Three Protocol

Three Protocol is a foundational ecosystem dedicated to decentralizing marketplaces to foster inclusivity in eCommerce and transactions, Built and incubated by Tectum . It leverages advanced technologies, including Neural Network AI, pseudonymization, and Tri-Signature , creating a secure and inclusive ecosystem.[1][2]

The vision of Three Protocols is to foster inclusivity and privacy in digital commerce. It aims to help users worldwide overcome traditional barriers and decentralize oversight, addressing the limitations of . The protocol is designed for unbanked, privacy-conscious individuals, and blockchain enthusiasts, striving to make decentralized commerce accessible to everyone. One of Three Protocol’s future goals is to launch a mobile app where it will have all the marketplaces in one place.[3][8]

On June 13, 2024, Three Protocol unveiled the beta phase of Jobs3, marking the debut of its first decentralized marketplace.[4]


Launched in May 2024, Three Protocol represents an innovative ecosystem building a series of decentralized marketplaces. These marketplaces will offer users access to e-commerce and facilitate real-world asset transactions in unprecedented ways, all achieved through a series of cutting-edge technologies. As the flagship project incubated by Tectum, it operates on the $TET Tectum , a distinguished blockchain accelerator and valued partner of the UNCX Network.[1]

In a nutshell, Three Protocol is a project that decentralizes marketplaces to enable inclusivity in online commerce and RWA for the unbanked, debanked, crypto spenders, and those concerned about privacy and want to avoid and legislation that infringes on human rights. It offers unprecedented accessibility and privacy through state-of-the-art technologies such as pseudonymity and advanced Neural Network AI within a tri-sig framework. [2]

Utilizing state-of-the-art Neural Network AI models, Three Protocol matches users to products, services, and with unmatched speed and precision compared to traditional web2 marketplaces. By incorporating on-chain digital IDs and ZKP pseudonymization, Three Protocol ensures secure participation in digital economies without risking personal information. The platform also guarantees fair and efficient dispute resolution through the use of TriSig DAO on its decentralized marketplaces.

The Three Protocol ecosystem consists of a variety of decentralized marketplaces designed to meet diverse economic needs. Platforms like Jobs3 facilitate freelance employment opportunities, while 3Bay supports secure transactions for buying and selling goods, offering transparent alternatives to centralized equivalents such as Fiverr, Upwork, eBay, Amazon, Autotrader, and Just Eat. All of this is done within a secure, decentralized environment.

This initiative aims to break down barriers imposed by centralized control, ensuring universal access, user autonomy, and robust privacy safeguards. By promoting financial inclusivity and adoption, Three Protocol seeks to empower individuals worldwide, regardless of their financial or geographic status, thereby fostering a more equitable global economy.[5]

Three Pillar Technologies

These are the three foundational technologies that will underpin all Three Protocol Marketplaces:

1. Neural Network AI

Three Protocol leverages advanced Neural Network AI technology to revolutionize eCommerce and online marketplaces. This state-of-the-art system enhances the product and service matching process, ensuring users are connected with precisely what they need, thereby optimizing marketplace efficiency and user experience.

Additionally, the AI assists freelancers who excel in their fields but struggle to market themselves. By extracting and analyzing information from their CVs, the AI effectively promotes their skills to potential clients, helping them stand out to prospective employers. Three Protocol also utilizes AI to enhance product search functionality. This AI learns from users' past searches and applies specific criteria to predict and match subsequent queries more accurately. For instance, when searching for niche product qualities on platforms like Amazon, users often encounter broad search results. Three Protocol's AI refines these searches, providing more precise and relevant results.[6]

Web2 marketplaces like Fiverr and eBay rely on category-based systems, resulting in a lack of personalized results and wasted time. In contrast, all of Three Protocol’s marketplaces will utilize Neural Network AI technology to enhance searches through prompt-based technology. This AI-driven approach reduces the time users spend on the platform, making the user experience simpler and more efficient. The advanced AI model not only saves time but also personalizes the entire process, delivering the highest quality results. By improving UX, saving time, and reducing costs, Three Protocol’s marketplaces provide a more user-friendly and efficient experience.

The development of Three Protocol's AI model is focused on not just decentralizing marketplaces but also significantly enhancing their efficiency. The aim is to move away from the generalized search methods typical of platforms like Amazon to more intuitive, prompt-based searches. This advancement is designed to make marketplaces more effective and user-friendly, providing a better overall experience.[7]

Three Protocol's Procurement Matching Neural Network AI (PMNN AI)

Three Protocol's Procurement Matching Neural Network AI simplifies the hiring process for employers. They input the position they're hiring for, and with a click, the PMNN uses advanced technology to analyze the talent pool. It then recommends top talent based on the employer's needs, ensuring compatibility and efficiency with minimal effort.

Additionally, Three Protocols Escrow provides a secure way for employers to pay for services. Employers pay a service fee, which is stored securely in an escrow. The funds are only released when the job is completed to satisfaction, providing reassurance to both parties.
The PMNN AI uses a sophisticated hybrid structure of neural networks to enhance eCommerce searches. It incorporates various types of neural networks for different tasks, such as interpreting user queries, processing images and reviews, aligning search specifics with descriptions, matching queries to product features, and analyzing relationships between products. This approach ensures that users receive the most relevant and precise search results.

Furthermore, Three Protocol offers their PMNN AI structure on a permissionless 'pay-to-train' basis. This allows eCommerce and marketplace platforms to train their hybrid neural network models, democratizing access to advanced AI technology. Training fees are processed using $THREE, the platform's native token, with a portion of these fees returned to stakeholders. This model incentivizes community participation and support.[2]

2. ZKP Digital ID

pseudo-anonymization is a way to keep users' data private while still being able to use decentralized platforms. It involves creating a hash of a hash of their private key, which sets up a blockchain profile linked to their private key without revealing their personal information. This profile can gather public data like reviews that they choose to share, maintaining anonymity in transactions.[1]

With this method, users can maintain a unique profile on decentralized platforms while keeping their wallet activities private. Unlike traditional transactions, where wallet activities can be traced, ZKP anonymization secures privacy and allows users to control the information they wish to disclose, balancing transparency with anonymity.

In decentralized marketplaces, preserving anonymity is crucial. ZKP allows users to prove the existence of personal data, such as a passport, through a hash, without revealing specific details. This method confirms the authenticity of personal data while maintaining user privacy.

Concerns about public transaction histories are addressed through ZKP. By associating a ZKP with the user’s wallet, a new profile is created that captures essential platform activities without exposing the wallet's detailed transactional history. This allows for activity verification without compromising privacy. Users can create a platform-specific profile that reveals only selected information, ensuring financial activities remain private.

and on-chain digital identities enable individuals to interact within the Three Protocol ecosystem securely and privately, without the need for traditional KYC processes that require revealing personal information. This is particularly empowering for the unbanked, providing them with financial independence and access to economic activities traditionally hindered by centralized systems. Users benefit from instant transactions, minimal fees, and identity verification without divulging sensitive details.[1]

3. Tri-Signature DAO

Three Protocol’s Tri-Signature DAO serves as an impartial intermediary to facilitate secure and fair transactions between buyers and sellers. Its functions include Transaction Approval, Dispute Resolution, and Escrow Management.[9]

The Three Protocol’s Tri-Proof smart contract is the ultimate solution for non-custodial, efficient eCommerce. This system involves three provers: the Buyer, the Seller, and the DAO (Decentralized Autonomous Organization). This tri-party structure ensures that all potential situations in an online transaction between two parties are adequately covered. The process requires only two Zero-Knowledge STARK (ZKStark) on-chain proofs to execute a transaction, enhancing efficiency and security.[2]
wikiThe DAO includes a voting mechanism where team members and token holders with at least 0.2% of the supply can review and vote on disputes. Once resolved, the party deemed wrong pays a fee, which is distributed to DAO members.

When two parties agree to a service on the marketplace, each becomes one of the three signatures. If the agreement goes smoothly, they sign a form, and funds are released from the escrow smart contract. However, if a dispute arises—such as one party claiming the other isn't following the terms, asking for more work, or disputing the service quality—they must raise the issue. The third signature, the DAO itself, then gets involved.

If the buyer is unhappy, the assesses the situation and decides whether to support the buyer or seller by providing the necessary proof. Similarly, if the seller is dissatisfied, the DAO evaluates and provides the required proof. This system democratizes dispute resolution, ensuring fairness and efficiency.[10]



Jobs3 is the pioneering marketplace built on Three Protocol. It revolutionizes the employment landscape by breaking down geographical and economic barriers, and connecting a global workforce with diverse opportunities through a decentralized platform. Leveraging advanced Neural Network AI, Jobs3 facilitates job matching and transactions, ensuring user guidance, while its No-KYC ZKP Pseudo Anonymity feature guarantees privacy and security.[11]

With its Tri-Signature DAO governance and cryptocurrency transactions, Jobs3 creates an inclusive, merit-based ecosystem that empowers freelancers, employees, and employers in the digital economy.

It is the first marketplace on Three Protocol and provides a decentralized alternative to platforms like Fiverr and Upwork. Users can transact in $THREE (and other cryptocurrencies) using the no- on-chain Decentralised Digital ID’s. As the inaugural platform, Jobs3 aims to be a decentralized alternative to existing employment platforms, offering secure escrow services, efficient procurement, and seamless cryptocurrency transactions.[12]

Jobs3 imposes a 10% service fee on sellers and a 5% fee on buyers. This is much lower than the 20-40% fees found on Upwork and Fiverr. This model aims to balance revenue generation with competitive pricing, reducing the fees for sellers to 10% to increase market attractiveness.[2]


wikiWallet3 is Three Protocol's first-ever no-KYC digital ID-based ZKP crypto wallet. This innovative wallet allows users to sign multiple transactions across various wallets using a single digital identity, providing users with unparalleled privacy and digital autonomy.


3Bay is a platform tailored for auctions and sales, with a focus on swift and impartial reviews. The anticipated launch is scheduled for August 2024. It is transforming the online auction and sales landscape by introducing a decentralized platform that eliminates traditional financial and privacy constraints. Through the use of No-KYC ZKP Pseudo Anonymity, 3Bay ensures secure and efficient transactions while protecting user identities and maintaining transactional anonymity.

The platform leverages Neural Network AI to streamline the auction process, providing users with a user-friendly experience. Governance on 3Bay is structured around a Tri-Signature DAO, promoting transparency, inclusivity, and democracy through cryptocurrency-based transactions.

Traditional online marketplaces often impose listing fees and a percentage of the final sale price as charges. For instance, eBay charges a 75-cent listing fee along with a 13% final value fee. In contrast, 3Bay aims to offer a competitive edge by proposing a reduced final sale fee of 7.5%, which is capped.[2]


A decentralized alternative to services like Uber, featuring an upfront payment model for initial reviews. Scheduled for launch in December 2024.

In comparison to the industry standard of a 26% fee charged by traditional services like Uber, 3Taxi reduces its fee to 10%. This strategic pricing is intended to disrupt the market by offering a more economical alternative for service providers.[6]


A decentralized marketplace specializing in automotive transactions. Expected to debut in October 2024. Platforms like Autotrader typically charge around $100 per listing. In contrast, Auto3 intends to halve this cost, setting the fee at approximately $50. This approach is designed to attract sellers through lower costs.


A decentralized food delivery service positioned to compete with platforms like Grab, Doordash, and Deliveroo. The planned launch date is February 2025. Compared to food delivery services like Deliveroo, which typically charge restaurants around 30%, 3Eats plans to significantly undercut this by setting its fee at 10%. This strategy aims to attract more dining establishments to its platform.[13]
