Powerful eCommerce platforms have captured the market acting as monolithic intermediaries that extract excess value. Commerce needs reimagining. We need to upgrade the current system with the users at the heart of the solution.

Here at Boson Protocol, we are enabling a decentralized commerce ecosystem where all participants share in the value they create. Over the last few months, people have been talking about us as a new foundational primitive for commerce:

“Boson takes web3 to the next level building on the success of DeFi” — Jamie Burke, founder, Outlier Ventures

The Boson Protocol Vision

Our vision at Boson Protocol is to enable a decentralized commerce ecosystem by funding and enabling the development of a stack of specialized applications to disrupt, demonopolize and democratize commerce.

We will tokenize real-world services and their data within liquid digital markets, built on DeFi, while allowing users to opt into monetizing their data on a voluntary basis.

We are creating a solution to the digital to physical redemption problem by facilitating the execution of commerce transactions without human intermediaries or arbitrators.

Boson is a commerce bridge between the Metaverse and the universe which enables smart contracts to connect to real world commerce using decentralized commerce infrastructure that is accessible and secure.

The result is the elimination of centralized intermediaries and the minimization of arbitration, cost and friction.

A New dCommerce Stack

To kick-start this new dCommerce stack, we are developing a library of developer tools and a number of reference applications including a decentralized marketplace for Things and peer-to-peer reference application for real world redemption, while the dCommerce DAO

will be a community-curated DAO for funding the growth of the dCommerce ecosystem.

Composability is a cornerstone of the Web3 ecosystem, and the project has already announced integrations and partnerships with a number of key players in the tokenized economy or the wider digital space, including Ocean Protocol and Eidoo.

The Lightpaper is now available

The Boson Protocol Light Paper, sets out exactly how the $BOSON commitment token works for governance, staking and incentivization, and gives a simplified overview of the game theory that underlies the protocol, as well as stating the project’s overall aims and mission.

It displays how our commitment tokens and core exchange mechanism can disrupt ecommerce platforms, create a planetary-level Web3 data marketplace for commerce and empower a whole new community of buyers, builders and sellers.
