How it works

Drivers looking for a parking spot connect with parking owners through the PARKGENE app.

Once a driver reserves a parking spot, the reservation triggers the PARKGENE smart contract on the Ethereum Public Blockchain.

The PARKGENE App transfers the full parking fee amount, in GENEs, from the driver’s wallet, to a depository (a temporary wallet). In the event that the driver doesn’t have enough GENEs, he can use his credit card or other means of payment (bitcoins, ethers) to buy GENEs in real-time and pay for the transaction.

Successful reservation and payment offers drivers and parking owners additional features needed for the completion of the parking session:

For example, the driver will have the ability to open the garage door using his mobile phone, while the parking owner is notified and can monitor – the video of the vehicle entry and departure. This optional functionality is possible using remote access tools, currently available in the market, integrated on the PARKGENE platform, or through a low-cost PARKGENE device.

At the end of a successful transaction, parties conclude a smart contract on Ethereum, with the entry and its confirmation on the blockchain.
The parking space owner receives 75% of smart contract in GENE tokens, , from the depository to their wallet, when drivers check out of the parking space.

The  remaining 25% is distributed as follows:

  • 5% of the total amount is paid to the driver and parking space owner as they perform several actions that enhance the ecosystem (e.g. Ratings, Reviews).
  • 20% of the total amount is paid to PARKGENE to cover operational, development, cloud services and advertising costs.

At any time, the users of the platform can buy or sell GENE tokens for  FIAT currency (USD, EUR, JPY, CNY, etc.) or other cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, etc) by using several cryptocurrency exchange services that trade the GENE token.

GENE is available in a limited edition of 1,000,000,000 GENE Tokens.

We expect that the increase of users and number of smart contracts will increase the demand for GENEs among drivers, resulting in a token that other service providers (i.e. Tolls, Car Wash, Car Insurance, Tow Service providers etc.) will accept as payment for their services.
