- VeganNation is gaining adoption, with more than 65,000 businesses already signed up to its marketplace.
- The three exchange listings will ensure security of funds, allow account creation, and also allow easy purchases with GreenCoin.
- VeganNation is the true option for all consumers in search of an eco-friendly marketplace.
VeganNation is a UK subsidiary of an Israeli startup, SIPUP. It was founded by Isaac Thomas as the first blockchain in the world with a marketplace where a global vegan community could connect with organizations, individuals, and businesses with an interest in Vegan restaurants and stores where transactions on goods ranging from fashion, food, wellness, and health can be carried out within its green payment system. In a recent announcement, it noted that its native token, the GreenCoin (GRNC), will be listed on three global cryptocurrency exchanges, which are Liquid, FlowBTC, and Bittrex. This will ensure that the over 65,000 businesses and users that have signed up with the platform have easy access to the GRNC token.
Why the choice of the three exchanges?
Considering the fact that cryptocurrency transactions are meant to be virtual and conducted with ease, VeganNation made the choice of Liquid exchange which enables its users to buy and sell crypto coins/tokens with fiat. This will ensure that the VeganNation community can easily purchase GRNC with fiat regardless of where they are located, thereby increasing mass adoption. Also, the Bittrex exchange is the most trusted exchange with unmatched security for cryptocurrency transactions and is ranked 23rd for spot trading according to CoinMarketCap. FlowBTC also offers free wallets to crypto users, which gives room for new users in the Vegan ecosystem to have a crypto account.
There is a big challenge in identifying marketplaces where consumers can shop sustainably considering the fact that search results for sustainable goods have surged by over 71% within five years according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (ICPC). With 60% of consumers willing to shop in environmentally friendly locations because of increased global warming, there is a need for VeganNation since present mainstream platforms like Burger King and Baskin-Robbins have not provided the alternatives.
VeganNation is the solution
With the launch of the VeganNation app, consumers can easily browse through business directories within the app to see all the eco-business-friendly organizations and stores within their locations. Users are also rewarded for their engagement within the app which includes purchases, content, and business-to-business activities by receiving the GreenCoin as incentives.
Isaac Thomas said:
“Being one of the first vegan crypto coins, we believe by listing on multiple exchanges, we can disrupt the vegan world and together create a more sustainable lifestyle.”
“Our company is passionate about spreading our values, and we hope our app can create a better future for our planet.”
The VeganNation app was recently launched in the U.S. for U.S. consumers only, and the GRNC will be used for transactions within the app at the moment. The app will be open to the global market soon.
