Decentralized Shopping Through Open Reward Systems

A blockchain-based, censorship resistant, DAS (decentralized autonomous stores)



What is dStors?

dStors is the leading blockchain based marketplace built on the world's fastest, mosts efficient, secure blockchain:

STEEM

Merchants and vendors are offered instant, zero-confirmation cryptocurrency transactions layered with double-spend protection and other ecommerce-friendly functions with the added benefits of crypto rewards distribution per any economic activity on the platform.

You can set up your own decentralized store and thanks to the Steem blockchain's revolutionary DPOS (delegated proof of stake) consensus, start earning even before you start selling!

Taking Steemit from Blogging to Business

Right now on Steemit, many people are using it as a blogging platform or to share their creativity, whether it is their music, photography or artwork. We at dStors want to push this even further and give anyone the ability to become an entrepreneur, where users can manage their own store on the blockchain.

Right now there are people all over the world that are making some amazing things but have a limited audience to where they can sell them. In the poverty stricken countries, a lot of the hand made items that are bought by the tourists are made by people that end up having to sell their items to the shops in the area for pennies on the dollar and then the mark up that those shops sell the items for are ridiculous. With dStors, we will be giving the power back to that person that is making those items and giving them the ability to sell them all over the world for what they are truly worth.

More utility for Steem and SBD

Right now, there isn't many options for one to redeem their Steem or SBD on. With dStors, you will be able to use your Steem and SBD to buy and sell goods from people all over the world. This will increase the value of Steem by showing that there is more utility for it outside of the Steemit platform.

How will it work?

Users will be able to create their personal dStor by logging into dstors.com (still under construction, will be finished VERY soon). Your dstor will be connected to the Steem blockchain via Steemconnect. You will be able to create listings for your items and choose whether or not those listings post to your personal Steemit page, or whether they are posted to the official @dstors wharehouse listing. Your listing will be stored inside of your personal store and is searchable for all of the members of the dStors community for purchase.

The truly amazing thing about dStors is that we will be utilizing the Steemit reward pool to mitigate the shipping costs by distributing the reward pool in a meaningful way. We are hoping to secure some delegation for the project while I am at #steemfest in Poland. With that delegation we are going to "reward" the item listing once there is confirmation that shipping has been initiated. We feel that using the reward pool in this way opens the doors for true peer to peer borderless trade to happen. People across the world have been hindered by the cost of shipping, and this is a thing gives the keys to success for people everywhere to become business owners.

Meet me at Steemfest!

I will be at Steemfest in a few days talking to everyone about @dstors, so make sure that you come and find me. Thanks to @roelandp, I will be hosting a roundtable session where I will be answering all sorts of questions about the dStors project or any other questions you all have for me.

@kaliju, and I, and the rest of the dStors team have been working hard these past few months to bring this to everyone here on Steemit. We are excited to be launching it very soon. This is going to be revolutionary for the Steem blockchain.

The development is being led by @julianmnst and he's done an incredible job so far. We're looking for more interested parties to join our efforts to bring this out to the masses, so please join our discord to get in touch with our team.

Best thing I've seen so far in relation to the STEEM chain and what can be done with it.

·

Agree 100%!!

awesome project.. delegated 500 sp to support it.. thx

·

You are awesome. It is much appreciated.

Crazy shit.... cant wait till day 1 with this nice trading page

Extremely excited!!!

We are excited to be launching it very soon. This is going to be revolutionary for the Steem blockchain.

Absolutely convinced of this! Agree 100%!

Looking forward to this 😉

Ohhh NICE! I've been waiting for something like this! Glad I'll be able to chat about this at SteemFest :D

Nice! See you at Steemfest!

Great project.

This looks really good.. I'm looking forward to this site

OK I see a lot of potential here, but this overview brings to mind many questions... Everyone these days is looking for ROI and I am wondering if there is any thru DELI. But I see great potential for sellers and buyers.

Small e-packet items from China are dirt cheap to send, apparently. Not sure about other parts of the world, but I shipped several 1 oz silver rounds and top charge was $15 but most of that was for customs on valuable items, precious metals. Craft and clothing type items should have lower tax and customs and therefore shipping, provided the weight is not excessive.

This is an absolute game changer! It seems like I reading new developments everyday that’s better than the next!

Thanks for building dstor! I’m sure you’ll get some delegation at steemfest!

It looks like another great project without support from the top.

Holy shit, this sounds amazing :)

Global shipping can get very expensive - but this likes an incredible initiative - artists and craftspeople will be able to sell their work to other steemians, and further to that; it adds huge utility to the Steem Blockchain.

It is truly becoming a decentralised Internet platform, as opposed to just a blogging chain!

Omfg this is awesome! Been waiting for something like this

Been wanting something like this for so long

This is an amazing project can't wait to see it up and running!

Delegate to our project via SteemConnect:
10 SP | 20 SP | 50 SP | 100 SP | 200 SP | 500 SP | 1000 SP | 5000 SP

Hm, just one question. Why need decentralized? I mean, its pretty good, if i want to sell drugs or guns or fake identities, but for shoes or phones, you know... too much effort.
No offense, no sarcasm, im really curious.

First off, this project isnt set up as a place for people to sell illegal items like Silk Road or anything. Everything that is posted is on the blockchain and is public, so it would be pretty stupid in my opinion to try and do anything illegal like that.

It really isnt that much effort for someone to post shoes or other items for sale either. The items in the picture were just to give ideas on what can be sold, which is basically anything you want to. Our goal is to empower the seller and give them the ability to be the owner of their own store on the blockchain. That is not possible in all areas of the world prior to a decentralized shop system like this. There are many hoops and fees associated with operating stores on sites such as Ebay, Amazon, Etsy and similar sites. With dStors, none of that.

Thanks for your answer!
I dont want to sell any illegal, so my question was actually simple curiosity :) Btw if you think about it, the most of the criminals arent so smart :D

So not the decentralization the big thing, but the fee-less operating is. And the fee-less thing, right now, the steem blockchain. Good idea, imho.

·

Good point.

This is class! Best of luck . Can’t wait to start using it

Hey, @derangedvisions.

This idea is not a deranged vision at all, but an idea whose time has come. I'm looking forward to seeing how this works. Not sure what I have yet to sell, but I still like the idea. What about digital downloads, say for ebooks or software? Is that a part of this? I hope I didn't miss that option in your post here.

Good luck with Steemfest. I hope it goes well with you there with the round table and that it results in many positive things for you and your business.

You can sell whatever you want in your store. It is yours. That is the beauty of this. Here is another more in depth post about the whole project from the main creator @kaliju:

Sounds like an awesome things for the Steem blockchain. Love seeing these new developments and I would love to be able to try it out.

It sounds very cool. Have to dig more on it, definetely.

Steem on!

Cheers

Really looking forward to seeing this up and running. Love the idea for using upvotes to defray shipping costs!

Thanks!

The possibility of gaining some "flower power" via this store is very intriguing.
How will that issue be addressed for us residing in areas where "flower power" usage is frowned upon?

All parties involved will still need to follow their local laws.

This is a truly wonderful idea! Wishing you all the best and I can't wait to begin shopping!

We know Steemit is a blogging platform and social media. Now dStors is opening a new direction. Now there is an opportunity to be an entrepreneur. I think this is a great initiative! Wish you all the best!

How will you insure shipping?

Hello, I love the idea! But your discord link expired! Could you share a new one?

Darn I am too late again or invalid invite :(

that's a good find! I was recently wondering - when someone would make any such - and there it is! thanks for sharing.

now, this what I've been talking about - that STEEM coint price boost could be achieved though such usage in real life. (apart from trading it on exchanges)

although have to see how it's gonna be practically successful. because there are already quite a few decentralized stores blockchain based - and so far not much trade is going on there.

well, might as well try these Dstors - why not? :)

perhaps the main issue is : how and where the goods listed there are gonna be promoted, would platform itself assist user in SEO or each person would have to do it himself?
