Beenest is the first decentralized home-sharing network built on top of a set of Bee Protocols
that connects hosts with guests without taking any commissions. The Beenest dApp and the
Bee Protocols are powered by the ERC-20 utility token called the BEE token. The Bee Protocols
are open Ethereum protocols that can power other future sharing economy dApps. These
protocols provide the Beenest network with three essential systems:
1. A secure payment system that allows two authenticated P2P entities to send and
receive money that gets held in Bee Tokens until after a successful exchange of services
between the two entities.
2. A decentralized arbitration system that resolves user disputes , providing positive
incentives to grow a network of genuine arbiters and negative incentives to deter
3. A reputation system that couples a valid identity, which is obtained by a trusted digital
fingerprint protocol on the Ethereum blockchain, with a rating determined by
transparent, immutable review and scoring interchange between P2P entities (such as
guests and hosts).
This whitepaper expounds upon the Beenest platform and the Bee Protocols. We aim to offer
transparency into our token metrics and a future roadmap of development and expansion. We
will discuss how Beenest creates and preserves value for hosts, guests, arbiters, and
developers within a decentralized autonomous organization and how our decentralized model
offers distinct advantages over the predominant, centralized home sharing model.
