What do you think makes your company stand out? Can you share a story?

We saw how easy it would be for cutting edge blockchain technology to solve this bottleneck out of our technology market adoption. We know our technology is a proven viable product, we know retailers need us to execute in-store and online as a joint venture for shoppers and now our mCart token makes it easy for them to do it.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

We both support multiple non-profit organizations such as Center for investigative reporting (CIR), Iranian American Contribution project, Iranian Scholarship Foundation (ISF), Pars Equality Center among others.
