Why do we need SWT to transact on the Boardwalk?

The Swarm City Tokens were minted with the sole purpose of fueling an ecosystem and being a means of transferring value. We built this City on the blockchain with the intent to create a unified network of actively invested users without using molds created for business models that aren't aligned with our mission.

The token is a representation of the brand itself and it reflects the reputation of the whole community, by way of reflecting the current perceived market value of it's "hodlers". It binds the community together and incentivizes a system in which people can create their own value within any context.
