Rouge: the next generation coupon platform

The Rouge Network is a protocol and a platform

as a suite of smart contracts using a specific token — the Rouge token — on the Ethereum blockchain.

The Rouge Project is building an open-source platform to reduce costs, friction and the need for trusted middlemen to produce non-falsifiable, non-repudiable and unique usage coupons. The growth of the digital coupon market is phenomenal, and this market is a perfect use case for the smart contract paradigm.

Rouge coupons are the future of digital marketing: trackable, verifiable, monitizeable by customers or publishers, secure and frictionless. The Rouge platform will foster an ecosystem of decentralized applications (ÐApps) opening new possibilities for coupons.

A new kind of marketing coupon

on a global, trustless, permissionless and decentralized platform with three types of actors

Brands issue less expensive, easily-trackable and fraud-resistant coupons (no double redemption).

Users acquire verifiable coupons with certified terms (no repudiation); plus they are able to transfer or resell them on secondary markets.

Publishers monetize campaigns and coupon advertisements with no middlemen, receiving higher ad revenue from coupon ads and drives.

The Rouge Token (RGE)

An open-source ERC20 compliant token with a fixed supply

A price discovery mechanism for the usage of the Rouge Network.

Using smart-contracts, RGE tokens lock in publishers' potential advertisement payouts.

Tokens may be burned as a negative incentive against spam and to deter malevolent use of the network.
