RxEAL solves the real problem

A security deposit is a measure used to cover any losses suffered by the rental property, however, handing over the funds to the other party for storage is an issue of trust. The paying party cannot be certain that the deposit has been stored safely and that the other party will return the deposit. Furthermore, at the end of the agreement, it can take weeks for a lessee to receive their deposit back, and there is a potential for disputes to be resolved in courts, taking up even longer periods of time.

RxEAL is a solution for eliminating a growing number of unfair withholdings of funds from the security deposit at the end of the rental agreement by providing an interface to engage in these activities using smart contracts requiring no technical knowledge. Not only does RxEAL solve the aforementioned problem, it also provides much faster deposit return rates and cost effectiveness compared to current off-chain solutions.

RxEAL replaces costs with value

The number of people involved in real estate, car and other rental transactions is greater than ever. The favorable conditions for travelers, emerging economies and the increasing flow of human resources across borders are causing a rapid growth in the number of transactions.

Global real estate industry had total revenues of 3.5 trillion USD in 2016. In United States alone, the total number of renters in October 2017 was almost 112 million while the number of landlords was almost 23 million.

6 billion EUR are annually lost due to disputes in UK alone. By solving the issue of trust, we are creating the added value for all involved parties, therefore our service results in a valuable improvement for the world’s largest markets.

How does RxEAL work?

9d2fa566ccd094a.png

By combining blockchain technology with everyday rental transactions we are able to build an entirely new way for users with no technical knowledge to take advantage of the benefits offered by smart contracts.

RxEAL is an interface designed to create and deploy smart contracts for rental security deposit storage on the Ethereum blockchain in the form of cryptocurrencies providing the ability to interact with the smart contract during the course of the agreement. Additionally, RxEAL provides a decentralized dispute resolution process ensuring the fair and timely security deposit distribution at the end of the contract term.

Underlying technology

3c64ce7f66b8d9f.png

The RxEAL project utilizes Ethereum blockchain technology in order to execute the sophisticated logic in smart contracts on the nodes within the network.

The Ethereum network is currently the most advanced smart contract platform with an outstanding team behind it, as well as an extensive library of development frameworks and a growing user base. It is crucial for our platform users to have the highest level of trust in the underlying network and the knowledge that the project is being constantly improved.

Deposits are stored inside the smart contracts and are irrevocable by any party unilaterally unless a previously programmed condition both parties agreed on is triggered by a smart contract. This approach eliminates the possibility of breaching the contract terms.

RxEAL does not store deposits nor does it have any access to the funds kept in smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. RxEAL is a platform that provides users with an interface to generate and deploy the smart contracts with no technical knowledge required.

To maintain the value of the deposit relative to fiat currency RxEAL in cooperation with Maker Dao will offer users to store their deposits inside a smart contract in the form of ERC20 standard compliant Dai Stablecoin. Dai is a cryptocurrency that maintains stable value against USD. Ultimately, this option will ensure that upon contract termination users will receive the amount of ETH relative to the value of the USD that was initially deposited.

Considering that the volatility of cryptocurrency is one of the main factors that discourages people from using it, the implementation of Dai deposits would notably expand the client base

Business model

The RxEAL business model is fee based where lessors use the RXL to pay for the service. We believe that our service provides a competitive advantage to lessors by allowing to offer the added value product to those who are seeking protection from unfair security deposit withholding and faster transactions, therefore lessees are more likely to choose lessor’s rental product, while lessors would be willing to pay a small premium fee for such service.

Proposed rates are as follows: 2.3% for 0-1500 USD equivalent deposits (minimum 4USD); 34.5 USD + 0.3% for 1500.01+ USD equivalent deposits; fixed arbitrator commission of 9 USD equivalent in case of the dispute.

Token economics

RXL token is a crucial element of RxEAL platform and ensures flexibility and control over the project growth. Payments for services, payouts to arbitrators and other interactions with platform will be exclusively conducted in RXL.

RXL is a fully ERC20 compliant token. The ERC20 standard ensures seamless interaction with decentralized applications and smart contracts on the Ethereum ecosystem and guarantees a fixed standard of security.

The underlying economic strength of the RXL token is its utility. The RXL token allows exclusive access to services provided by the RxEAL platform, thus making it a utility token, rather than a speculative instrument.

The value of the RXL token directly correlates with the success of the RxEAL platform. Given the fixed token supply, increase in RxEAL service usage directly leads to an appreciation of the token value by virtue of it being a unit required for paying the service fee of the platform.

Using the proposed service pricing model and the initial amount of circulating tokens the following token demand forecast can be projected (based on daily transaction count assuming 500 USD average deposit):

Token sale and distribution

During the token sale process, we will offer a total of 56% of RXL tokens. This number consists of 6% pre-sale and 50% main sale tokens. The unsold tokens from pre-sale will be transferred to the main sale, therefore, the total number of offered tokens will equal 56% in all scenarios.
