Bringing Blockchain Technology to the Home Services Industry

Invest in Dashing

The Dashing ecosystem consists of the Dashing Platform (Dashing) and the GetDashing Application (GetDashing). The Dashing Platform plans to leverage blockchain technology to automate user verification, reputation management, payment processing, contract life-cycle management, and dispute arbitration.  Dashing plans to use blockchain technology to enable automation, which can increases efficiency, transparency, and trust while reducing costs.  Development of the Dashing platform is in alpha stage with blockchain code testing on our internal test Ethereum network.


The GetDashing Application (iOS, Android, Web app) will be built on the Dashing Platform and will offer a full-service experience for the home services market. GetDashing will manage all aspects of projects that need to be done around the home and will benefit from the automation provided by the underlying Dashing Platform.  GetDashing has a functioning consumer-facing application undergoing internal testing and intends to move to a public beta.


Dashing plans to create an ecosystem of accountability in which both customers and service providers benefit from transparent, automated, and secure home services transactions with verified providers and a fair, crowdsourced resolution to their problems.

1.   No longer do consumers have to rely on word of mouth or iffy online reviews when hiring help for home improvement projects. Contractors no longer have to worry about collecting payments or chargebacks . 

 

2.   Dashing uses Ethereum smart contracts to automate the entire contract life cycle so everyone can have less stress throughout the entire process.

 

3.   Dashing tokens are at the heart of these transactions and allow the use of a smart contract design to automate all aspects of the transaction from customer and vendor onboarding and vetting, dispute resolution, review verification and moderation of the payment cycle.

Dashing believes the community deserves to know the true outcomes of all transactions and will benefit from simplification of the process and cost reductions.

The Offering

Investment


$1.20/ Dashing Tokens│When you invest you are betting the company’s future equity value will exceed $13M.


Non-Voting Common Stock (designated as Dashing Tokens)

Description: Dashing Tokens will represent a single share of Non-Voting Common Stock, and  will be issued in the form of electronic tokens issued via ERC-20 Smart Contracts (if and when available).


The right to tokens is contingent upon the successful development of such Tokens and to the extent applicable, the blockchain upon which they function.  There is no guarantee that successful development will ever occur.

The Timing

The broader home services market in the United States is estimated at more than $400 billion per year.

 

Investing in Dashing means investing in blockchain technology to automate user verification, reputation management, payment processing, contract life cycle, and dispute arbitration for countless types of businesses.

 

We believe the public is craving authentic, online reviews that cannot be manipulated. If you need a plumber, there are dozens of online review services that play “matchmaker” and link you to service providers. 


However, we believe that, in many ways, existing platforms are solving non-problems due to business model inertia. The leading market competitors have essentially created a digital version of the Yellow Pages: a centralized directory of contact information sorted by type of service provider. In our opinion, they have simply added some reviews and outcome management mechanisms.

This approach is a fundamental misunderstanding of what we think a large, growing group of consumers need and desire. They do not lack the ability to use what is essentially a digital Rolodex. Instead, we believe they want turnkey services in lifestyle management. 


The desired product is no longer the provision of the underlying service, but rather the knowledge of what to do when to do it, and how to do it. Consumers want help managing the entire process: identifying what needs to be done (project-specific knowledge), knowing how best to complete it, scheduling appointments, managing the project, verifying the completed work, processing payments, reviewing the vendor, resolving disputes, and anticipating future projects. 


We believe companies that succeed in providing these services will be building more complex, multi-touch relationships rather than merely providing transactional referrals and a fancier version of the Yellow Pages.

The Small Business Association estimates that there are 27.9 million small businesses in America. The home services industry is just the beginning of how Dashing technology can be used. When using the GetDashing app, users can pay for services with dashing tokens, other cryptocurrency, or standard payment methods such as credit cards.

Secure and Fair

Existing platforms such as Angie’s List, Thumbtack, and Home Advisor operate with a pay-to-bid business model. Vendors are required to pay to place a bid on any project on which they want to work. We believe this business model leaves customers and vendors vulnerable. The vendors are rewarded for underbidding, and customers are required to blindly trust the lowest bidder. We believe this business model is outdated, inefficient, and unfair to everyone involved. 


Dashing wants to bring transparency, security, and, most importantly, fairness to the home services industry through the use of blockchain technology.   

Trust management is a winning component. The powerhouse combination of blockchain technology and smart contracts means fairness can be objectively crowdsourced, thanks to decentralized arbitration.

Dashing: Teaming With Success

The Dashing team has extensive technical ability as well as a proven record of customer acquisition and sales success. We have a leadership team experienced in designing, creating, and monetizing cutting edge products.


Co-Founder and COO Richard Sherman is an expert in large-scale contract negotiations with complex and long-term sales processes. His former clients include Nike, Microsoft, Amazon, Expedia, Honeywell, HTC, Weyerhaeuser, Russell Investments, and Starbucks. 

 

Richard is a graduate of Dartmouth College with a double major and a minor and was awarded the Mellon Undergraduate Fellowship and a Dickey Foundation fellowship. 

Alaxander left college at the age of 18 to start his first company. Alaxander is an expert in encryption and has developed and deployed secure networks around the world. He has deployed machine learning at scale to achieve some of the lowest fraud rates in the industry for payment processing and customer verification in high-risk transactions.

 

Alaxander’s last company included two Fortune 500 companies as clients.


The potential of blockchain technology and inefficiencies in the home services industry offer an opportunity for a company that can deliver a home services platform that the marketplace can trust. 

 

It's a perfect match: the validated safety of blockchain technology and one of the most dynamic, growing industries—home services. And we are offering you the opportunity to invest.

Our Mission

Objective trust analysis requires a transparent and immutable record of all actual transactions. Without readily available, verifiable, objective data for independent analysis, the market suffers from misinformation since market participants maximize their financial and reputational outcomes rather than the transparency of platform transactions, both positive and negative. Currently, competitors provide subjective summaries of transactions that are distilled to maximize the platform’s objectives. In essence, the platforms are asking consumers to trust their service even though it is based on criteria that they control, knowing they have a strong incentive to exclude or minimize negative experiences.  Dashing seeks to change this and provide verifiable, immutable data for the marketplace.

Why Home Services?

According to "The US Home Service Market: Size, Trends & Forecasts (2017–2021)", home services is expected to grow at a significant rate. Yet the market faces certain challenges such as security concerns and the decreasing value of word of mouth. Dashing addresses those concerns.
