Borders are arbitrary lines drawn into a landscape to separate competing bands of homo sapiens. Declining empires and dying civilizations of this species often try to enforce those borders by artificial barriers such as fences or walls with little regards to other natural habitats.

Trading virtual borders: Non-fungible tokens are arbitrary references stored on a block chain linking to ordered pieces of digital bits declared as (intellectual) property of a single specimen or an arbitrary legal form.

As we all know, the invisible hand of the market solves everything. Therefore the natural solution to the crisis of our time is simple: Slice up the virtual borders into ownable tiles and cap and trade them.

A platform for trading virtual border tiles on the blockchain. Offical launch and inital release with the US-Mexican border.
