An Ethereum-Based Real Estate Application with Tampering-Resilient Document Storage
Name Vladyslav Kopylash
Abstract Blockchain and smart contracts technology enables changes in many industries providing a distributed platform for running decentralized applications. Many companies want to adopt smart contracts technology and use it in their business processes to boost the performance. In this work we present the case study of the real estate company in Singapore that partially integrated blockchain into one of its processes, but wants to move the whole process to the smart contract. After modelling and analyzing their business processes, we create a proof-of-concept of a hybrid system that integrates Ethereum smart contract and traditional web application. Also, we introduce the concept of tampering-resilient document storage and extend the baseline solution to add support for such storage that is based on IPFS. Finally, we summarize and discuss the potential problems that can be met during the development of a blockchain-based application. We provide potential solutions and describe their implications.
