Powering Decentralized
P2P Commerce

Vera is an open protocol that enables the peer-to-peer exchange of physical assets on the blockchain.

The Vera vision:

The most cost-efficient P2P commerce infrastructure that empowers billions of businesses, brands, and consumers.

Reinvent retail.

Transform the global economy.

Deliver access to consumer markets.

"If Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network to allow online payments sent between strangers without relying on a financial institution, then Vera will enable peer-to-peer networks to allow physical goods to be exchanged between parties without relying on a big tech oligopoly."

Vera is for everyone

Buying, selling, or loaning things between strangers should be as easy and cheap as sending an email no matter where you live, what you do, or how much you earn.


Vera will be accessible to anyone with an entry-level NFC-enabled smartphone and data connectivity.

Smart Tag Ready

Vera integrates with existing wireless RFID & NFC smart tags technology standards for exchanging data.

Verified by Oracles

Vera uses decentralized blockchain oracles to ensure secure connectivity between real-world data and blockchain smart contracts.

Fast & Low Cost

Vera eliminates middleman fees and will be more efficient and low cost compared to existing decentralized oracle solutions.


Vera will foster an ecosystem of products and services to make decentralized commerce a competitive alternative.


Vera is a protocol built on a blockchain with security and privacy in mind.

Vera is led by a diverse team

In order to build the world's first decentralized P2P commerce network, Vera has formed a team passionate about furthering Satoshi Nakamoto's vision and having diverse skillsets in e-commerce, IoT, embedded systems, data science, and blockchain technologies.
