DIMO // an open source platform owned by its users
Our community of drivers, developers, car hackers and web3 believers are coming together to build a future where devices work for their users. We’re building a user-owned platform that can help achieve safer roads, better cities, and a more sustainable planet.
By operating transparently and handing over control to users, DIMO becomes a more compelling, more equitable, and more effective platform for users, app developers, and data consumers.
We’re practically employing web3 technology to build an open developer ecosystem that maximizes the value of your vehicles’ data and functionality. As DIMO grows, we will progressively decentralize the platform at every layer and improve functionality for developers through APIs, SDKs, and other tooling.
DIMO is already seeding applications in vehicle financing, smart car insurance, electrification, maintenance, and more.
DIMO is built with, by and for users. Community members can join groups — known as Teams — which have real authority to shape the project.
Building together isn’t just about changing how we work, it’s about decentralization and fair ownership. Any DIMO token holder can create and vote on proposals to direct resources and responsibility to these teams, shaping the direction of the project as a whole. Voting is fluid, operations are transparent, and tokens flow to those adding value.
Core is focused on foundational DIMO operating infrastructure. This includes design, launch, and ongoing development work on the DIMO token, baseline rewards, treasury management, governance procedures, operational tooling (for rewards, discussion, voting, credentialing, etc.), designing global brand-assets and more.
Hardware is responsible for expanding the supply of, reducing the cost of, and expanding support for hardware devices that connect devices to the DIMO platform. In the not too distant future, the hardware ecosystem will become much more open and many 3rd party hardware manufacturers will be able to sell DIMO-compatible hardware.
Platform enables and supports the development of the DIMO protocol. The team builds systems to securely route data and make it available to the front-end for user consumption. It will also build web3 functionality (e.g., mint car and trip as NFT), deploy rewards calculations, and build for the security of the project.
NativeApps is responsible for building and maintaining the foundational apps at the core of the DIMO user experience (e.g., mobile and web app for drivers). Using iOS as an analogy, contacts and camera are “native apps.” Angry Birds and Snapchat are “app ecosystem” because they are built by 3rd parties
AppEcosystem seeds and/or supports teams building applications on top of the DIMO platform per the App Ecosystem plan. The team has exclusive domain over developer docs, DIMO Pro, and partnership conversations with ecosystem investors and builders. It will also design the AppEcosystem rewards pool and submits changes as DIPs to the community.
Media exists to teach the world about DIMO, whether that’s introducing new demographics to the concept or taking DIMO veterans deeper down the rabbit hole on very specific topics. Working closely with Growth, Media is charged with growing the DIMO user and contributor base.
Growth is responsible for supporting all efforts to expand DIMO to new users, contributors, app partners and more. Growth heads up marketing, community, and business development across these areas.
Green exists to ensure that DIMO supports long-term pro-social outcomes, primarily those related to pollution and climate change. Incentivizing positive environmental outcomes is core to the beliefs of DIMO, and Green is responsible for ensuring these incentives can be built into DIMO ecosystem.
