Decentralized Online Market Prototype.

What is DCart 🛒 ?

DCart is a proof of concept for decentralized market, which removes middlewares, authorities and ofcourse scope of curroption. DCart enables buying and selling of product with bare minimum computations and hence lower gas ⛽. Uses IPFS for storing images.

The Problem 😞

In Web2 based online stores, we have lots of extra charges, plus incentive to buyers and charges for hosting middleware were to be paid by users. Plus, since we are not taking any data, all your purchase history will be yours only. You can always interact with store


Main Page Adding Store
Store Added Store Page
Add Item Form Item Added
Buying from another account Store after transactions

Develop Locally

  • Clone the project locally
git clone
cd final-project-aashutoshrathi
  • Start local development blockchain and copy the mnemonic to be used later
  • Compile contracts and migrate them to the blockchain
npm i
truffle compile
truffle migrate

Setup React

Frontend is React with Web3 with the help of Truffle boxes.

cd client
npm i
npm run start

Run Tests

truffle test
