OkeyDokey is blockchain based digital payment transaction connected smart door lock system. In other words, it is a smart lock system that automatically opens doors to guest who has paid and verified via the blockchain network. OkeyDokey provides value to customers by relieving the complexities and costs involved in both digital and physical operations of rental process. This whitepaper will go more in depth about how smart connected door lock system that is integrated with blockchain based digital payment transactions provide more productive ways to share assets, and open doors to smarter sharing economy.
The amount of assets accumulated globally is staggering, and idle assets are everywhere because the world is terrible at utilizing them efficiently. For example, privately owned vehicles are in use 4% of the day, where as taxis are in use 50% of the day. Office spaces are in use 20% of the day. From parked cars to accommodations, offices, storage spaces and etc. These untapped value in under-utilized commercial, personal and urban assets such as these is left unnoticed and becoming pervasive.
Many strides have been made over the past decade for the world to witness the rise of a sharing economy; one where people use internet and mobile technologies to access goods and resources provided by their peers. Vacation rental category is the second largest category of lodging behind hotels with an estimated global market size of almost 100 billion USD, and is expected to grow over 170 billion USD. Currently, hotels have market size over 452 billion dollars. Peer-to-peer rental market compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 31% until 2025
OkeyDokey maintains the standard web frontend/smart contract backend structure of a decentralized application. For a decentralized application to connect to the Ethereum network, a user either has to run a ethereum node client side, or connect to a public ethereum node. Nevertheless, requiring a user to run even the lightest version of Ethereum clients locally would be a significant hindrance to the user. It is also not feasible to download several gigabytes of block headers on a mobile device when trying to initiate a simple interaction (e.g., sending a “open lock” command) with our smart devices. Therefore decentralized applications will be connected to a public ethereum node to communicate with the Ethereum mainnet.
OkeyDokey team is closely following the development progress of the official Mist client and other light clients for Ethereum. When it becomes realistically feasible to integrate a fully standalone light Ethereum client OkeyDokey will offer the option to run DApps on a local node.
Blockchain is itself a major enabler of increased efficiency, eliminated risk of hacking, and peer-to-peer rental booking transactions. Smart contracts are self-executing computer codes that automatically carry out functions once a triggering event has taken place. Blockchain secures transaction made through smart contract by its distributed nature providing security to physical objects that are controlled by the smart contracts. The use of smart contracts to carry out transactions autonomously represents a bold evolution that is being actively explored by a few.
For example, let’s assume a smart contract is written between the two parties (A and B). Once the transaction has been made and confirmation is entered into the blockchain, the funds will be released from the A’s wallet address and the smart contract would automatically disburse payment to the B’s wallet address. The confirmation of approval by the booking process is not a triggering event requiring action by any third-party payment processors or intermediaries; the payment is moves directly from guest’s wallet to host’s wallet.
