The Status Quo

 

Reputation isn't portable

Reputation is siloed in individual companies, and in geographically centralized and non-transparent entities such as credit bureaus.

Reputation affects revenue

The sharing economy is poised to hit $40B in revenues, driven by companies in the carsharing, ridesharing, bikesharing, and vacation rental industries. The cost and risk of serving irresponsible users increase the cost of providing services and thereby limiting the potential of the sharing economy.

 
 

Pin solves this.

Pin is a complete protocol built on the blockchain that gives sharing economy platforms and their users a universal, decentralized reputation system. Pin will create a truly borderless reputation and incentive system to unify sharing economy companies around the world.
