Tokenized gift certificates for small businesses.
In addition to being an advocate and supportor of Icon, I am also a small business owner. We want to digitize gift certificates and rewards on Icon for small businesses. During the Icon’s Got Talent event a nominee came forward with this app here. I was immediately interested in the possibilities and as the co-owner of a 70 year old business in Chattanooga, I decided to tokenize our future. So we made the BEA token on the ICON network. It would be amazing to let all small businesses issue their own store/business tokens on ICON. Giving value to the their customers and traffic and usage to the network!
In short we propose to make a similar service as the Tokenized candidate on Icon’s Got Talent and ideally work with the author ( I’ve reached out many times to them), and democratize small business with the power, convenience and accountability of ICON.
Current state is that we are running a sub -Prep and have registered tokenup. io. (intentional)
We need help developing the service! It could revolutionize a huge industry in the United States and give the power of commerce back to small business owners left out of increasingly complex and corporate behemoths.
If we can get just a token of support and a first round we need to hire a developer. I am not a developer but the technology is ready and should be fairly easy to implement.
We need a front facing website where a business owner can use the service and issue their tokens and and online store where they can offer their gift certificates and discounts to the their customers through Facebook, other social media, and in in store QR codes that point to their store.
For example: Gateway Golf could issue discounted rounds of golf tokens or 10% less for a round of gold token and name it GGC. Tokenup would have the coin and contract created and issue the token and provide a store much like my very own proof on concept does for my own small business.
I want to bring ICON to small business and open doors of real adoption, and I need help.
Any funds will be used immediately to hire a developer to get our service running.
6 months from acceptance of grant proposal.
Funding Amount Requested
In-House Funding $2,000
Project Milestones (Month 1-3)
Hire a development team.
Get our token service up and running on a front facing website pointing to tokenup. io and begin issuing tokens to small businesses.
**Milestone-2 (Month 3)
Host businesses tokens on an online store, with Visa and Credit Card payment where tokens are sent to customers wallets when they purchase the tokenized gift certificates or where customers can purchase said business tokens and send their loved ones an email whereby that person receives instructions on how to get their tokenized gift certificates.
