A Cultural Haven and Futuristic Exploration
Dragon City is a virtual city built on the decentralized virtual reality platform Decentraland. This vibrant community district materialized through the collaborative efforts of numerous individuals worldwide, with a generous contribution of 3,575 parcels of LAND. Today, Dragon City stands tall as one of Decentraland's premier and highly coveted communities, offering a unique and sought-after virtual experience.Positioned as a distinguished cultural hub within the expansive landscape of Decentraland, Dragon City holds steadfast in its commitment to the celebration and preservation of Chinese traditional culture. Beyond this, Dragon City boldly ventures into uncharted territories, dedicating itself to the visionary exploration of the future of human society. In essence, Dragon City serves as not just a virtual space but a dynamic intersection where culture, tradition, and innovation converge, creating a rich and immersive experience for its diverse global community.
Ancient Wisdom and Modern Architecture
The architectural blueprint of Dragon City draws its inspiration from the ancient Chinese philosophy of 'Wuji generates Taiji, Taiji generates two complementary forces, two complementary forces generate four aggregates, four aggregates generate eight trigrams.' This profound concept aligns harmoniously with the binary principles of contemporary computing, wherein Taiji's Yin embodies '0,' and its Yang counterpart embodies '1.'Embracing this philosophy, the 3,575 parcels of LAND are meticulously organized into a structured system with three distinct tiers: Wuji-Taiji, Four Symbols, and Bagua. These tiers seamlessly weave together in ten major areas, offering a versatile and engaging space where individuals can partake in a multitude of activities, be it for business, entertainment, social interaction, and more. Dragon City represents a union of ancient wisdom and modern technology, a dynamic metaverse that bridges cultural traditions and cutting-edge innovation.
Embark on the Infinite
The future is synonymous with limitless horizons, and Dragon City, also known as Dragon City (Genesis), marks only the initial step on our extraordinary journey. As we progress with our visionary projects, an entire constellation of cities will emerge within the Dragon universe. Each of these virtual realms will serve as a canvas for our shared creativity, reshaping the very fabric of our reality.In close collaboration with our vibrant community, we hold the conviction that these virtual landscapes will enrich the lives of countless individuals, bridging the gap between the virtual and the tangible. They will become enchanted domains where reality and virtuality converge, repositories transcending the constraints of time and space, and above all, a welcoming second home for all who dare to dream and explore.

Dragon DAO is a decentralized autonomous organization that stewards the Dragon Metaverse. CHI is the governance token of DragonDAO.
In the crypto-economic design, DragonDAO will hold 48% of the genesis supply of CHI tokens. It will be split equally into three parts, each accounting for 16%:
• Dragon X, a Dragon community treasury vault;
• Dragon Y, as an incentive to build the metaverse system called "MeFi";
• Dragon Z, for future development, to build a system combined with MeFi and NFT.
DragonDAO will be officially launched on-chain after the first DAO constitution is voted on by the community members.
What is Dragon X?
Dragon X is one of the most important components of Dragon DAO. The concept of design is to create the Treasury of Dragon DAO. The mission is to secure capital operation for the long term and minimize risk at the market level or other unpredictable risks at the same time to support the growth and development of Dragon City.
In a nutshell, Dragon X is to explore the huge potentials of the Metaverse for Dragon City. Our goal is to build a community-governed fund to foster a community in the Metaverse.
Purpose of Dragon X
• A fund to support Dragon development;
• Support the growth of the Dragon Ecosystem;
• Grants to foster the Metaverse startups;
• Future contributor incentives;
• Protocol mergers & talent acquisitions;
• Co-operation across the ecosystem in the Metaverse;
• Stabilize CHI.
Where does the fund come from?
• 16% of the total genesis supply of CHI tokens;
• Reinvestment to potential projects in the Metaverse;
• Income from the community projects eg. NFT platform, MeFi...
• and more...
When to start?
One year later after the launch of the $CHI token and Dragon DAO, to be decided by the community.
Who controls Dragon X‘s fund?
Dragon X, like Dragon DAO itself, will finally hand out to the community in the development of the second stage. Every holder of $CHI can vote on what the upcoming DAO does. Before the DAO governance system starts, the team will hold this multi-sig wallet.
What is Dragon Y?
Dragon Y's goal is to design a Metaverse DeFi-NFT system, an incentive to innovate the long-term metaverse system building for the CHI holders.
Where do we Yield the values?
In our minds, there are huge opportunities for the metaverse space in the coming future. What Dragon Y would do include:
• Build a Lend/Borrow platform;
• Reward the participants of the Metaverse system;
• and more...
When does Dragon Y launch?
Next phrase, no timeline, at least one year after Dragon DAO governance token's launch. It totally depends on the progress of development.
Dragon Z (meaning Zeitgeist) will be the important component design of Dragon Metaverse. We think the Metaverse is still in its infancy. It has huge potential for changing our society by developing public goods. This will be in our long-term planning.
The details of Dragon Z are still under research. More information will be provided as soon as we are ready. Dragon Z would be the third stage in the roadmap.
Communities > Companies in a TRUE Metaverse
We believe that a true metaverse should be collectively created and owned by its builders, which means that it should not have a centralized power structure. All stakeholders ought to have the right to participate in value creation and value distribution.
DAO's trustless governance structure allows everyone, not just a few people, to participate in the decision-making process. The openness, transparency, and immutability of smart contracts can greatly reduce the need for intermediaries that might compromise decentralized decision-making.
In addition, it allows for greater respect for human spontaneity and self-agency, where each person's value judgment determines why and how she contributed to a community and what corresponding rewards she expected to receive. It is driven by highly aligned values, rather than traditional top-down corporate rules, that people from different backgrounds and geographies connect and collaborate with each other in a community.
DAO has the potential to connect the increasingly atomized individuals and build a more open and equal metaverse in the future.
Reconstructing Civic Life for Ourselves
When we participate in civic life, we need to be part of a collective and community that is involved in the governance of public affairs, working together towards a common goal and making an ideal city possible.
In order to build a city we all want to live in, members of the community need to raise issues openly, make sure everyone is informed, and give others the right to voice their opinions, participate in the voting process, and engage with fellow citizens in respectful and positive ways.
While in reality, most of us may not have the opportunity or ability to be civically engaged in society. We are either too busy with daily life to devote enough time to volunteer activities, or we have become so accustomed to passively accepting the environment we are in that we gradually lose confidence in reshaping our city with others.
By running a DAO, we have the opportunity to learn how to engage and refine our civic life. We hope it would finally influence how we react to and participate in real-life public affairs.
An Experiment to Optimize Human Coordination
We have witnessed the application of DAO in some excellent projects such as Moloch and Gitcoin, which have largely revolutionized the coordination model and provided direction for us to build a community dedicated to public goods. DAO is still in its infancy. We still need a lot of research, Trial and error, and there will be many possibilities waiting to be explored.
How It Works
Dragon DAO Constitution will clarify some of the basic principles of DAO governance and the basic rights of the stakeholders, participants, and the general membership of the Dragon community. It will be initiated and drafted by the community, for the community. The community members will vote on its adoption as the principle of Dragon DAO. It's our constitution of Dragon Metaverse.
The concept of Quadratic Voting (QV) comes from the 2018 book Radical Markets by Eric Posner, a Professor of Law at the University of Chicago, and Glen Weyl, senior principal researcher at Microsoft. It is a collective decision-making procedure that is a cross between one-dollar-one-vote and one-person-one-vote schemes. Voters are able to express not only their preferences but also the extent of their preferences through the allocation of votes. This type of voting solves the "free ride" problem and ensures that individual interests and the maximization of social welfare are aligned.
A QV system will be embedded into DAO governance in the future, to make collective decision-making more equitable for the public good.

A Metaverse Token
CHI token, designed as a utility token, is firstly introduced into DragonDAO to be acted as a governance token. It follows the ERC-20 standard with a capped supply of 10 billion. With our long-term vision, it will unleash its potential in the future to power a decentralized metaverse. CHI also acts as the fundamental infrastructure design of Dragon Metaverse, a shared metaverse space for the Dragon Community built on the Dragon Cites.
CHI cannot be treated as any money or financial currency or valued security in the real world and the real economics, CHI is just a governance tool for our ongoing building of open metaverse: Dragon
CHI, being created to support our long-term vision, is with a capped supply of 10 billion.
