Watugot is going to be a market place for retail stores to compete against each other with exciting offers & discounts. Users will be able to see offers and discounts based on location, categories and keywords. Just like the pi community which is global, Watugot is also going to be global phenomena whereby allowing users to search for offers & discounts across the globe. It primarily aims at catering to the great downfall of the retail store fronts due to a variety of reasons ranging from e-commerce boom to the ongoing pandemic.
Visit our app at https://watugot.org/
Disclaimer: Transactions only work in the Pi browser.
Please check the app on your mobile device as the app is optimised for mobile viewing.
Users will be able to search for discounts based on category and location and in course of time, users will also be able to earn pi’s from the stores.
Watugot will allow users to make payment by pi at the stores which accept pi as a mode of payment.
Users will have the freedom to sign up stores from their neighbourhood on to Watugot and in that way increasing the number of stores on the Watugot platform where users can get offers and discounts. Users will be able to add a store using Watugot website specially designed for this purpose besides the app. Pioneers who onboard stores on to our platform will be called Watizens and they will receive 25% of the profits we earn from that store on our platform. The more stores you add in your country, the more you can earn. The payment will be done real time and payments will start once we officially launch the app after beta testing.
Watugot is a registered company in India and we have been working on this project for the last couple of years and was looking for a ideal cryptocurrency which could be used as a base currency to enable transactions and since pi network has a huge customer database globally, we can reach out our product to the market in a quick span of time and both teams could benefit mutually. Processes are in place to file for Copyright & trademark. Please check our website at www.watugot.net for more info.
Add on features:
The app also has a feature for barter trade which will again be powered by pi currency and the transaction cost will be bare minimum. Users will be able to trade used and new goods against pi thereby not only creating value for pi but also increasing the pi community at large.
The app is almost complete as a product and we need to incorporate the pi sdk into our platform and conduct extensive testing so that we don’t leave any stone untouched.

We are nearing the completion of front end and going to start with the backend in a few days time.The front end should be complete before 18th August.
We have a two co- founders, an investor, development team & financial advisors in place and we are going at a steady pace to get this accomplished.
Retail stores find it extremely difficult to conduct ad campaign and there is currently no good strategy in place where they can maximise their spend on advertising and by Watugot offering their free services to list retail stores on our platform, they get visibility to a larger audience of the likes of 23+ million users.
Plan of Action:
Watugot is a two step process in enabling pi being accepted on a mass scale. The first step is to enable users to avail discount and offers from stores through the app and in moving forward accomplish the much larger task of accepting pi as the currency for day to day transactions against goods and services at tied up stores.
We have a whole lot of scalability plans in place as well which will be added in the coming months and years after the launch of the app.
Glimpse into scalability:
Same day shipping is a tough task. However with local stores being signed up on the platform, we can showcase their entire product line with live inventory, so that users can search for products in their nearby stores and place orders on the app. By signing up with a local delivery partner we can have the goods shipped to their doorstep the very same day.
*** Feasibility of this feature is being studied carefully.
The project is made for people and it will be grown by people as they will be the force to add the retail store fronts on the app and they will be rewarded accordingly for their time and effort.
We want to make life easier for people which includes both users of pi network and businesses.
FYI- There is currently no app on a global level allowing retail storefronts to showcase their offers & discounts for free and with a strong Pi community we can make the impossible, possible.
