Homeqube, a blockchain and AI-powered e-commerce platform for real estate, announced today that it is integrating a gamified bidding experience for both buyers and sellers in its platform. With these new features, the platform aims to revolutionize how Filipinos engage with the homebuilding and real estate industries.

A New Approach to Homebuilding and Real Estate

“Our game is centered on bidding,” said Homeqube CEO Jose Paolo Calma, expounding on Homeqube’s gamified experience. “It’s a genuine bid for a deal, whether that’s for the duration of a stay in a home or for buying specific homebuilding materials. Players can lay out their needs and bid based on their set requirements or specifications.”

This gamified bidding is Homeqube’s innovative alternative to the traditional online marketplace approach of scrolling and clicking. Instead of passively browsing listings, users can participate in lively bidding lobbies where they can actively negotiate and secure their desired materials and accommodations.

Bridging Tenants and Property Owners

By leveraging blockchain and AI technologies, Homeqube has reimagined property leasing. Potential tenants can engage directly with property owners through the platform’s bidding lobbies. Homeqube’s expansive catalog of leasable properties, ranging from cozy apartments to luxurious vacation homes, ensures that every traveler finds their perfect match.

For those unfamiliar with the terms, blockchain is a secure, transparent, and immutable ledger technology, while AI refers to computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. Homeqube is harnessing these technologies to create a more transparent and efficient marketplace.

Two Distinct Modes: SIG and BIG

Homeqube introduces two distinct modes to optimize the use of the platform: the Seller Initiated Game (SIG) and the Buyer Initiated Game (BIG).

  • Seller Initiated Game (SIG): In this mode, sellers or property owners create a dedicated bidding lobby, displaying the product or property on offer. They are required to specify certain parameters, such as the asking price and availability dates. Interested buyers or guests can then access these lobbies to negotiate various terms directly, adding flexibility to the pricing and purchase process.
  • Buyer Initiated Game (BIG): This mode serves those looking to buy or rent. Buyers or guests can initiate these lobbies, specifying the kind of product or property they are seeking. Sellers and property owners can then enter these BIG lobbies, making their offers in response to the expressed needs.

The Role of $QUBE Token and USDC Stablecoin

As part of its alpha testing, Homeqube introduced its utility token called $QUBE. This token is used to facilitate games or bidding based on user-defined rules and peer verification. It also allows users to access exclusive features and earn rewards within the platform.

While $QUBE plays a pivotal role in the gaming aspect of the platform, the main medium of transaction between peers on Homeqube is the stablecoin USDC. A stablecoin is a type of cryptocurrency that is pegged to a stable asset, such as the US dollar, which ensures consistency and reliability in transactions.

Expanding Accessibility with Future Fiat Transactions

To further expand its accessibility, Homeqube plans to incorporate fiat transactions (traditional currency transactions, such as using pesos or dollars) in the near future. This inclusive approach is designed to invite a broader range of sellers and buyers to actively participate in the platform’s innovative bidding process.

With its unique gamified experience, Homeqube claims it is not just offering a new way to buy and sell property or homebuilding materials, but is reshaping the entire home value chain. As blockchain and AI continue to make waves in various industries, Homeqube hopes to serve as an example of how these technologies can be harnessed to create more engaging, transparent, and efficient marketplaces.
