RAIR Dapp Staking Proposal (Sony/Astar incubator graduate)

GM Astar community, it is a pleasure to be here!

I’m Garrett, founder and CTO of RAIR Technologies and would like to apply for the Astar dApp Staking listing. We learned so much as a graduate of the inaugural Sony/Astar Incubator cohort and would like to take the next step forward by joining the Astar dApp staking ecosystem under the NFT section.

Project Overview

Our core value proposition in the Web3 space is the unique pairing of NFT marketplace technology with encrypted streaming DRM (digital rights management) technology.

  • Our project creates private label Web3 Marketplace Infrastructure. 50+ documented API endpoints to mint, manage royalties, and stream encrypted content. This is paired with a beautiful frontend experience optimized for desktop and mobile.

  • Full integration of all smart contract infrastructure on Astar EVM. Full support via Alchemy API, marketplace order routing engine, minting and metadata engines.

  • Ongoing deployments for Anime focused marketplace, eLearning marketplace, Carbon Credit focused marketplace, and Real Estate focused marketplace. Negotiating to use Astar as source underlying blockchain over Eth mainnet, Polygon, etc. for reliability, cost, and beneficial ecosystem reasons.
