Domi is a blockchain-based rental management platform that enables tenants to “passport” their rental data wherever they relocate, and offers a streamlined and secure means for landlords to manage rental contracts with both local and foreign tenants.
We are building a blockchain secured GDPR-compliant platform to allow tenants and landlords alike to securely store and share their information to create a more equitable renting system.
Domi, our product, is a concept for a blockchain-based rental management platform that:
Enables tenants to ‘passport’ their rental data wherever they relocate (locally, nationally or globally);
Offers a streamlined and secure means for landlords to manage rental contracts with both local and foreign tenants;
Enables anonymised reporting of average rental price levels and migration data
Supports possible open data projects; and
Can be integrated in yet-to-come digital identity platforms and digital city/government concepts.
QWhat positive social or environmental do you aim to generate?
Based in Berlin, the city with the fastest growing rental prices in the world, the team behind Domi recognised significant inefficiencies in the way renting occurs globally. Population increase and the changing demographics in cities mean that conventional rental processes are ill equipped to cater for the needs of an ever increasing mobile population and demands modernisation.
Much of the issues in the existing rental market are due to lack of transparency of what is considered a 'fair' rental price, limited ability to easily verify of the identity and rental history of landlords and tenants, and limited inclusivity of rental application process (such that both locals and newcomers to a city can equally participate). Domi seeks to improve accessibility to the rental market by rethinking the way data is managed through the rental cycle to enable greater transparency, security and greater control of selective disclosure of personal data.
