Preview period attracted major traffic from Vietnam, Indonesia, US, Brazil and Nigeria.
“Official sales from external vendors will be organised by the end of 2018. Before that we decided to start platform probation with Storiqa’s products to test and check the smooth marketplace operations.” – says Ruslan Tugushev, Storiqa’s CEO and founder. Storiqa has an involved community of 67,000 members that chose the merchandise design, and as a result three t-shirts were produced in limited series, with the price of 19990 STQ.
The marketplaces focuses on quality craft goods produced by small-medium sized businesses. “We chose this niche with aim to support SME (small-medium sized enterprises) trading out of local market. With our services they can be concentrated on production. We do help them with the sale of their products overseas.” – adds Ruslan Tugushev, Storiqa’s CEO and founder.
“STQ has real products and services on the platform supporting the token itself whereas no other crypto has that. We want to give a notion to our token holders that STQ has a firm basement and this bridge can bring e-commerce to a new level. No financial borders and extra fees for transactions.”
