dc.description.abstract For millennia, human beings have shared underused assets and collaborated to improve sustainability and efficiency in communities. However, in the last decade, the internet and other technological advances have led to an increase in such activities, which collectively have become known as the collaborative or sharing economy. The rapid growth of the collaborative economy has led to particular problems. First, the abundance of information on the collaborative economy has generated misunderstanding among users. Second, financial transactions in the sharing economy are conducted through traditional payment methods, which offer slow service and long banking processes. Third, businesses in the sharing economy are significantly impacted by unreliable user reviews and ratings, which raises the question of how evaluation can be a resource rather than an obstacle. \\ This master's thesis examines the above issues. To begin it clarifies the concept of the collaborative economy and illustrates the problems related to the current payment system: potential solutions are complementary currencies. Next, it analyses and compares a number of mobile and web applications operating in the sharing economy. Finally, a trial solution for planning projects and recognizing contributions using collaborative economy concepts is proposed in the form of a case study conducted in collaboration with ValueCraft. As a trial, a mobile application is developed using React Native, which allows users to be self-governing and to cooperate on projects. en
