What do the
stars tell

We are laying out a huge graph for you - think of it as a safety net! We are doing it so that you may be able find on your own who is closest to you when transacting, how are you connected with them, and how it may add to the reliability of the person you are about to meet for a transaction! As more people join the graph, the stronger the net becomes, and fewer would be the degrees of separation!

While we set up a graph for you as a safety net, we are not going to let you be all by yourself! Our machines are always looking for patterns that will tell us when something might go wrong. In the company of smart people, we are making them smarter by the day so that we may recommend to you with significant confidence who you should transact with and who not.

We are paranoid about safety! While we connect to more and more data sources to verify the identity of a user, we continue to think about ways to make your data safer and ever more secure, right from the moment it leaves your device and lands up on our servers.

Different things to different people, we believe! We are finding ways to differentiate between the ratings given by people who matter to you and those that probably matter little. Someone with a rating of 4.5 for your neighbour may have a rating of only 3 for you. You are not your neighbour, right?
