Idea name: Status Shopping - A decentralized and private shopping.
Description: Status already has a financial structure (cryptocurrencies) and features of sending and receiving, in addition to the Keycard.
It would be very interesting if the Status became a “shopping” for those who wanted to sell and buy using cryptocurrencies (and even credit cards). I think that even using a bank credit card, Status would continue to provide reasonable privacy for users. Of course, at this point of discussion it would be something to be considered - not necessarily implemented in the final project.
Target user: all users
Why this is important: WhatsApp recently announced its plans to make the popular messaging app a place to buy and sell (video below).
When I see the Status and all the existing technological structure, I simply ask myself: “why not?”. There is a wallet, there are cryptocurrencies … There is just no structure for someone to build their list of products and services for sale. I know there is a desire to create bots for Status, and they can be very useful in this shopping feature.
I believe that a possible structure to list a catalog of services and products for sale can be done through an extension.
If you think this is a great idea and know how to implement it, consider posting a project proposal on Assemble.
