• About Us

    Neighborhoods are our modern-day villages. They lack local resource management and social governance framework, systems and tools which would enable residents to feel empowered in meeting their basic human needs.

    The peer-to-peer design of distributed ledgers and smart contracts enables community-led solutions to revolutionize the activities of our daily lives.

     

    DeLife is creating a circular lifestyle paradigm though our Distributed Ledger Technology platform geared towards local resource management and social governance.
