We'd like to introduce to you our very own Virtue Emporium - a decentralised marketplace where buyers and sellers can connect to undertake transactions in a confidential and secure manner. One of the key applications for a privacy protocol is in the creation of truly decentralized data marketplaces. These marketplaces require privacy and a solution like Virtue’s Trust Protocol in order to function properly . We, at Virtue Fintech, is building such a decentralized data marketplace to help our protocol realize its full promise.
At a closer look, we are creating a decentralized data marketplace that allows people, companies and organizations to contribute data, service, or products, which users of the system can then subscribe to and consume. In Virtue Emporium, these "purchases" are handled in a decentralized manner through the use of smart contracts. The Virtue Emporium can be expanded by having other marketplaces and stores that can be integrated to the same platform by building it on top of the Virtue Emporium platform or by linking it to the platform. The currency that would be accepted in the platform would be ATC or other sub-store token linked to VE.
Below are the type of sub-stores that will be made available on Virtue Emporium:
The Virtue Emporium contract will be deployed on the Ethereum testnet, and it will also be submitted for auditing. Once the audit is complete, the contract will be deployed and functional on the mainnet. This is targetted to be completed by Q3 of 2018.
