What is Blockchain?
Blockchain is a decentralized approach to managing and operating a business platform, an organization or even an economy system, such that participants are not just passive consumers but also have a say in how it is run and may even benefits from its growth. This will open up huge potentials for innovation and result in a more democratic system.
What is WOLOT Foundation?
WOLOT Foundation Ltd. Is a non-profit organization registered in Singapore. WOLOT was created to promote and support the development of a digital online ecosystem called “TOOL Global” for all SMEs (small and medium enterprises) worldwide.
What does WOLOT Foundation do?
WOLOT Foundation will organise meetings, seminars, social network activities to educate SMEs and users on the benefit of building and joining the ecosystem. To help gather feedback to better improve the ecosystem. To sponsor activities that help to achieve the purpose of WOLOT foundation.
WOLOT Foundation will also support technical developers who wish to build applications, tools and projects within the ecosystem. WOLOT Foundation will form a technical committee to oversee the technology direction and development roadmap of TOOL blockchain.
What is TOOL Global?
The TOOL Global is a digital online ecosystem with the purpose of pooling together and sharing users so as to address the need of SMEs to acquire users affordably and efficiently.
TOOL Global ecosystem is built on the TOOL blockchain technology owned by Singapore IBD Technology.
Users can participate in the ecosystem by engaging the merchants and SMEs in the ecosystem with their online behaviour like purchasing products and services. In return users are rewarded with BT, a global unified loyalty reward token that represents the data from their online behaviour. BT can be redeemed in the ecosystem in exchange for perks, rewards, discount, gifts or product and services that the SMEs offer to BT holders.
The TOOL Global ecosystem will eventually be managed and self-governed by participants of the ecosystem itself, in an autonomous and decentralized fashion. WOLOT will support this management team that the ecosystem selects.
How it works?
Businesses can puchase BTs and hand them out as incentives to customers on the ecosystem to gather specific data that they need, or as rewards when customers engage with their advertisements. Already have a fully functioning app or e-commerce? We can do an integration with a simple API call.
All transactions on the ecosystem will be converted to appropriate behavioral value tags (e.g. BT). These BTs are recorded on the blockchain and can be accumulated to be exchanged for products, services, or OLO tokens, which can be used to make payments in the ecosystem and/or stored for appreciation.
