NEW YORK, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- What if you could leave your mark on your city? And all it took was nominating a worthy name or cause like The Giving Pledge to be the official virtual name of a public property such as Wall Street? What if nominations could be simply adopted by cities online? Virtual names would complement traditional names instead of replacing them, and no physical signs or city bylaws would be required.
Now what if it could all happen through a single platform? The result would be the emergence of an exclusive virtual layer running on top of the physical world, containing all the worthiest virtual names. What if this layer could help cities define a common virtual reality for everyone?
For those wondering, this ambitious platform is ready and on the brink of public release. Nominator.com, the tech startup behind the vision, is setting out to help cities transition into the upcoming age of augmented and virtual reality. They believe virtual names will be the way for cities to stay current and connected with today's generation. Cities can also use virtual naming to affirm their values and aspirations and influence society in a positive and lasting way.
You'll have a chance to meet the founding team at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, on May 15, 2017. They'll be showcasing their work to the tech community and recruiting an initial wave of beta testers.
Their first sample nomination features The Giving Pledge, an appeal to the super wealthy to give away the majority of their wealth to charitable causes. The Giving Pledge has already amassed a list of over 150 signatories and more than half a trillion dollars in pledges. A quick view of the campaign video to virtually name Wall Street and it's clear where this new and disruptive platform is headed.
