TANZŌ: The first Blockchain-based Social Marketplace for handmade goods



  • Introduction

    Blockchain and Smart Contracts open many doors to new decentralized businesses and eliminates the need for expensive third parties. Many new companies are now working on this technology, and large companies are testing it in closed networks to collaborate directly with each other without the need for intermediaries.
    For that reason, there is a lot of projects that are starting to use this new technology. However, not all of them are worth it. We have to read well what each project is dedicated to, what is its whitepaper, its qualified advisors, etc. As I said, blockchain technology has gained popularity due to the hype about cryptocurrencies which has shaken many startups to launch their own cryptocurrencies even without convincing fundamentals. This trend has emerged because new entrants have been more agile in adopting emerging technologies compared to incumbents who are hampered by legacy systems. However, this competitiveness and this advantage enjoyed by the new players may be short-lived, as no economies of scale are taken into account.

    Currently, the best-known e-commerce platforms do not make it easy for true artisans to sell their unique items at fair prices. So much so that artisans are forced to compete directly with wholesalers and retailers who sell counterfeit or mass produced replicas on the same platform and at much lower prices. To solve this, I want to introduceTANZŌ, the first social market for handicrafts, where artisans are protected and crafts are guaranteed.

    Definition

    As I said, TANZŌ (https://tanzo.io/) is a one-of-a-kind social market with distributed ledger technology for hand-made products that ensures transparency within the platform and eliminates any unfair competition, such as wholesale vendors and mass-produced replicate listings. Thanks to TANZŌ, artisans are protected and craftsmanship is guaranteed.
    In order to ensure that only true artisans can sell their handmade items on the platform and guarantee, for potential buyers, that all products are actually handmade by the artisan who sells them, TANZŌhas designed a verification process of identity.

    Goals

    The main objective of TANZŌ is to become a synchronized social platform, based on a completely decentralized trust system, which ensures that all parties involved in any transaction are equally protected.

    How it works

    In combination with the blockchain technology, TANZŌ uses geolocation and time stamp functionality to verify the identity and authenticity of each new craftsman, as well as each new item. In this way, all artisans are real and sell their own handmade products under their own name.


    With the use of smart contracts, the integrated review system of TANZŌ is based on the records of each transaction between buyer and seller, which ensures that all revisions of the articles come from people who have actually purchased the item. This smart contracts system is responsible for registering artisans and their products in the blockchain by complying with predefined conditions. In this way, each product purchase is recorded in the blockchain as a transaction.

    Bounty

    The project gives the opportunity to earn TANZŌ tokens performing some social media tasks and doing simple steps from the bounty program explained in the following Bitcointalk Webpage (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5055888.0). Doesn't that sound interesting? If you are interested in this airdrop or basically in the ICO, you can read their Whitepaper here (https://tanzo.io/assets/pdfs/Tanzo_Whitepaper.pdf). You can also stay tuned in their official Telegram group (https://t.me/tanzoofficial). I hope you liked the post and soon I'll send you new ones.
