Offline retail's getting a makeover

Traditional brick-and-mortar retail is a $25 trillion industry, capturing at least 90% of all retail spending. This generates a lot of data. Under the Carry Protocol, your transaction data becomes a commodity you control.

It’s time for a change

Carry delivers real incentives that enable consumers, merchants and advertisers alike.
Merchant advantages
  • Accept virtual currency in brick-and-mortar shops
  • Process payments quickly
  • Incentivize returning customers with digital coupons and custom Branded Tokens
Consumer advantages
  • Own their transaction data
  • Anonymously monetize it
  • Collect digital coupons and loyalty points
All of this is securely protected, and works seamlessly with fiat, credit or crypto payments.
Advertiser advantages
  • Utilize consolidated offline payment data
  • Reach their audience with no advertising fees

The CRE Token

CRE (pronounced "carry") is the main token in the Carry Protocol. Consumers can use it as currency to pay merchants within the Carry ecosystem. Merchants use it to create branded tokens or smart contracts. Consumers receive CRE from 3rd party advertisers, as payment for accessing the consumers’ transaction data blockchains. And this is all acheived without lifting the veil of anonymity.
1
Pay at the store
Pay with CRE, ETH, BTC, a credit card or cash. All while enjoying the brick-and-mortar shopping experience.
2
Share your data
Choose to share your anonymous transaction information, or keep it private.
3
