Layer Protocol

TBA
5,366 Views
The decentralized reputation protocol for the global sharing economy, built on the blockchain.

Even the bigger players in the sharing economy today have no way of knowing a new user's value before their first transaction. Bad actors moving from one service to the next one are a huge expense in the industry, and these costs get passed on to other users through increased fees.

There is currently no way of sharing user reputation data between asset sharing companies. Why would Airbnb even give away their user reputation data to competitors or let's say Uber? While more than 72% of the US population has used at least one sharing economy service, the number for Uber or Airbnb is less than 25%, meaning there is a vast amount of reputation data shared on all sides, and it can drive down operation costs significantly.

Layer Protocol aims to resolve the issue, and will first be adopted by Spin, a stationless e-scooter platform. Live in over 50 markets in the US with over 1M rides in less than a year. Layer Protocol will be Spin's base layer for reputation and rewards. Users will be rewarded when their reputation increases.
