Raghu Bala, PhD

Buying.com is a decentralized, e-Commerce Network with cybermediation platform features, allowing businesses and individuals access to products at wholesale prices. Furthermore, Buying.com leverages existing distributors along with its own micro distribution network in order to achieve two-hour threshold delivery time for fast-moving consumer goods. The white paper gives an overview of the Buying.com and its unique value proposition and expands on the technical aspects behind the platform. Specifically, it covers the Algorand blockchain technology used by Buying.com and its Pure Proof of Stake consensus. It provides a solution to the problem of multi-objective optimization of last-mile logistics and discusses several aspects of platform governance as well as the crypto economics of the ecosystem.

Why BUY
What is The BUY Coin?
BUY token, based on The BUY Algorand blockchain technology. It is the core asset of the Buying Platform.

Decentralization

The project aims at decentralizing e-commerce operations in the following ways:

  • Group Buying: Buyers in the Buying.com ecosystem can form buying groups to increase volume of purchases thereby creating bulk purchasing power and driving down costs.
  • Hyperlocal Micro-Fulfillment: Just as anyone is allowed to convert their spare space into rentable space on AirBnB, any participant in Buying.com can now become a fulfillment partner by turning their spare garage space into a hyperlocal micro-fulfillment center. And similar to how Uber or Lyft enable every day to become livery drivers, any person with a valid driver’s license and a good track record can qualify to do deliveries in the network.

Blockchain

The Buying.com system runs on the Algorand blockchain. This blockchain is known for its speed, fair consensus algorithms and scalability. The BUY token is developed as an Algorand Standard Asset, or ASA. In addition, to facilitate ease of trading on Decentralized Exchanges, a wrapped version of the token called WBUY has been developed that runs on the Ethereum blockchain. The tokens have passed security audits by CoInspect.

The primary use case of the token is to help promote the BUY token is to encourage customer loyalty through the issuance of tokens as a reward for fulfillment orders placed. These rewards can be redeemed for goods and services purchased within the network. The blockchain is currently used to store rewards transactions in the form of immutable records.

Prime Protocol Value Proposition
There exists many pain points in today’s E-commerce System.
Buying.com’s Protocol will solve these.
E-commerce Reinvented
Buying.com is the first e-commerce protocol that allows consumers to buy direct from manufacturers wholesalers and distributors. It’s the next generation Decentralized E-Commerce Platform that harnesses the power of distributed ledger technology along with innovations in Bulk Pricing, Real-time Logistics, E-Commerce and Cryptocurrency.

Consumers and businesses want to receive discounts on large-purchase pricing. However, fulfillment for the number of MOQ purchases is more expensive than most individual consumers can afford.

WeBuy* – We leverage the purchasing power of millions of consumers and small businesses. Our Prime Protocol feature, WeBuy*, will hit MOQ levels of retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, or liquidators to offer the best possible pricing on products. Each individual will receive the best pricing by combining their purchasing power with other people interested in buying the same products.

Chargebacks are a multi-billion dollar per year commerce problem costing retailers billions.

Utilizing Buying.com’s Prime-Protect technology, transactions will be escrowed until customers receive goods and are satisfied with their cleared purchase. Funds release cleanly without any chargebacks to retailers.

Centralized warehousing limits the flow of products, increases the costs involved with shipping product, and increases the price to end consumers.

iStore* by leveraging latent space in warehouses, garages, and storefronts, individuals can become a part of Buying.com’s decentralized distribution network. Much like AirBnB turned houses and spare rooms into hotels, we plan on turning latent spaces into hyperlocal distribution points. The individuals that leverage their space will earn revenue by becoming a distribution node. This model can help smaller manufacturers of products without mass distribution scale more efficiently. If they choose to list their inventory on Buying.com, they will join a preexisting network of national products and have access to a hyperlocal distribution point within neighborhoods

Hyperlocal last mile delivery to consumers.

Much like Uber transformed ride sharing, our network of drivers and distributors form our hyperlocal distribution points. These distribution points help our ecosystem serve end consumers in the last-mile execution. We will do it faster and cheaper.

Retailers and e-commerce entrepreneurs are at a deficit of data, logistics, reach, and infrastructure to compete with many of today’s big e-commerce players. They are unable to keep up with the industry growth, and many sellers face mounting problems in trying to maintain or scale.

Buying.com’s Genesis* data tier will allow all retailers, e-commerce players, distributors, wholesalers, or peer-to-peer networks to upload their inventory. The asking price, condition, and description of every item in Genesis will be known. This information will be geo-fenced so that it is unique to each user’s location.

E-commerce delivery and speed.

E-commerce-on-Demand* combining Genesis* and our own IDeliver* infrastructure, many of today’s FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) will be ordered off the Buying.com app and delivered to a consumer’s door within 2hrs. This fast-moving delivery system will empower all e-commerce and retail players to not only compete, but in many cases, exceed other giants in the industry that have distinct advantages. Our advantages will be disruptive and transformative in the e-commerce sector.

OUR SOLUTION

Buying.com is poised to be a major player in the e-commerce space by disrupting the status quo, bringing about efficiencies in the ecosystem benefiting both the supply and demand sides of the equation. Utilizing state of the art distributed ledger technology (blockchain) provides Buying.com new asymmetric advantages that enables it to bring about market efficiencies which were not available in earlier generation platforms.

Groundbreaking Innovations

We plan to do this through the following groundbreaking innovations:

  • Microdistribution— We offer decentralization of e-commerce by turning every garage into a distribution center. In addition to distribution centers run by Buying.com, now anyone can become a node on the Buying.com network by staking tokens and leveraging existing storage in their garage to become a microdistribution center. This solves the last mile logistics issue that has plagued e-commerce for the longest time. It is similar to how Airbnb turns every spare room in a home to a hotel room, or how Uber leverages excess driving capacity to turn every automobile into a taxi.
  • Bulk Pricing— Enables consumers to receive direct from manufacturer pricing through bulk order quotes unlocked by achieving the Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ).
  • Real-Time Logistics— Leverages blockchain solutions to deliver real-time logistics data, provides transparent, smart, contract-enforced, audit trails, integrates PROXEUS, & protects users with data encryption such as the SHA-protocol that will keep information secured. Manufacturers, Businesses and Consumers will have seamless access to real-time shipping data to optimize dropshipping costs provided by a permissionless, public blockchain.
  • Cryptocurrency— Utilizes its own cryptocurrency as a token which is used for transactions on our system
  • Transparent and Auditable— We combine the best of blockchains to offer customers a digital ledger that offers a fraud-proof solution and auto-verifies transactions, leaving behind a transparent, immutable audit trail.

Federated Byzantine Agreement

The primary consensus algorithm used is the Federated Byzantine Agreement, as exemplified in the payment of dividends or staking by nodes. For node staking, the node operator will be a Microdistribution center or a Delivery operator, and they will be allowed to store or carry goods commensurate with their stakes. In other words, if Microdistribution center A stakes 50,000 tokens but Microdistribution center B only stakes 10000 tokens, then the former will be allowed to store 5x (five times) the value of merchandise compared with the latter

When packages are delivered to a buyer, if the package requires a delivery signature, that signature would be captured over the Buying.com mobile application for Delivery Partners. This Proof signature can be verified by the Buyer in a dispute over a mobile app. Without a signature when one is required, a transaction will not be approved.

Metcalfe’s Law

The Buying.com network with its Direct-to-Consumer approach in being able to aggregate purchases is akin to growing a network of users. The larger the population of buyers, the better the chances of fulfilling an MOQ deal opportunity. But how does one model the value of the Buying.com network?
For this, we can invoke Metcalfe’s Law,11 which states that the value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system (n2).

Current Implementation & Tokenomics

Buying.com will utilize Algorand’s ASC1 to keep track of order details. How we achieve this, is by storing all order details of a day, made to Buying.com, stored into one IPFS file. The hash of the IPFS file is stored in another IPFS file. The second IPFS file acts as an index file for finding the order details of a particular day. This second IPFS file has the first one’s hashes, mapped based on dates. Every time there’s an update to the second IPFS file, ie, end of each day, when the entire order details of a new day are added to one IPFS file and its hash generated and stored in the second file, the hash of the second IPFS file changes. Each of the changed hashes is stored inside our ASC1, as a global variable. This system of storage allows us to query the order details of any particular day, upon need.

Buying.com will utilize the Algorand Standard Assets protocol to launch BUY tokens on Algorand.ASA requires to set a few immutable asset parameters during the creation of a new asset.

1. Creator – buying.com (current address of the ASA creator on Algorand mainnet)
2. Asset Name – BUY TOKEN
3. Unit Name – BUY
4. Total -1 BILLION (maximum supply)
5. Decimals – 6 (divisible up to 6 decimal places, 0.000001 being the smallest unit of BUY)
