Solution = Carvio Protocol

The Carvio Protocol is a decentralised peer-to-peer ecosystem for the used car marketplace that utilizes blockchain technology to sustain the integrity of vehicle documents and makes the transaction process transparent, convenient and secure. Carvio aims to remove car dealerships in the process of selling and buying used cars by connecting sellers of quality assured cars and verified buyers.

The purchase process is peer-to-peer and governed by smart contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain. The platform has an array of features that have been designed to give consumers confidence, assurance, flexibility, peace of mind and ultimately maximum value.

Modules

Carvio Wallet

The tool for sellers to create and manage car listings smart contracts via elected marketplaces and buyers to create purchase smart contracts outlining ideal vehicles parameters. Both sellers and buyers will also utilise their wallets to sign the Purchase Terms Agreements.

Listing Database

The Carvio listings database will function on the blockchain and will consist of vehicles which have been listed for sale by various sellers directly or via an elected marketplace. Information held on the database will include listings attributions such as inspection reports, warranty providers and escrow agents.

Listing API

The solution for service providers such as inspection companies, finance companies and warranty companies to participate in the Carvio ecosystem. Participants can post data to the blockchain and retrieve relevant information about vehicles, sellers and buyers from the database.

Technology

The Carvio Protocol consists of 3 smart contracts, which, when utilised, make the listing, verification and sale of vehicles transparent. We believe that blockchain technology with smart contracts will revolutionise selling and buying of used cars. The retail automotive industry is not known to be an early adopter of new technology. Carvio Protocol aims to change that, and disrupt the market. Carvio Token is based on the Ethereum ER20 token standard.
