Share Everything Lab Pte. Ltd.’s, (SEL) Singapore, is developing a protocol that will decentralize and revolutionize the sharing economy industry. Cozystay, a vacation rental platform that has been operating since 2015, will be the first adopter of SEL’s blockchain-based trust protocols, which will solve critical problems that have plagued the vacation-rental sharing economy so far. SEL’s strategy is to a partner and integrate other sharing economy business verticals to ultimately build a Share Everything community and ecosystem.
Share Everything Lab’s mission is to connect people globally with vacation rentals and related services anytime, anywhere, in a decentralized, fair and transparent manner.
Double booking is a common problem among hosts and vacation rental platforms. Hosts typically list their accommodations on multiple platforms to have greater visibility for potential guests.
Security and fraudulent activity in the vacation rental space have always been an issue. Many centralized intermediary platforms are unwilling to fully guarantee the credit of guests, and will not share their data to reduce the credit risk.
Reviews can be modified by a centralized platform without leaving a trail, and hosts often do not give honest reviews because they fear retaliation or reputation loss.
Existing conventional platforms rely on multiple intermediaries or third-party service providers to complete the full transaction cycle, include ID verification, PMS, and channel management; and those providers charge platform fees, bank fees and foreign exchange fees. The cost can range from 7%-25% of the rental after all the fees are aggregated.
The SHR community along with SHR Protocols and SHR token (the SHR Token) will form a decentralized ecosystem around vacation rental activities, which is created for the community members. We will enable the ability for DApp to be built on top of the ecosystem to provide services to enhance one or more aspects of vacation rental activity in the community. Our partner Cozystay™ (cozystay.com) will rebuild their platform on the SHR ecosystem as the first DApp.
The Token can be used as:
The whitepaper describes Share Everything Lab’s competitive advantage in providing vacation rental ecosystem protocols and utilizing blockchain technology, which will be provided to our partner adopters, Cozystay Holdings Inc. (cozystay.com) and its subsidiary, an existing vacation rental group headquartered in Vancouver, Canada. The key to success for user adoption is in leveraging existing companies that have a relationship with their existing user base of hosts and guests, and have industry partners to develop and grow a community based on our Token ecosystem.

An accredited investor, one must have a net worth of at least $1,000,000, excluding the value of one's primary residence, or have income at least $200,000 each year for the last two years (or $300,000 combined income if married).

The Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (SAFT) is an instrument and open-source framework for token sales. The SAFT is the agreement used by most companies for investments.
While the SAFT has been extensively reviewed by multiple legal teams, we strongly recommend you consult with your own legal, investment, tax, accounting, and other advisors, to determine the potential benefits, burdens, risks, and other consequences of such a transaction.
A qualified purchaser is a much greater requirement than an accredited investor and a qualified client. To paraphrase the requirements under Section 2(a)(51) of the Investment Company Act, a "qualified purchaser" means: a person not less than $5 million in investments.
