Zilla converts transaction-deficient and opportunity-poor environments into transaction-abundant and opportunity rich environments by operationalizing three paradigmatic shifts:

  • From land “ownership” to the definition of context-sensitive land-based rights

  • From a two-dimensional land “record” to multi-layered land-based attributes

  • From centralized land “registry” to distributed ledger of land-based attributes and context-sensitive transactions

A full deployment of Zilla systems consists of four operational dimensions

  • Acquisition of data by animate (human) and inanimate (sensors, satellites, scanners) means

  • Organization of data through relational models (layers)

  • Rationalization of data through hierarchy of precedence (verification)

  • Conversion of data into actionable applications (connecting identity to rights and opportunity; high-frequency or real-time contracts)

Ongoing advances in distributed technologies of communication (mobility), data sharing (Internet), and data validation (Blockchain) permit a finite investment of philanthropic capital to accomplish discontinuous, dramatic, and indefinitely sustainable progress in this domain. The deployment of a platform for land-based opportunity creation at scale not only will increase financial inclusion, but also will reduce gender inequity and enhance environmental sustainability.

What is more, Zilla itself creates employment opportunities at a large-scale, seeding a global, public-private, digital economy re-build—a digital Marshall Plan—directly addressing the challenge of inequitable access to digital opportunity. This system provides a foundation for high-value job creation and associated financial enablers.
