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.
