Understanding Rounds & TopUps As A Merchant On Peerwallet
On Peerwallet, Merchants are those who provide funding services for users, what this means is that when a user want to fund his or her account, they can only do that from the Market place, and from that Market place, only approved merchants would be listed.
Merchants would be able to list their own payment gateway and accept payment on whatever payment method at their own rate. But, how do Merchants themselves get the balance?
There are two methods how Merchants can fund their account
1) From Other Merchants: As an approved merchant who is running low on funds, you can simply just go to the Market place and buy from other Merchants.
2) Merchant Rounds: Merchant rounds are how Peerwallet add to the total amount in supply and the value is determined quarterly.
The Merchant rounds are for approved merchants only and this is done on a discounted pattern, the discount is also determined by the volume of demand and supply.
So how this actually works is this;
The movement of funds on the Market place is an actual value of a stable coin which is then transferred from users on Peerwallet. People actually hold the coin balance when they load their Peerwallet balance. So, instead of the whole Cryptocurrency management, Blockchain security and the rest, we created the Peerwallet platform where everything is done without you even downloading a wallet. Also with the platform, users are able to transfer from Fiat to Crypto or Crypto to Fiat without any extra effort.
Merchants are those who connect to Peerwallet and then provide the service for users who want to load their wallet.
Round Value Determinant:
The value of what amount would join the total circulation is determined by the following factors;
1) How many transactions
2) Total fees burnt
3) Total users
4) Marketing budget
5) Additional partners & ambassadors.
These factors would determine how much would be available for the next round which would then be shared amongst the available merchants willing to place a bid for the round.
The Round Process:
