    Token Mechanics: 3

    • This project currently does not have an MVP.
    • The BUY token will be used to stake tokens for the participation of microdistribution centers and delivery operators, and as a form of payment within the platform. The BUY token will also yield dividends to investors.
    • Microdistributors will be incentivized with tokens to store goods through a higher percentage of delivery costs.
    • Token Supply: 1,000,000,000 BUY
    • 1 BUY = $0.11 USD

    User Adoption: 2

    • The idea behind Buying.com’s project is clear and straightforward and has the potential to provide a lot of value to manufacturers, businesses, and consumers. A major barrier the project will have to overcome to facilitate platform adoption is competitors like Amazon and Walmart.
    • There is a decent amount of buzz around this project. Buying.com has over 14000 followers on Twitter, over 15000 followers on Facebook, and over 24000 members in the Telegram group chat. The project seems to have a solid amount of engagement on its posts, but whether the engagement is legitimate and organic is uncertain.
