Merit Shop

pay with your AWESOMENESS

SOCIAL IMPACT x WEB STORE x DIGITAL CURRENCY PERSONAL PROJECT

Beat poet, Allen Ginsberg, wrote: "America, when can I go into the supermarket and buy what I need with my good looks?" The Merit Shop is this store - created to provoke discussion about income inequality. It's an e-commerce site where you can "get something awesome by just being awesome." No money required, just your talent. To buy anything from an iPod to a can of beans, you record your talent  (on YouTube, SoundCloud, Instagram, etc.) and send the link as payment. All talents are accepted as exchange for goods.

Project Partners: Daniel Soares, Pedro Sampaio
