Frequently Asked Questions

General questions

WishKnish is a next-generation unifying ledger architecture built for effortless e-commerce, censorship-free communication, and unprecedented simplicity of connecting legacy e-stores, communities, and enterprise systems in a decentralized world.

WishKnish is a platform - therefore, it is what you make of it. However, to help you get started learning about the possibilities, we are launching our first out-of-the-box use case: WishKnish Storefronts, a network of social marketplace communities ("Storefronts") focused around specific projects, products, social causes, political movements, etc., that people care about.

Our goal is to help those communities grow and stay engaged through innovative gamification features, machine-learning-enabled user discovery, and the transparency and resilience of blockchain technology.

WishKnish is and always will be absolutely free to use for regular users. In fact, there are many opportunities to earn some Knish every day. Give it a try!

WishKnish makes money by taking a (very) small commission from transactions that occur within Storefronts, such as purchases and subscriptions. We also make money through sponsored search placements to help Storefronts reach a broader audience, with plans to sell Storefront upgrades and other value-added features in the near future.

Knish ( Knish ) is a special digital token used on WishKnish to reward and incentivize user behavior that is beneficial to both individual Storefronts and to the overall ecosystem in general.

Knish can be earned in several ways:

  1. by earning Achievements (created by Storefront owners to encourage positive behavior from their users)
  2. for performing Daily Missions from your user profile
  3. by participating in Campaigns and helping them reach their goal
  4. by renting advertising space on your Storefront to other Storefront owners
  5. by purchasing Knish from WishKnish or from other users

Knish can be spent in exchange for products and services, distributed to users via your own custom Achievements, or simply gifted.

A Knish is also an Eastern-European pastry filled with potato. It's really quite delightful, but tends to clog up computer networks.

For Creators

Storefronts can be created by any user of WishKnish, and are absolutely free to build.

Once a Storefront is set up, it's up to the owner to fill it with content, products, marketing campaigns, and more. WishKnish makes a wide variety of visual, content, and marketing features available to Storefronts to fit many different needs.

There's no limit to what you can do with your Storefront. And don't let the name fool you - you do not need to necessarily sell something in order to benefit from having one.

Storefronts can be used to sell physical goods (books, arts & crafts, apparel, and more), digital items (eBooks, music, stock photography, documents, videos, and more).

You can also sell subscriptions, which themselves could deliver any of the above on a recurring basis (book boxes, snack boxes, digital music subscriptions, and so on).

You can even sell products and subscriptions from OTHER Storefronts as an affiliate, or bundle multiple products together to re-sell at a discount. The only limit is your imagination.

WishKnish Storefronts presently support payments via major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express) and cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more). You can also set prices in Knish .

There are no upfront fees to sell on WishKnish.

When someone buys from you on WishKnish, we only take a (very) small transaction fee from the money you receive based on the currency used.

Non-profit organizations are exempted from transaction fees entirely, receiving whatever WishKnish receives.
