Our Vision :
We all need a little help sometimes. SmartSwapp aims to connect users through web and mobile-based platforms, enabling the trading of services and a world with no job left undone. You will be able to utilize your individual skills to complete physical or digital tasks in both local and global platforms, for a SmartSwapp credit, which you can then apply to a task of your own. Once a qualified user completes your requested task they will in turn receive this credit, and the SmartSwapp cycle continues. We believe this “pay it forward” concept will foster a balanced exchange of both physical and digital services through a sense of community encouraged by our SmartSwapp platforms.
SmartSwapp aims to achieve its goal by utilizing a sharing economy, which is defined as:
An economic model in which individuals are able to borrow or rent assets owned by someone else. This is most likely to be used when the price of a particular ASSET is high and the asset is not fully utilized all the TIME.
Two words in this definition deserve the most focus:
ASSET & TIME. Imagine if you were able to use your time (your most valuable asset), and be compensated with a universal credit that could be swapped in the future for any service in return. SmartSwapp facilitates this process, allowing everyone to lend or pay forward their time to another — in return for credit within our site.
Swapp Tasks, Save Cash.
Another concept we utilize is collaborative consumption. Within a sharing economy, owners rent out something they are not using (such as a car, a house or bicycle) to a stranger using a peer-to-peer service. A rating or review system is often employed, so people on both sides of the transaction know there’s a certain level of trust and accountability involved. With the popularity of these services, purchasing takes a back seat to renting (or “borrowing”). SmartSwapp allows individuals to pay forward their time to another in return for a credit to be used to accomplish a task from a completely different user in a reciprocated form. This is a give-and-take function within collaborative consumption.
Risks and challenges
A sharing economy only works if contains people who are willing to share something. It requires individuals with needs on one end, and something to provide on the other. SmartSwapp facilitates this give-and-take atmosphere. If you give something, you may earn something back in the future because you deserve it, and likewise, if you take something, be sure to help someone out on the other end. Above all, we need ambitious users who will reciprocate the help in order to make the Swapp Economy work efficiently.
