Decentralized sharing economy protocol

using the ETHEREUM blockchain

  • Open source and community managed
  • No data reselling
  • No deplatforming
  • No exploitation of monopoly position

Sharing economy platforms are broken

The sharing economy is booming.
But power is skewed towards the
platforms such as Uber, AirBnB
and Upwork. It’s hard for
competitors to attract buyers and
sellers. Leading sharing economy
marketplaces become monopolies,
an advantage they exploit to
extract a large portion of value.

Why build on TimeCoinProtocol

TimeCoinProtocol provides a platform on which to build
a fairer sharing economy.

01

Easier development with
TimeCoinProtocol ADK

02

TimeCoinProtocol architecture

Decentralized Applications

Decentralized applications (dApps) through which the sharing economy is realized via the peer-to-peer trading of products and services.

Application Common Libraries

The TCP Application Common Libraries are a JavaScript-based catalog of developer tools which are openly accessible to all TCP developers.

Open Source Search Server

The Open Source Search Server provides a search function will allow users to search for products and services in TCP dApps.

TimeCoinProtocol

The protocol offers a number of functions including account management, dApp browsing, product or service transactions, settlement, scoring, and token reward allocation. The protocol acts as an intermediary system which facilitates interactions between dApps, IPFS and the ETHEREUM blockchain as well as external arbitrators and oracles where necessary.

InterPlanetary File System (IPFS)

A distributed storage facility called the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) which holds the product and service information for dApps.

ETHEREUM Blockchain

The ETHEREUM blockchain upon which TCP runs.

Reward mechanism

A portion of TimeCoin tokens earned and transaction fees
are redistributed to users of the platform.

Rewards are proportionate to contributes regardless of
contribution type. i.e. loyalty, numbers of transactions,
size of transactions, growing the network, supporting
the operation of the network.

A sharing economy service platform, TimeTicket

TimeTicket’s Sales have increased more than thirtyfold in the past three years and half. The platform has now reached approximately 250,000 active users and annual transactions in excess of 12,000. This makes TimeTicket one of the fastest growing sharing economy platforms currently operating. TimeTicket is currently only available in Japanese, but as TimeTicket expands to new markets TimeTicket’s conversion rate, repeat user rate, and the average lifetime of active users is comparable to some of the world’s most successful online companies. During 2018, 6% of users continued to trade three months after their first use of a TimeTicket service. This is on par with the activity of repeat purchasers on successful e-commerce websites such as Amazon, Flipkart, and eBay.
