A documentary about the rise of startup societies and network cities filmed in Vitalia pop-up city.
Vitalia is a 2-month pop-up city that will bring together 200 residents passionate about longevity research and digital governance to discuss and build around these ideas.
The project goal is to bootstrap a decentralized city dedicated to longevity research acceleration.
Vitalia was inspired by ZUZALU, the world’s first pop-up city, which hosted 200 residents for two months in Q1 2023 in Montenegro.
The project was envisioned and led by Vitalik Buterin, the billionaire founder of the Ethereum blockchain.
Vitalia City is one of the projects emerging in the Startup Society ecosystem.
Vitalia will be organized around 4 main topics and several residents initiatives.
Vitalia will take place in Próspera, a autonomous city located in Roatán, a Caribbean island in the northern coast of Honduras.
It was established under Honduran ZEDE laws, which aim to replicate the successful governance experiments of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Dubai by granting legal and regulatory autonomy to the administrator of the zone.

What if cities and institutions were built by startups?
Emerging technologies like crypto, blockchains, AI, anti-aging, and startup societies have one thing in common: they pose a threat to long-established monopolies, institutions, and power structures.
No wonder we see an endless flow of attacks, pessimistic news, regulatory pressure, and biased narratives against each one of these innovations.
This is why builders on this new frontier must take control of their narratives and share their side of the story. Otherwise, the narratives will be one-sided.
In a world of culture wars and dramatic power transitions, the truth is often suppressed by mainstream media. Our goal is to shine a light on the reality — that highly aligned internet-native communities have the power to reinvent parallel institutions.
The most important stories in tech innovation are about social transformations.
