Remove uncertainty. View any seller’s global reputation, pay with escrow, and leave feedback for completed transactions.

Reputation is decentralized, independent, and public, so it is available anywhere. Bring it with you and never worry about rebuilding it from scratch.

Ink Protocol can be integrated into new or existing marketplaces and can also be used in marketplaces that don’t directly handle payments.

Ink Protocol doesn’t require a marketplace. It can be used for any peer-to-peer transaction, regardless of where it happens.

Ink Protocol will be THE STANDARD way to buy and sell on any platform, while earning public reputation for every transaction.

Sellers will earn Ink reputation everywhere they sell and use it for instant credibility on all marketplaces and for all p2p transactions.

Buyers will demand that sellers have Ink reputation, which they can look up via dozens of apps and websites quickly and easily.

There will be hundreds of distributed mediators and mediation services available to choose from when dealing with a peer-to-peer transaction.

Buyers and sellers will feel safe and secure when transacting online with strangers, both within and outside of any established marketplaces.

Hundreds of decentralized marketplaces and partnerships built on top of Ink Protocol will thrive and become the standard way for people to transact with each other online and in-person.
