Old, centralized marketplaces like eBay have a monopoly on your reputation and feedback. Ink Protocol believes in a decentralized future, where you can build reputation and take it with you everywhere you sell. We imagine a world where you can take your eBay reputation and use it to sell on Craigslist. Ink Protocol also has built-in escrow and 3rd party dispute resolution to make P2P marketplace payments safe and easy!

Ink Protocol is developed by Listia, an 8 year old VC-backed company with a thriving existing marketplace. Listia.com will become the first marketplace that is fully integrated with Ink, giving it an immediate use-case (10M registered users and over 100M items trade since 2009)!

XNK Token distribution is planned for February 2018. You can join the Air Drop and Bounty programs though Listia (see details below) and start earning future tokens right now!

Listia Inc. Investors:














AIR DROP + BOUNTIES

All verified members that have earned Listia Credits (excluding purchased credits) from now until launch can convert their credits directly to XNK after the token distribution event. Sign up on Listia to get 1,000-5,000+ Credits immediately. You can then earn more by selling your used goods on Listia, inviting friends or through various activities, but all you need to do is sign up to participate in the air drop and start earning additional bounties. Thanks!

Listia registration: Sign up on Listia or search the app store for Listia in order to join the air drop. The Ink Protocol website doesn't have a way to join the air drop.

Very excited to be a part of this project. Ink is one of the few projects that, upon release, will be backed by an established company and marketplace. Our users will be transacting with Ink directly when they buy and sell on Listia. This brings adoption, usage, and liquidity to Ink immediately. The many ecosystems that will spawn off from this project will be amazing as well: feedback/reputation aggregators, mediator registry, and policy registry.

Looking forward to bringing Ink to life!

Great question! Let's get technical!

First, reference our Whitepaper to get a good overview of our mission and how we plan on getting there.

At the Ethereum level, we will basically be using our Ink smart contract to drive our Ink transaction states:
https://paywithink.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Ink-State-Diagram.pdf

Our smart contract will be responsible for:

- Creation of transactions by the buyer
- Acceptance of transaction by the seller
- Handle disputes between buyer and seller
- Request mediator interaction if necessary
- Allow mediator to determine the outcome of the transaction (where the Ink goes)
- Allow buyer to leave feedback on the transaction once it's completed
- Linking accounts/addresses so that reputation aggregators will be able to combine reputation between 2 or more accounts/addresses.
- Authorize an agent to create/progress/complete transactions on your behalf. This is useful more marketplaces (like Listia) to make transactions on behalf of our users.

The functions outlined in the state diagram are the actual functions we've implemented on our smart contract. Once we get closer to the launch, we will be publishing our smart contract on GitHub.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

Great description of the tech! Just wanted to add that Ink has built-in 3rd party mediation support.. so the contract handles escrow just alike a centralized marketplace might do it.. so it's great for buying and selling from people you don't know online and in forums etc.

Had some questions on our Telegram about how to join the air drop. Posting here to clear up the confusion.

To join the air drop, you just have to register on our existing marketplace app at Listia.com or search for Listia on the iOS or Google Play app stores.

Sorry there's no direct link form the Ink project website.

Cool enjoy!

You don't have to register again.. only verified accounts can convert credits to INK token so you can just continue to use your existing account and even try to earn some more credits by listing and selling some old things you don't use anymore. Or you can check out the goals, promos and offers throughout the site to earn credits on your account. Thanks for asking!

Tokens will be granted at the end of the ICO.. every verified user account will be able to convert them at that time.

Yes, Listia is building Ink. Ink will become the new main currency on Listia, replacing Listia Credits. So it has an immediate use-case right from the start, unlike most tokens Smiley

Also, the team is building standalone apps so anyone can use Ink on Craigslist, FB Marketplace, etc..  many marketplaces could benefit from adding a reputation system like Ink. Long term, we hope other marketplaces will implement Ink as well! In fact, anyone can build a new marketplace using the Ink protocol and get up and running very quickly  Cool

Sure! So the bounties are currently all tied to your Listia account, so that is a prerequisite. However, we are thinking through some non-Listia ones too.

- You can sell your old stuff, toys, games, clothes, phones, anything.
- Invite friends through the Listia referral program
- Check out the daily special offers
- Complete daily goals

hope that helps

If you were affected by the Confido scam, please take a look.. we are going to try and help out as much as we can. The thing is, our projects were quite similar form the start in some ways and we shared the same vision for decentralized marketplaces. It was so sad and shocking to see what happened to everyone Sad

It won't make everyone whole, but its a start, thanks!
