Swapit 1-Minute Intro
Easy to Use
Swapit allows you to easily take a photo (think built-in camera, photo gallery, etc), enter a title, description and price and publish the item. It takes less than 30 seconds to list an item you want to sell. Potential buyers nearby to be notified instantaneously. Combined with location-reference and immediate communication facilities, sales can be closed quickly and with ease.
Swapit provides notifications in a very immediate manner utilizing PUSH notifications to instantaneously alert users of new items and updates. That allows us to nourish a first-come-first-served culture for fast buying and selling of items with a very immediate approach.
As a seller it is great to let potential buyers know where you're located. So in the best case scenario, you can sell an item to your neighbor. While that's rather unlikely, a location reference on each sale allows buyers to gauge whether that's a convenient location for them to pick up the item or there is a place nearby to meet and complete the sale. This prevents a lot of unnecessary communication that would be required if the buyer did not know the location of the item that's on sale.
Swapit provides a comment system in the same way social networks do. Combined with our immediate PUSH notifications, the expected time-to-sale is optimized to a minimum.
Swapit allows direct person-to-person messaging that utilizes industry-leading PUSH notifications, so you’ll never miss a message to complete a sale.

Swapit Coin Explained
Why we need it and why it will be a success.
Powering a Community of 220,000 Traders
Swapit is a peer-to-peer marketplace app that allows people to trade second hand and new things with each other. Since its launch in June 2016, the Swapit community has grown to over 220,000 active traders worldwide. Swapit is most popular in Hong Kong, United States, Philippines, India, Indonesia and a dozen more countries. Until today, all transactions are made in cash, in person. More about Swapit: www.swapit.la
By introducing Swapit Coin we will be able to create smart contracts between buyers and sellers that are tokenized on the public blockchain. All transactions are being processed digitally based on the conditions set in the smart contract between the two parties.
Swapit Coin Use
At introduction of Swapit Coin to our marketplace, we will update our existing Swapit mobile app on Android and iOS. As a result, over 220,000 Swapit Coin wallets will be deployed to our community.
Every time a purchase is being made on Swapit, the user can pay for that item in Swapit Coins if he or she has a Swapit Coin balance. If there is no Swapit Coin balance, the equivalent in local currency is being charged via credit card, Android Pay or Apple Pay, and is being converted immediately into Swapit Coins at the current market rate. The Swapit Coins are then be used to pay for the item to complete the transaction.
After the ICO concludes, Swapit Coin will be traded publicly on EtherDelta. Furthermore, Swapit Coin will be listed on Cryptopia, Bittrex, Gatecoin and HitBTC.
Swapit Coins can also be purchased through the Swapit mobile app at the time of purchase of an item or at any time in between to simply top up the Swapit Wallet with Swapit Coins.
In 2016 over 170,000 traders posted items worth over USD 190 million and completed transactions worth over USD 140 million.
In 2017 over 220,000 traders posted items worth over USD 550 million and completed transactions worth over USD 200 million. To-Date.
To effectively supply the Swapit ecosystem a total of 1,000,000,000 Swapit Coins we will be minted and sold at 1 USD = 1 SWC. 71% of Swapit Coins are outright reserved that ecosystem to power the Swapit marketplace transactions. An additional 20% of Swapit Coins are reserved for ecosystem marketing such as discounts, vouchers, signup bonuses, referrals, bounty programs and other incentives.
