good project ..I think that what the ethereum need ..to be more acceptable for the public .I mean a lot of project use decentralised platform for make our life more centralised ..And it not the soul of the ethereum I think.
build a real small communities which have self-sufficiency...use only gold or ether to connect together .
and they can provide their food , energy that they need and provide some service for the other community or the rest of the world by ethereum . it s a new life style .
I think it will be better to make a small community prototype for you can know the problems which you can have and in the same time make it for public access ..for promote ether and they use of cryptocurrency ...
and maybe you can build a small communitis in different countries with different cultures with diffrents time: ( some community live in the past like medievel , some in the present and some in the futures ) I talk about style of life here but all use ethereum and new technologies.
and you can make web tv can streaming all these communites and promote this .
I m sure that the blockchain and the cryptocurrency are the future ..but The philosophy of the blockchain will be used or the blockchain will be a tool for the banks to centralise more and more our life .
sorry for my weak english but I can't stop myself to write some lines when I see your project.
It's the next boom of human progression like you said . and you can make it better .
