DIMO is a user-owned digital ecosystem that is driving change in the mobility industry. The company is building an open-source platform where real driver data makes technology that is actually useful, and where everyone involved has their say.
DIMO is a decentralized data-driven ecosystem fueled by an entire network of drivers. By connecting drivers and their data with developers and manufacturers, the company is building the largest, most useful IoT network of user-owned devices, starting with cars.
Let's dive right in...
What is DIMO?
Dimo for drivers
DIMO is a decentralized platform that allows drivers to share their data on their terms and get rewarded in the long term. The company helps drivers get more from driving by enabling them to save money, learn how to better take care of their car, and contribute to a future where driving apps work for vehicle owners, not the companies that build them.
Dimo for developers
DIMO is also for developers who want to build on the biggest open network of mobility data ever. The company is teaming up with developers to create a new class of mobility apps. Developers can build on DIMO's stable, open-source platform and utilize real-world data from the tens of thousands of cars that contribute to the network.
What is the DIMO app?
The DIMO app is a mobile application that allows drivers to earn rewards for sharing their data. The app is available for download on both iOS and Android devices. Drivers can connect their car to the app using a device that plugs into the OBD-II port in their car. Once connected, the app will collect data on the driver's vehicle, including information on fuel efficiency, driving habits, and more. This data is then used to help drivers save money and improve their driving habits. In addition, drivers can earn rewards for sharing their data with the DIMO network. These rewards can be redeemed for a variety of prizes, including discounts on car maintenance and repairs, free car washes, and more.
How does DIMO work?
DIMO works by connecting drivers and their data with developers and manufacturers. The company is building a network of user-owned devices, starting with cars, that will allow developers to create new and innovative mobility apps. The data collected by the DIMO app is used to improve the driving experience for drivers, while also providing valuable insights to developers and manufacturers. By sharing their data, drivers can help shape the future of mobility and earn rewards for doing so.
How DIMO users come to own the platform
DIMO aims to be a reliable, secure, and open base layer for connected devices. The only way to achieve these goals is to build DIMO as a platform where control is vested in a diverse collection of users and stakeholders who all have skin in the game.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, and connected vehicle platforms like Wejo are "walled garden" platforms. Developers have seen how they will extort you if you become successful on their platform. There are no clear rules on access and censorship, and ultimately ownership of user data.
Web 2.0 business models systematically create these incentives, and part of the vision for DIMO is to create a reality where user-owned digital ecosystems are the norm.
By reducing friction and bureaucracy, opening up DIMO to global contributors, creating an operating structure that can scale, and aligning all stakeholders around the $DIMO token, the DIMO platform and the apps on top of it will be built far better and faster.
Today, holders of the $DIMO token can create and vote on proposals that control how the network works. These DIMO Improvement Proposals ("DIPs" for short) can upgrade the way the DIMO smart contracts and token work, can grant privileges (e.g., a vote to issue a license to make DIMO Miners to a hardware manufacturer), set tokens aside for grants, and more.
There are no self-imposed restrictions on what the DIMO community is able to vote on and do. We expect that some of the key activities of the DIMO foundation will include:
- Designing, deploying, and adjusting rewards pools for drivers and referral bonus programs;
- Allocating authority and resources to teams and individuals via streams, grants, and bounties. This may fund work such as: building decentralized data storage infrastructure; determining the optimal method by which vehicle data will be priced and sold; building applications on top of DIMO; and DBC decoding to expand the number of supported vehicles;
- Whitelisting third-party hardware suppliers who build the devices that sign and stream data; and
- Investing the treasury.
