Dether is the world’s first peer-to-peer ether network. It enables anyone who has a smartphone to buy and sell ether using cash and spend it at physical stores listed on the Dether map.
Dether creates a worldwide ecosystem of ether buyers, sellers and physical stores willing to trade ether for fiat cash and accept it as a means of payment. Dether provides the infrastructure for people to embrace Ethereum technology in their everyday lives. Dether is available on any smartphone. No bank account is needed to buy and sell ether. No credit or debit card is needed to spend ether at physical stores.
Dether offers the unique ability to let anyone safely buy and sell ether anywhere, anytime, with cash. Because we believe that Ethereum won’t know mass adoption until it’s easily and quickly accessible to anyone on Earth, we decided to create the first Dapp that brings the key solution in order to interact with the Ethereum blockchain from anywhere in the world.
Our belief is that the beauty and power of the Blockchain technology should be easily accessible to all. We’ve decided to put all of our energy to build the first trustless solution that will allow anyone to be able to interact with the blockchain no matter who you are, where you are, and without the need for a middleman.
. The fastest and easiest way for anyone to buy ether
Dether offers the unique opportunity to have access to ether within minutes by using a phone and spending cash.
• A cross-border market for ether tellers
Any ether owner can officially become a seller on Dether and benefit from a new, profitable activity. Ether sellers can now become mobile “PTM” (People Teller Machine) by being on the Dether map and selling ether for fiat currency anywhere in the world at any time. Sellers are free to set up their own ETH/fiat rate and their own fees.
Dether users are able to discover shops near them that:
Users are able to spend their ether without the need for a bank account or a credit/debit card. For specific needs, users are able to type the kind of physical stores they are looking for (e.g.: “restaurant”) in their city to see which ones are accepting ether.
. Spend ether at local stores, shops and businesses
On Dether, users discover physical stores near them that accept ether.
As Ethereum popularity is quickly increasing throughout the world, more and more businesses are accepting ether.
Today, buying a Subway sandwich in Buenos Aires with cryptocurrency, a deli sandwich in Melbourne or a camera in Japan, is now possible. Tomorrow, the Dether map will give everyone the opportunity to discover all of the places nearby where ether is accepted.
• Adding their own shops to the Dether map and expanding their businesses
Shop owners can let the whole world know that they’re now accepting ether! As the number of ether buyers and tellers that use the Dether map will grow rapidly, physical stores are also able to be part of the ecosystem by being listed on the Dether map.
Thanks to an auction mechanism, shops will compete with other businesses nearby for better visibility on the Dether map. Similarly, like on any search engine or promotional marketplace, physical stores are able to bet on specific key words and expressions to be more visible to Dether users on the map.
In addition, Dether will offer a complete back-office system to any shop wishing to accept ether, in order to manage their liquidity and keep up with cryptocurrency fluctuations, thus having the possibility to directly convert received ether into fiat currency.
