Since June, South Burlington, Vt. has been partnering with Consensus, a Toronto-based tech firm, on a new smartphone application that allows South Burlington to poll its residents on public policy questions.
The city has another motive: to demonstrate that South Burlington is welcoming to blockchain companies. …. The state has similarly sought to court the industry with a 2018 law allowing corporate structures attractive to such technology companies. South Burlington has been working with another tech firm, Silicon Valley-based Propy, on a blockchain system that helps record and manage real estate transactions.
