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.

Quantler
Quantler is a blockchain for creating, analysing, sharing and running of decentralized structured investment products. Create structured products (such as an ETF) in equities or cryptocurrencies using themes. As there are a lot of the tokenized products being launched (currently over 1 900 available) the structured products for these assets are lacking behind (such as sector-based ETFs). Using Quantler’s blockchain anyone can create structured products (for regular assets such as Equities and cryptocurrencies) and run them on a decentralized network (much like smart contracts). Quantler also allows for regular assets, for this market Quantler’s solution is more flexible and has a lower costs base (targeted for exchanges, family offices and investment managers). The QUANT token’s intrinsic value is dependent on the AUM (asset under management) by the entire network. Quantler is like a Vanguard or BlackRock, but then in the form of a network.
Upcoming
GoRecruit
GoRecruit is an AI recruitment system based on blockchain technology, which offers a new way of evaluating job applicants. The AI system, being a convenient online service, enables making HR decisions based on the analysis of data from social networks and publicly available sources. To select applicants for an interview, one does not need to spend several hours for processing and analyzing the data: one will acquire the detailed information with recommendations immediately after the authorization of a candidate in the GoRecruit system. This approach will make access to vacancies more open, eliminate human error in hiring, as well as reduce the cost of HR service by optimizing routine work.
