Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dappre?

Dappre is an app for your smartphone, it allows you to make 1-on-1 connections with people and organisations. Dappre gives you the power to decide who knows what about you.

1-on-1 Connections

You and your 1-on-1 connections can subscribe to each other’s data. This is done in the form of cards that contain sets of data. Data like an address and phone number for example. If a connection updates the number, the card from your connection will automatically be updated on your phone. We call this “Live Cards”. You don’t have to do a thing, except manage your own data.

And when you decide a connection should no longer be able to see your data you simply break the connection.

Anonymous 1-on-1 Connections

When you connect with an organisations, by default, you only share your Anonymous card. You can always decide to share more later.


Need to send a message or image to a Connection? Dappre allows you to send end-to-end encrypted messages and images.


We also got group chats covered. We call this Tribes. When you create a Tribe you become the Chief. As a Chief you are in complete control of who is allowed to join your Tribe. A single Tribe can have multiple Channels. It’s up to you how to organize your Tribe. For example a Tribe for your organisation can have multiple Channels representing the different departments.

Where is my data stored?

This can get pretty technical, but here it goes:

  • Your Qiy Node (this is where all the magic happens) is stored on servers of DigitalMe in KPN data centers in the Netherlands.
  • To access your Qiy Node an access code is saved in the keychain of your device.
  • The data on your card is stored on DigitalMe servers.
  • Lastly: for offline use, a local copy of the cards from your connections is stored on your device.

What’s the difference with a system like LinkedIn?

Networks like LinkedIn are a relief, but only on an individual level. These systems are not much of a help finding the right contact people within an organisation.

Besides this, information on LinkedIn is often not up-to-date and not easy to verify. And from an international perspective, LinkedIn as a platform is not embraced worldwide.

What is the revenue model of Dappre?

Dappre is free for individuals, organisations pay a fee for a service called DappreConnect. This service allows them to create a verified contact card.

Individuals can allow organisations to subscribe to only the data they want to share. Data is shared based on the individuals own terms: Qiy Trust Principles.
