We make technology matter by transforming retail stores into digital shops to bridge the physical and virtual divide in blocky ways to enrich people’s lives.
Who We Are
We are a company of technologists spanning real-time visualization systems, machine learning product data structures, and artificially intelligent shopping processes who are passionate about creating a new backbone for the commercial Internet, a decentralized supply chain network that maintains the integrity of product availability, accuracy, and authenticity in the retail ecosystem.
What We Do
We are committed to democratizing the commercial web by empowering businesses to share product catalogs, or share product inventories with their customers, by utilizing our proprietary blockchain-blockshare-blocktrade technologies to drive consumer demand for goods and services while simultaneously minimizing inventory risks for businesses in the retail marketplace.
Why We Care
We are dedicated to making retail matter. In a world where the power of new commerce technologies often poses great uncertainties, we place a great deal of emphasis on understanding their social impacts because they have the potential to alter the way people live, work, and play. The power of technology is particularly transformative in the retail industry where it creates economic value but often does so through a highly disruptive process. In many cases, emerging retail technologies create efficiencies, shifting profit pools from one industry to another to bring about more productivity. Yet despite these economic benefits, the ability to measure their social harms has remained limited. For instance, advancements in robotics have real potential to drive tangible improvements in quality of life while artificially intelligent systems have the potential to change the way people buy, which often times results in wider disparities in education, employment, or income due to accessibility. We believe in making technology matter not only in terms of economic impact but also its capacity to enrich people’s lives.
We are empowered by our partners. There is no greater lesson in life than to learn that our success is closely tied to our relationships with our peers in the industry, and through public-private sector collaborations that share our vision of technologies that better our future.
We are motivated by our colleagues. We try to be imperfectly perfect in every line of retail code, every pixel of commercial design, every product idea captured in written form, knowing that these errors create the conditions to look beyond the obvious. After all, to err is only human but to really mess things up people need computers.
