The US home services market is estimated to be worth more than $400 billion annually and is highly fragmented with tens of thousands of small, local, and regional companies competing for customers. 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 We believe this business model is outdated, inefficient, and unfair to everyone involved.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.
