People are very excited about decentralizing finance and shaving off 1%-2 off of CC transaction fees. Meanwhile, Amazon is charging independent merchants 50% and more in commissions and fees, Apple is charging 30% app developers.
BOOM! is a project that will change this, by creating a decentralized commerce (de.com) platform. We’re starting by creating an open advertising platform (on a blockchain) where independent publishers, content creators, influencers can monetize their audience in a transparent, fair, and sustainable way.
- Consumers receive better offers, pay less and have better choices
- Content creators monetize relevant content by promoting independent businesses (both online and brick-and-mortar) and specialized, local and niche products and services. They get paid more and have full transparency over success rates and purchases (no attribution problems).
- Merchants generate more sales from loyal consumers. They only pay affordable success fees (no up-front or pre-pay costs, no pay per clicks that don’t convert).
I’ve published a post on HN today, our manifesto explaining the details: https://hackernoon.com/a-decentralized-ecommerce-platform-whats-the-deal-g92h3t5w
We also have this silly explainer vided:

I’m happy to get into more details and answer any questions.
