Blockchain is a technology that does not rely on third parties to store, verify, transfer and communicate network data through its own decentralized nodes. Important features of the blockchain include decentralization, independence, security, and anonymity. This study mainly uses Ethereum blockchain technology to establish a combination of money flow and transparency for implementing a rental trading platform, such that the platform can trade, control and autonomously rent a house without third-party management. In addition, all the transaction information can be recorded in the blockchain for everyone to search. For the landlords, the platform can save their cost of promotion. For the tenants, they can check the past transaction records of the house, confirm the past rental process of the house, and find a more suitable house.
