Proposed retail price of project
Proposed discount for the Cap3 DAO
Describe the project
Colle is a peer-to-peer marketplace for trading luxury goods backed by NFT. We believe the biggest problem with today's marketplaces in web 3 is the lack of space to build trusting and ongoing relationships.Colle is offering a fully-vetted system with verified and certified consumers in a close (by invite-only) virtual community to (re)sell collectibles with trusted members.
Does the project have any unique characteristics or IP?
The unique characteristics of colle is the exclusivity of the marketplace; having a pool of consumers who share their digital identity with the colle community, makes colle a fully decentralized peer-to-peer platform. Colle is also the first web3 marketplace to verify sellers, buyers, and products digitally.

As an avid collector, he realized that him and his friends, who share the same interests in collecting unique pieces, like to be involved in NFTs/cryptos, mostly focusing on real physical items behind.
