Project concept description
Freldo is the global and decentralized ecosystem linking service providers and customers, based on the technology of blockchain and smart contracts.
The Freldo platform is a symbiosis of a social networking for communication and a trading platform for doing business.
Market problem relevance and methods of its solution by the project
Despite the rapid development of the service industry, to start generating sales, to make a successful entry into these markets is not easy. This task is especially difficult for beginning small business representatives, whose problems are not only a lack of resources, but also a lack of knowledge about the state of the market.
A typical phenomenon was the non-optimal use of small business resources.
As a rule, to enter the market, small businesses have to spend unnecessarily large
sums of money. But even after such investments, significant amounts are spent monthly only to support the work of a store or an information guide.
In addition, small businesses often face problems created by bureaucracy. It carries unnecessary costs when making payments. There are other risks and costs that reduce the efficiency of small businesses and their competitiveness in the market.
Taking advantage of existing sites to find customers and solve other marketing problems, small businesses face a number of serious problems, namely:
- High commissions and various fees for users of sites and payment systems.
- Much of the money earned by small businesses is thus spent on the payment of basic marketing services, financial transactions, currency conversions, etc.
- The buyer's lack of confidence in the seller. Most customers prefer to order services from proven companies. However, the existing sites do not allow the buyer to obtain quality assurance.
- Small business services. Because of this, many customers simply ignore such suppliers, not wishing to take risks. Therefore, small businesses are in unequal competitive conditions.
- Impossibility to present your service in a qualitative way. Often, on existing sites, small business receives very limited opportunities to describe its services for the placement of photo and video materials. The client does not have the opportunity to see the real opinions.
- Technical imperfection of most existing sites. In particular, it is impossible to automate the work of an online store.
- Expensive marketing. Only large corporations can benefit from the offered opportunities, which easily win in the competitive struggle with small business.
The situation that has developed on the market also creates a number of serious problems for buyers, including customers’ services which are focused on small businesses:
A potential customer easily finds on the Internet the offers of large corporations. However, searching for unique products provided by small businesses is difficult. In many cases, the services of this segment are not represented at all in online stores.
There is not enough presentation material. Often, small business services are presented so poorly that a potential client cannot receive objective information about the quality of the product and its essence. As a result, the buyer refuses to purchase, turning their search to the proposals of large corporations.
It is impossible to verify the reliability of customer feedback on the services offered. Of the Internet-resources often published, there are only those reviews that are beneficial to the supplier. Often they are organized by the company itself and mislead the client.
Many Internet sites require prepayment, but do not provide any guarantees.
The developers of Freldo have set themselves the goal of eliminating all the major problems that small business today faces in the online space.
In particular, we are talking about the power of feedback, the high cost of advertising on popular Internet resources, the existing distrust of potential customers to service providers. Freldo also solves problems in the field of pricing, simplifies the calculations, which positively affects both the financial condition of small businesses and the wallet of ordinary consumers.
The Freldo network is now exploring who to transition to using blockchain technology. Thanks to these modern technologies, it will be possible to establish direct communication between the seller and the buyer, excluding any interference or influence of intermediaries.

Project products and technologies description
The Freldo platform has the following key features:
To find necessary services, users of the Freldo network can apply a number of
available sorts and filters in the network.
Freldo offers such filters as "Remoteness from your location", "Rating," "Price," "Category," etc.
Every Freldo user can get a financial benefit from the active use of the network.
For the invited participant, both client and business, the user is guaranteed to receive a free certificate, which is then used when paying for services of a number of entrepreneurs.
If your feedback is useful to the participants and with their help a new transaction will be concluded, you are guaranteed to receive remuneration to your referral account.
The Affiliate program allows earning without active participation in a network.
To assess the objectivity of the authors of publications, Freldo developers will initially introduce a special trust rating for business and consumers.
For greater objectivity, the system will retain complete anonymity of people expressing their consent or disagreement with the ratings.
To resolve disputes, Freldo offers the way, free from complex and lengthy procedures with the reference to some third-party arbiter.
Stimulation of participants of Freldo network
For all its participants, Freldo offers a number of incentives that help increase the activity of both small and medium-sized businesses and ordinary consumers.
Desktop and mobile versions
The FreldoApp mobile application brings the user to the Amazon web service (AWS). Buyers and Sellers will be able to receive real-time notifications of new transactions, reviews, and news. For this, AmazonPinpoint and SNS technologies are used.
Payment methods for services
The consumers will be able to make payments in PayPal, used as a means of paying in bitcoins and an agreement with the supplier to be paid in any way convenient for both parties. In the system, using the system’s own cryptocurrency, FreldoCoin, will allow you to save money on commissions when transferring funds and converting.
It is assumed that payment inside Freldo will be carried out directly, without intermediaries. Thus it will be possible to use various assets and currencies (fiat, FRECN, BTC, ETH, etc.).
Stage of development and development strategy (Road Map)
Freldo is working business social network which unites business owners and their customers. Platform is used for ordering services and goods, all orders can be paid using Freldo platform, every user can share news, leave comments, leave feedback about used businesses. Users receive reward for comments due to Freldo terms and conditions.
Freldo is operating for 2 years. Freldo Inc, registered in Canada in 2011, is located in Toronto, Ontario.
According to GitHub, for the last half a year the activity of project development is low. Latest commit a day ago
Blockchain importance in the project
Due to the blockchain technology, security is ensured with the safety of user data, and also when money transfers are made.
With blockchain technology, high transaction speed is associated with low financial costs.
Freldo will present a number of templates of smart contracts in which all parties will be linked directly and equality between all participants of the system will be ensured. Smart contracts also simplify the procedure of transactions, save time and money on commissions.
Freldo developers pay so much attention to the development of this direction and create their own modern and reliable block-platform.
The description of platform blockchain technology is superficial.

There is no investment in the project.
Market competitive environment
The total world amount of annual transactions of the consumer market - $49,8 trillion out of them 0,003% is carried out in cryptocurrencies.
The world's online trade demonstrates a high dynamic of development. The total turnover of online stores in 2017 it reached 2 trillion. And in 2018, according to preliminary forecasts, this figure will grow to 2.24 trillion dollars.
Today, approximately 1.66 billion people all over the world order goods and services through the Internet. Annually, this audience grows by an average of 16%.
According to BI (Business Insider) report, over the period 2015-2020 the annual average growth of mobile online payments in the amount of 40% is expected, the volume of such payments will grow to $128 billion by 2021, and the number of people making payments will grow at the same rate and will make up about 150M people by 2021.
EBAY, Amazon, Aliexpress, etc. are indirect competitors among global marketplaces, but for today they didn’t adopt blockchain and opportunity to pay with crypto currency.
Freldo claims to get significant competitive advantage with the use of blockchain-technology and cryptocurrency payments.
Bob's Repair and OpenBazaar are the closest competitors. But BobRepair deals with construction and repair specialist. Freldo deals with all kinds of business owners. Absolute advantage of Freldo is the atmosphere of trust established between the participants in communication.
OpenBazaar is fully decentralized it is prone to darknet-like transactions because there is not monitoring and screening of postings.
There are the following competitors on the decentralized market:
Bob's Repair - in the course of ICO $18M was raised, capitalization - n/d.
Storiqa – in the course of ICO $25M was raised, capitalization - $64,2M, ROI USD - 1.14x
INS Ecosystem - raised - $41,5M, capitalization - $23M, ROI USD - 0.30x
Soma - raised - $6M, capitalization - $0,8M, ROI USD - 0.20x
The Freldo system will also face the competitive fighting with both classical and cryptocurrency payment systems, which can be integrated in any trade sites. High daily volatility of cryptocurrencies over 10% is an additional risk of the project development (it may also touch FRECH token), as well as high fees of crypto currency conversion in fiat. The stability of good price is a very important aspect for online retail, since sellers have low marginality to 10%.
The largest MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, Alipay are indirect competitors among traditional payment systems, which actively study the opportunities of adopting blockchain-technologies into their systems. Decentralized payment systems Bitcoin, Ripple, IOTA, Zcash, Monero and others are also competitors. In addition, projects with the use of stablecoins present on the cryptocurrency market, which volatility rate is within 8%.
In the near future leading cryptocurrencies plan provide buyers with single payment solution, where payment gateways will be integrated, which allow making payment not only in crypto currencies but also in fiat. However, the legislative regulation of the crypto currencies of majority of countries is in its infancy.
The main advantages of the project are:
- In Fredlo the subject of communication is centered around services provided by small businesses. And you can create groups of sellers and their customers, concentrated in such small locations as a small city, quarter or district.
- The project developers will introduce all popular cryptocurrencies as payment methods (deposits and withdrawals)
- Quick and convenient search functionality using specified parameters
- No fake reviews (users recommend services to friends and relatives, which means they are not incentivized to deceive)
- Order of goods and services directly from their Freldo account
- Safe transactions and transparency thanks to blockchain and smart contracts
