www.emrals.com (created and won an award at CodeAcrossNYC) is a crowdsourced civictech website that empowers ordinary citizens to report, verify, and clean the city with reduced wait time. The online/offline community allows people to report problems from poop to graffiti and create jackpots to incentivize neighbors to solve their problems. The Emrals community gains game points and crypto-currency of Emrals that can be converted into actual currency, and participants perform tasks to gain points that allow them to post a dirt alert or clean it up.
Upon signup, users get one free emral, which is the currency of the site. They can assign emrals to dirt alerts to show how vitally a service is needed. If you want someone to dig your car out of the snow, you might be willing to part with 100 Emrals.
We also have several interactive trash cans that reward you for cleaning up the area. http://motherboard.vice.com/read/this-solar-powered-trash-can-mines-cryptocurrency-when-you-feed-it-garbage
Please vote for Emrals!
