We are an experiment in the future of cities: decentralized village nodes tied together by a shared culture, economy, and governance structure. ₡ABIN aspires to be a physical manifestation of DAOs, a cooperative labor market for knowledge workers, and perhaps even a decentralized city-state. Our first village node sits on 28-acres of Texas Hill Country (about 45 minutes outside of Austin) where we operate residencies and retreats for independent online creators and DAOs. This physical hub is supported by an online community of web3 builders, thinkers, and dreamers. Together, we are creating tools for decentralized organizations, sharing knowledge and content, and earning money independently online.
