We’re reinventing the global equity blockchain through a smart, easy-to-use platform connecting the EOS community and dApp developers entirely disrupting the way businesses access blockchain bandwidth.
You have control of your tokens every step of the way, in a powerful, easy to use token leasing Dapp.
Chintai is a fully functional token leasing platform that will allow EOS token holders to generate income through token leasing, while in turn providing critical resources needed by dApp developers. The high-powered Chintai leasing engine will allow for instant algorithmic execution of market transactions to create a thriving token leasing platform.

Chintai is 100% free to use thanks to the following sponsors who help cover the ongoing development and operating costs for the Chintai platform:
We understand how complex some of these concepts can be, so we have provided a list of common questions to help you below.
No, Chintai is a community owned dApp. There are some members of the founding team associated with a block producer, but the rest of the team has no affiliation, and this will NOT be a dApp owned by a block producer.
Yes, any BP who wishes to support Chintai is invited to do so. Please reach out to the Chintai team if this is of interest.
Chintai will be funded by BP's to cover the operational costs of running the business. There will be an auxiliary fee mechanism incorporated into the leasing engine as well in times of a deficit, but the business will be primarily BP funded.
The core mission of Block.One at this point in time will be to ensure the EOS software is ready for launch. They have confirmed they will not be developing a fully operational token leasing dApp upon launch of the platform in June.
No, the roadmap displays the timeline the Chintai team expects advanced functionality to be developed as the platform is built out.
The Chintai token is purely an internal utility token to enable the current price discovery mechanism through a lessor and lesse bid-offer. The internal Chintai tokens are used to be bought back and then burned at the end of the cycle to enable the fee payment mechanism. These tokens are non-tradeable.
At initial launch, there will most likely be default term expiry options. However, upon build out of the platform, there will be advanced leasing functionality incorporated into the platform to account for all types of lease contract options.
No, the current thinking is that smart contracts will lock up the tokens until the expiration of the contract. This is subject to change.
If for some reason there is a dispute regarding the terms of the lease contract, users will have access to arbitration in order to settle disputes.
No, users will be able to offer or place bids for as many EOS as they choose as long as they have the liquidity and capital to do so.
At the end of the lease cycle, if lessors are unhappy with the fee they were paid in return, they have the opportunity to non-renew the previous contract. This ensures that dApp's leasing EOS will offer fees that will fairly compensate their lessors, or else they will lose access to their rented EOS.
At the end of the cycle, if the lessor chooses to non-renew, EOS are returned to the lessor and immediately removed from the leasing contract.
