Should the following Tier 5: up to $120,000 USD, 6 months vesting (1 month cliff) grant in the Platform Contributor category be approved?
ADVERTSISING SPACE FACILITY (AD BOOSTER) - Purchase Advertising Space on the wearable marketplace to spotlight a published item for a selective period of time. In addition, sellers will be able to see what their forecasted reach would be from their chosen budget. Plus, sellers will receive demand analytics for advertising results.
LOYALTY POINTS PROGRAMME (LLP) - to reward users for spending MANA, gaining points which can be redeemed or offset to future transactions.
Our mission is to further encourage the community to reinvest contributing to growth in the Decentraland economy.
Partnered with RAFT who have been operating for 10+ years, taking on over 600+ projects and well-adapt to the ETH blockchain.
Providing Advertising Space Facilities and Loyalty Points schemes are proven to encourage engagement in marketplaces, social platforms and-all.
AD Boosters will discover items in a high supply economy boosting high and low exposure items:
FACT - According to ‘OnlineSales.ai’, “Introducing merchant-funded product listing ads can give a boost (to the Bottomline of the marketplace) of more than 50% of the revenue generated through GMV (Gross Merchandise Value). It significantly strengthens the revenue model of a marketplace.”
- According to FORBES “78% of consumers are more likely to buy from a brand with a loyalty program”
- According to FinExtra “71% of consumers say loyalty rewards programs are a meaningful part of their brand relationship”
Selling wearables – Noticeably, there is a large supply of wearables entering the marketplace daily which gives sellers less time on the ‘Newest Items’ list and at the top of the page of the item category.
The grant provided will fund version 1.0 which will be the initial instalment to AD BOOSTER & LLP. We anticipate that there will be further updates & added features required post the project going LIVE from internal & external sources. Internally, being analysing user activity and externally, being user feedback.

Green Projects Marketplace:
Our engineering team have been participated in Blockchain tech related projects. One of them was a marketplace for Green projects investing. In that project funding has been transferred from Buyer to Supplier via smart contract on Ethereum platform. This project was led by Large Global Technology and project goal was to improve efficiency for new Green technology startups. Frontend and backend squads from Raft with total of 10 engineers was focused on building web application and support product launch.

Another project related to Ethereum was implementation of on demand blockchain network for Major Cloud Services provider. Raft engineers have designed and coded VS Code extension for Cloud Blockchain services and added Truffle, Solidity integrations within that extension. Second team have helped customer’s engineering team to quickly launch web interface for Blockchain Cloud Service and test it before public preview release on Ignite conference.
