DeStore is the platform to run the next generation of retail. Customers are turned into co-owners of the store via NFTs. NFT owners then source, propose, & vote. Backed by Orange DAO with a team that includes the ex-VP of retail at Casper. Featured on Bloomberg, Yahoo News Japan, The Future Laboratory, NIKKEI, and more. We will launch the world’s first decentralized store with DeStore platform. The retail space is leased in a premier area of San Francisco. Neighboring brands include Allbirds, Warby Parker, and Outdoor Voices.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We are building the future of retail.
While it may seem that online shopping has taken over, the reality is that offline and online are not mutually exclusive. We believe in combining them to make an exciting single experience.
We go to a store because we want to see and feel products, and desire a personal connection with the brands we support.
Although we crave something more, current physical retail is still transactional. How we shop in our favorite store has not changed in a very long time.
Offline retail needs a re-design to leverage and maximize the experience.
All consumers will interact with retailers as stakeholders within the next decade. We will experience the next level of connection. We will be a part of what we love.
DeStore will be the infrastructure to empower all retailers to build, grow, and get creative in their retail outlets with the community.
