AERO Token: Moving the Sharing Economy to the Blockchain — Starting with Airspace

A blockchain-based sharing economy would reveal available supply (i.e. host availability) and demand data, while radically increasing consumer choice and host income opportunities.

“While centralized intermediaries can and certainly do provide material value to the sharing economy, serving as nothing more than digital gatekeepers, deliberately obfuscating supply and demand data, isn’t a component of their long-term value proposition.”

Furthermore, data-siloing creates a dependence on the intermediary service provider for both hosts and users, limiting consumer choice and stymieing potential income for hosts. As each sharing economy company (ex. ride sharing service) develops and expands their market presence unilaterally, it’s not simply a matter of hosts and users alternating between intermediary service providers to successfully partake in the sharing economy (ex. reserve a ride or pick up a passenger).

In a Peer-to-Peer (or Peer-to-Blockchain) sharing economy, hosts would be able to go directly to the blockchain to notify all network participants and interested parties that their asset or service is available. Therefore, decentralized applications (“dApps”) can eliminate the dependence on relying on any one organization to match potential hosts and service providers based on siloed data.

Airspace is an Under-Utilized, Valuable and Ideal Asset for the Sharing Economy

In the Sharing Economy, hosts typically incur “Additional Costs” for sharing their assets. There are various forms of additional costs that can manifest themselves in a number of ways depending on the context and nature of the asset shared. From housecleaning, to vehicle maintenance, the severity of the additional costs varies from the type of assets shared to specific transactions (ex. sharing economy participants that damage host property). Moreover, material non-monetary additional risks are inherently present to all persons that engage in the sharing economy. There are non-trivial liability concerns and physical safety considerations that should not be ignored when allowing other parties to access one’s home, vehicle or property.
