VeganNation, a community connecting vegans across the globe, has announced the launch of the first global vegan-friendly decentralized community platform. Based on blockchain technology, a designated cryptocurrency and a sharing economy, VeganNation will create a fully functioning ecosystem that will support every aspect of life for vegans, providing a platform for exchange of products and services that are verified 100% vegan and cruelty-free, uniting the global vegan community.
VeganNation will create a full vegan economy equipped with its own traceable cryptocurrency, a vegan product marketplace, online social platform, meal-sharing platform, and vegan-tech incubator — an overall ecosystem of activists working together to make an impact. VeganNation will be based on blockchain technology, using smart contracts to ensure a transparent supply chain and provide a designated coin to serve the community members in all their transactions. Upon joining the platform, members will be provided with a “Passport”, VeganNation’s digital wallet.
The ecosystem will include several components:
- Meal Sharing Platform: Members will be able to host vegan meals at home with other members, search and find vegan restaurants and great company wherever they are in the world. They will also be able to cook meals for delivery utilizing existing food delivery services.
- Online Content Sharing Platform: A one-stop-shop for all vegan news derived of user generated content including articles, blog posts, recipes and restaurant recommendations.
- E-commerce Platform: A vegan and environmentally sustainable online marketplace for products and services that facilitates transactions using the transparent, safe, blockchain-based VeganCoin currency.
- Meetup Platform: A network of VeganNation ambassadors offering people an opportunity to physically meet, converse, and organize offline activism.
- Innovation Incubator: A resource where vegan-tech innovators have access to vegan investors, entrepreneurs, funding opportunities and more.
The wise Fela Durotoye said ‘a nation is not defined by its borders, a nation is defined by adverse people who have been unified by a cause and a value system and who are committed to a vision for the type of society they wish to live in and give to the future generations to come.’” said Isaac Thomas, CEO and Co-founder of VeganNation. “In today’s digital age, individuals from around the globe can unite to create more than just a community, but a nation to create change.
The global vegan community is in need of support, and can truly benefit from a unified nation of like-minded people dedicated to the vegan way of life. VeganNation is the solution to making the vegan lifestyle more accessible, and giving them the power to make global change,” Thomas added.
VeganNation will launch the meal sharing and content platforms in May of 2018. Early pioneers of VeganNation will be able to acquire the VeganCoin in the pre-sale at the end of February 2018. The official ICO for VeganCoin will be at the end of March, along with the launch of the ‘Passport’ digital wallet.
