Our project, called Mere, aims to facilitate the seamless integration of businesses into the Decentraland metaverse. We recognize several key challenges and opportunities within the Decentraland ecosystem, and we’re committed to addressing them for the benefit of both businesses and the metaverse community.
Challenges We Address:
Complexity Barrier: Integrating businesses into the metaverse can be daunting due to its perceived complexity. Our project is focused on simplifying this process, making it accessible to a broader range of businesses.
Lack of User-Friendly Tools: Decentraland lacks user-friendly tools for businesses. We intend to provide an all-in-one solution that caters to various business types, ensuring a more straightforward and efficient integration process.
Exclusion of Web2 Users: Decentraland primarily targets Web3 users with blockchain experience. We’re introducing a “no crypto required” feature, making it possible for traditional Web2 businesses to integrate seamlessly.
Benefits for Decentraland:
Diverse Business Ecosystem: Our project will foster a diverse business ecosystem in the metaverse, attracting a broader audience and enhancing the overall user experience.
Increased Adoption: Removing the crypto requirement will attract more traditional businesses to Decentraland, increasing the platform’s adoption rate.
Business-Specific CRM: We are developing a dedicated CRM system for businesses in Decentraland, improving their efficiency and customer relationship management.
Alignment with Web2: Our “no crypto required” approach aligns with Web2 businesses, broadening Decentraland’s appeal.
Why Funding Matters:
Creating a comprehensive platform for business integration in the metaverse is a resource-intensive endeavor. Funding is crucial to:
Accelerate Feature Development: Timely feature development and updates based on user feedback. We plan to work on CRM for businesses integrated into Decentraland as the key-feature
Ensure Security: To protect business operations and customer data, funding will be used to implement robust security measures. We already have a partner Protelion, who are experts in cybersecurity
Marketing and Outreach: We want to launch in the next year and we need PR support and some money on the first marketing company. We plan to raise round in VC in the next year to boost our results and attract more online specialists and businesses into our platform and Decentraland.
In conclusion, Mere is poised to create a mutually beneficial ecosystem for businesses and the Decentraland metaverse. We request your support to realize this vision, collaborating with the Decentraland community to shape the metaverse’s future.
