In 2020, retail e-commerce sales worldwide amounted to 4.28 trillion US dollars and global e-retail revenues are projected to grow to 5.4 trillion US dollars in 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA, Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Social Life Network, Inc. (OTC:WDLF) announced today a major upgrade to their e-commerce social marketplace will be rolled out to each of their TBI Licensees during the month of December, starting with the hunting, fishing and camping community on HuntPost.com
In competition with retailers like Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop, HuntPost, empowers small merchants that depend primarily on industry trade shows to sell their products and services, with an e-commerce social network to compete with big-box retailers that won’t carry their products because they’re too small to scale.
“In the same way Etsy.com enabled artisans to create value from their trade, HuntPost empowers sportsmen to sell via their goods and services on our upgraded platform," says Lynn Murphy, CEO of HuntPost. “Etsy, who trades on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol ETSY, has a market cap of more than $30 billion, and services a much smaller audience of vendors and merchants than our hunting, fishing and camping industry,” added Murphy.
“Our development team has been focused on delivering these major upgrades to the HuntPost e-commerce marketplace before the end of 2021,” said Ken Tapp, CEO of Social Life Network. “One of the most significant upgrades to our platform provides retailers the ability to sell their goods to consumers through a variety of new ERC token types as well as the new WDLF Token,” added Tapp.
According to Statista market research, in 2020 retail e-commerce sales worldwide amounted to 4.28 trillion US dollars and e-retail revenues are projected to grow to 5.4 trillion US dollars in 2022. https://www.statista.com/statistics/379046/worldwide-retail-e-commerce-sales/
“HuntPost is one of nine TBI licensees that will receive the major upgrades this month,” noted Social Life Network’s President, Todd Markey. “With the 2022 trade show season approaching quickly, our Decentral Life division has been laser focused on supporting the growing demand by HuntPost retailers wanting the ability to sell their products and services online and at trade shows, using cryptocurrencies as payment.”
Social Life Network announced on August 16th, 2021, the new Decentral Life division will be focused on upgrading their SaaS platform to a global decentralized social marketplace and their own cryptocurrency project.
The Decentral Life project aims to address four main objectives outlined on the Decentral Life website @ www.WDLF.life
- Create a decentralized global social networking platform for user privacy, content control, and universal connectivity to all decentralized networking platforms of the future.
- Financially empower network users by rewarding their activity with crypto-loyalty points that can be used to make purchases on the network or converted to WDLF Tokens to be used on globally accessible cryptocurrency exchanges.
- Create and launch a Decentral Life Token that can be used across all licensee networks so that users can convert their crypto-loyalty points into WDLF Tokens for staking.
- File with the SEC a registered initial coin offering so that tokens can be sold to investors and a market can be created for the token on major cryptocurrency exchanges.
On November 30th, 2021 the company filed a DBA in the state of Nevada, to start operating the company under the name “Decentral Life” as soon as possible. The company aims to officially change the name from Social Life Network, Inc. to Decentral Life, Inc. on January 1st, 2022.
