CURATE – The Digital Token for Fashionistas
CURATE was created from a simple but robust idea, to create a platform for curating trending fashion online by bringing fashion stakeholders together. The stakeholders are the buyers, curators and retailers in search of trending stuff and styles from the designers and their brands.
What is CURATE?
CURATE is a Decentralized Application (DApp) that is powered by the Ethereum blockchain. Smart Contracts enable the app to perform certain functions without any human intervention while ensuring maximum encryption and security that blockchain promises. It is a protocol under the ERC-20 and its code is open source for Web 3.0.
Through the platform, users provide authentic reviews which are fully trusted hence offering genuine inspiration to the distinguished and credible fashion creators. The upvotes in the system help CURATE fashion from trusted brands by giving them the deserved reviews which then transforms into increased brand awareness and sales. Through the built-in reward system, all stakeholders remain inspired to form and retain a community that remains transparent all along.
CURATE is meant for fashionistas, whether you are a follower, a creator or even a retailer dealing with fashions styles and their respective prominence. They have already partnered with big names like Amazon, Gucci and Zara.
The fuel for CURATE’s platform is their rewards that every stakeholder gets in form of digital tokens. You can get them as Bitcoin, Ether or the CURATE tokens from the system denoted as CUR8.
The vision for CURATE is to bring suppliers and their end-users to collaborate more, styles of fashion get opportunities to be viewed and rated as a way to drive the sales for the best and appealing fashion online. To do this, CURATE offers a platform that is trustless for all users; to upload their offerings for feedback which triggers more discoveries of existing and best-rated collections.
