Innovation of TiFi
TiFi adopted the new slogan “The Innovation of Landing e-Commerce On Blockchain” a week ago on TiFi website. This means TiFi is building a new e-Commerce platform based on blockchain technology that nobody has created before. This is the key to support sustainable growth during the unpredictable market.
TiFi’s innovation is not only to make crypto as a payment currency for e-Commerce, but also use blockchain technologies to track and handle the whole workflow of e-Commerce. It will give vendors and customers more transparency and security for online transactions, also it helps traditional vendors, and merchants who are doing great on web2 can easily migrate their business to web3 to gain new customers.
TiFi has invented new ideas with blockchain to represent products and track the workflow that may happen in e-Commerce. For example, when you buy 2 pounds of apples in a grocery store, the apples here have no difference with another pound of apple from e-Commerce point of view, so it can be represented by a fungible token (which interface is defined by ERC-20). If customers want to buy an artwork or other products that are unique from any other products, they can use NFT (non-fungible token, which interface is defined by ERC-721).
EIP-1155 has proposed a concept of flexible token to cover fungible token and NFT, as well as “Semi-Fungible Token”. It defines the interface that can be used to represent the products. However, the real-world workflow for e-Commerce should allow blockchain technologies to define the state of the product(s). Different states have different sets of operations allowed for the products. For example, the item that is in transit for delivery cannot be traded or transferred to another owner. So TiFi invented the concept of “stateful universal token” to make blockchain fully support e-Commerce.
TiFi Bank Lending Platform Updates
TiFi Bank will provide a lending platform like Aave or Compound. This is a premium feature that very few DEX offers. It allows people to provide cryptos as collateral and borrow cryptos. The collaterals are similar to the property when you apply for property loans. There is LTV(Loan to Value) for the loans you can get. The basic workflow of the lending platform is as follows:
Here are the ETA of the launch of the new products:
TiFi Bank v4 — Lend & Borrow : Nov 15, 2022.
TiFi Allverse Alpha Version: Dec 20, 2022
