A Blockchain-based Housing Rental System

Chen Qi-Long, Ye Rong-Hua, Lin Fei-Long

Abstract

This paper proposes a blockchain-based solution for housing rental system to achieve peer-to-peer sharing of listings information in an intermediary-free manner. The new solution programmatically converts traditional lease agreements into smart lease contracts, improve the efficiency of the leasing process, and store transaction records for the leasing process to provide legal protection for tenants and landlords. The emerging technologies, including smart contract and IPFS (Inter Planetary File System) are exploited in the new system. IPFS is used to store listings information. The Ethereum’s Smart Contract is used to manage the hash of IPFS listings information, and a smart lease contract is written to make the housing rental process traceable and visible.
