Smart Cities Need Smarter Citizens: Millennials Should Take The Lead Now
Over $14.85 billion have been spent on smart city initiatives in 2015. By 2020, the figure is expected to double and reach $34.45 billion.
According to a report by BitcoinNews, over half of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and this number is expected to increase to 66% by 2050.
