What is Avalon?
Avalon is a premier members-only platform, and the first GPO (group purchasing organization) that represents the cryptocurrency consumer-base and its purchasing power. The Avalon Platform will allow members to realize discounts on goods and services they purchase, as well as the opportunity to earn tokens by participating in promotions, scanning proof of purchases, playing games, utilizing p2p smart contracts and so much more, all housed under one exclusive roof.
What will the team do it ?
The team is dedicated to running Avalon like a business, while marrying all the attributes that make cryptocurrency great. By providing our members a central, collaborating location in a decentralized world, we allow the greatest technology since the internet to begin forming a face that can interact with traditional business world and such reap all the benefits that come along with it, all while keeping the individual anonymous. Through our development team, our members and our significant leverage, we can connect cryptocurrency to seemingly endless avenues of new utility, all while beginning to re-shape how the general public views this technology we know and love.
What are the advantages of Avalon?
Avalon will take many of the innovative consumer-beneficial ideas you already know and love like the discount section of AAA/ARC Europe, the paid-to-shop model of eBates, the group discount model of Groupon/Mass drop, the “Paid Surveys” model and marry it with some you may not be as familiar with; the GPO model (massive list of businesses – online and brick and mortar – that discount all their products to us) all while having cryptocurrency be both the infrastructure and the beneficiary. It’s really quite simple, check out this video to see it in action.
What Exactly Is A GPO? What Does GPO Stand For?
Wikipedia lists a GPO as: A group purchasing organization (GPO) is an entity that is created to leverage the purchasing power of a group of businesses to obtain discounts from vendors based on the collective buying power of the GPO members.
In simple terms; you and many other cryptocurrency users join Avalon, becoming members. Avalon, as your advocate approaches a business, notifies the business that our large membership base would be more inclined to purchase their goods and services if they were offered an incentive (usually a discounted price across the board), the business agrees to offer a discount just for Avalon members and Avalon agrees to point its members in the direction of that business.
Since the business does not have to accept cryptocurrency, it is a risk free way for a business to obtain new business from cryptocurrency users without any infrastructure change “at the register”.
What Is The Role Of The Member Of A GPO?
The member joins Avalon with the intention of saving money on things he/she already purchases or things he/she would be more inclined to purchase if they were discounted. Each member who joins the group makes Avalon stronger and stronger in its ability to negotiate the best prices on the best goods/services.
Avalon membership platform is an exclusive membership platform leveraging the purchasing power of the world’s largest untapped consumer-group.
