Developing the USN - Universal Sharing Network
66% of the world is willing to share their assets for financial gain.
That figure is as high as 94% in China. The millennials'philosophy is fast becoming "If you can rent it, why own it".
The sharing economy’s story doesn’t end with taxis and vacation rentals. It’s expanding to touch consumers and companies, employees and employers. We believe that Airbnb's will soon become fully automated, and small business owners will prefer to rent work spaces on demand rather than commit to complex leases.
Anywhere where there are underused assets such as temporarily vacant apartments, office space or machinery, there is an untapped opportunity to make a profit.

Tomorrow's Internet of ValueWe're currently developing the Universal Sharing Network (USN), an open source infrastructure on which blockchain applications modules can be deployed. Our Open Platform will make it easy for 3rd parties including manufacturer, small or large, to onboard any object to the USN without having to 'ask permission'.
