers and companies engage and interact and create new digital revenue streams. Cities are modernizing their services and creating the information society of the future. Blockchain could secure and activate digital flows created within cities.
Fastrack Institute (FTI) empowers cities, their leaders, and their citizens, with multidisciplinary teams, to find solutions for critical civic problems. Its primarily focus is on solving urban problems for cities and regions of one million or more citizens, although it also works with smaller cities and communities.
“Fastrack Institute’s expertise in accelerating technology into society is a welcome addition to our existing partnership focusing on better urban futures. FTI joining forces with Openexo, Fluid Chains, UnifyIT, Blockchain Center Miami, Smart Florida and the Miami ecosystem strengthens our ability to experiment with and leverage our decentralized EXOS token and blockchain at the municipal level. As technology bring us a world of abundance, access will triumph over ownership.” Salim Ismail, CEO and Founder of OpenExO.
“We recognized the experience of Fluid Chains and OpenExO tokenizing ecosystems and the relevance of the other partners in the local blockchain ecosystem. We are excited to join the opportunity to explore blockchain opportunities for Miami — supply chain, real estate, healthcare, energy, water management, voting and more — and we aim to broaden the discussion beyond theory into real world experimentation.” Rodrigo Arboleda, CEO Fastrack Institute.
“Now is the time to experiment with Blockchain. In the long term, we look forward to blockchain alternatives for information exchange in the Americas hub. Creating an open blockchain token and platform will be critical for faster and easier development of new smart city exponential applications across multiple sectors in Miami Dade and South Florida.” Cesar Castro, co-founder Fluid Chains.
Fluid Chains did a lot of pioneering work tokenizing ecosystems and introducing companies and communities to blockchain, internationally. Their team led more than a dozen of blockchain projects in USA, Europe, and Latin America, including the development of the EXOS token in the OpenExO community and the Rutanio token in Medellin (Colombia). Rutanio Token is used as means of exchange for services between organizations and individuals.
