Indian eCommerce till now has been defined in terms of awesome shipping experience and great deals. Companies operated in a highly centralized way to achieve that. In the process they just competed with the brick and mortar retails, burning money at an incredible rate. They had to, and they are continuing to. May be they will keep burning because brick and mortar stores are not going to go away.
But its not about companies, their business models and how they sustain themselves or making money. Its sometimes about doing the right thing. Its about bringing a vision to reality. Thats what internet did. It decentralized the generation and distribution of information, so that no one individual is powerful enough to manipulate it.
And thats what tradus is about. Decentralization of the economic activity. Its about a platform where every seller and buyer is important. Its about building the trust in the community, building trust in internet. And who are we competing against? No one. Because our vision is that what we are doing, what we are building is opening up the entire country to the power of internet, to the power of decentralization. We want to take the economic activity multi folds ahead, not only for a single indian/entity but for the whole lot of them. Brick and Mortar is not our competitor, but our partner.
