We believe blockchain is for everyone!

The Rouge Network is a voucher and note protocol

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 vouchers. The growth of digital vouchers with its many formats (discount coupons, event tickets, etc) is phenomenal, and these markets are perfect use cases for the smart contract paradigm on a blockchain.

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

A generic voucher and note protocol

global, trustless, permissionless and decentralized, addressing two major problems

Clearing-House the immense resources challenge of keeping track, using traditional centralized databases, of billions of vouchers, their issuance, their respective users’ ownership, their redemption or the lack thereof.

Fraud non-authenticity, non-uniqueness, double redemption and repudiation are among the biggest problems that plague the issuance of all kind of vouchers.

The Rouge Token (RGE)

A utility token, essential component of the Rouge Network's token economics

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

Using smart-contracts, RGE tokens lock in payouts for vouchers distributors (e.g. coupon ads publishers or tickets resellers).

Finally, it's a price discovery mechanism for the usage of the Rouge Network.
