My current personal project is making a system for the shared use and ownership of a physical item, in particular housing. It is being written in Solidity and will run on the Ethereum network.
There are lots of projects/companies working on fractional ownership of housing and other assets, but they all just aim to make it easier to invest. none of them have a governance model built in to actually manage the use of a shared resource.
More detailed description of project can be found here
If anyone has comments, questions, or similar projects to show me, that would be greatly appreciated. I havent shown this to many people yet and many details still need to be fleshed out
@machado the main advantages
1. it allows the quick and cheap transition of small percentages of property value.
2. Each group can create and change the rules of their collective agreement through voting.
I'm imaging a system where each house becomes its own little ecosystem. Where the people currently living in it are slowly buying the property from the previous tenants. And everyone with a stake can vote on what to spend funds on and other related matters.
But these arrangements can often turn toxic, especially when the parties don't know each other ahead of time. Morever the legal system is not flexible enough to cover all possible living arrangements and often the handshake agreements we make to fill in the gaps have no recourse when communication breaks down.
Is what you want to do something that could be done in the framework of a housing co-op? If so, then you wouldn't have to re-invent the wheel for many things. Co-ops have worked out a lot of issues, especially in the areas of friction where people live together and are in a joint economic venture together.
I've seen people live in various shared arrangements, and the people in co-ops seem happiest.
