An estimated 70% of new value created in the economy over the next decade will be based on digitally enabled platform business models. We have an opportunity to impact lives globally, and a duty to bring free markets online to the world.

  • In Web2, we connect to huge corporate clouds with centralised identities, hand our data away and get very little value back. The average person has 100 log-ins, who controls all your data? When you buy a movie, can you resell it like a physical copy?
  • In Web3, we get financial independence and data rights (NFTs) through smart contracts.
  • In Web5, we adopt decentralised identities and personal clouds where we can build our own data up, control access, and sync and trade both rights and data directly with each other.
Web 3 + 5 = SmartWeb. Elacity is operational and the world's first SmartWeb platform. We may be small today, but our vision is not. Our goal is to let you capture all the value you create online and offer income streams from it. We are experts in data ownership and are here to disrupt. Join us!

Bella

Bella represents the spirit of Elacity and is our mascot. Bella was rescued and brought to Elacity to be nurtured into a fully-fledged adult. Her mother was taken by Web2 poachers for her ivory.
There are 500 Bella NFTs within Elacity, each unique and rare, representing both scarce art (with IP rights being held by the owner) and VIP keys to the city. You can trade Bellas here and get 28% off on GPU processing time in Elacity as the first utility offering.
