Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) ARknet launches MainSt.Shopping for Small Businesses to Rapidly Build Free Geo-Located Augmented Reality Storefronts

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) ARknet launches MainSt.Shopping for Small Businesses to Rapidly Build Free Geo-Located Augmented Reality Storefronts

ORO VALLEY, Ariz., July 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM), the creators of ARknet, today announced the launch of MainSt.Shopping inside the ARknet mobile platform. MainSt provides shoppers and small businesses the power and utility of augmented reality combined with the accuracy of true local search using GEO location. Additionally, it provides store owners new to eCommerce, easy controls for store pickup, local delivery, and shipping.

TAUTACHROME (PRNewsFoto/Tauatachrome, Inc.)

ARknet conducted an invitation-only pilot program for small retail businesses with no setup fees, no monthly fees, typical credit card processing fees and a 2% platform fee, which amounts to lower fees than large platforms like Amazon. The average MainSt store with initial products, photos, and pricing took less than an hour to set up. 

One of our pilot program vendors, Yin Yang Music, was mandated to be closed during the recent economic shutdown. The store’s owner, John Donavan, is a long-time musician who said, “MainSt shopping opened up a new way to sell when we were forced to close our doors. There are not a lot of other options. Other larger online platforms charge such high fees that I can’t afford to sell through them.”

David LaMountain, Tautachrome’s COO brings over twenty years of public company investment and small business experience to the MainSt.Shopping launch. He said, “We are tremendously encouraged by the initial response and feedback from our MainSt pilot program participants. With the success of the pilot behind us, we are now focused on increasing the number of small businesses that sign up and start actively selling. We have taken special care to add key ingredients for small business owners such as in-app private text and video chat, easy to use local delivery features, and store pickup features. These tools help small businesses keep retail sales local, leveling the playing field against larger national retail chains.”

In the coming months, additional features like 3D augmented reality product listings are expected to further drive the adoption rate. We have set an ambitious goal of 5,000 small retail businesses to be actively selling and transacting $2,500,000 in sales by the end of 2020. Concurrent with these objectives Tautachrome expects to launch MainSt.Services for service companies and MainSt.Menu for restaurants and eateries.

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) ARknet Launches TravelPin Enabling Users to Explore, Create, & Share Geo-Located Augmented Reality Pins of Travel Experiences

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) ARknet Launches TravelPin Enabling Users to Explore, Create, & Share Geo-Located Augmented Reality Pins of Travel Experiences

ORO VALLEY, Ariz., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM), the creators of ARknet, today announced the launch of TravelPin inside the ARknet mobile platform. TravelPin allows travelers and vacationers the ability to create, share, and explore geo-located augmented reality TravelPins all around the world that are filled with photos, memories, travel experiences, and more. Users can create TravelPins and display years or even decades of travel experiences or browse others and add those places to your bucket list.

TravelPins are a worldwide mapped community of geo-located 3D augmented objects which live inside of the larger ARknet social platform. Users can interact with these TravelPins and other 3D objects in augmented reality by using ARknet’s “Summon” and “Teleport” features. Summoning allows for a user to select a TravelPin from anywhere in the world and manifest it in augmented reality at their current location for interaction. Teleporting temporarily positions a user’s geo-location anywhere in the world allowing for exploration and creating as if they were actually there. Visit or create travel pins in the United States, Spain, Antarctica, or anywhere in the world where you have traveled.

At the core of ARknet’s mission is content and data privacy. When a user creates their TravelPins, it is at their discretion whether their content is private for only them to see, has restricted access only viewable by friends, or public for all to experience and interact with.

David LaMountain, Tautachrome’s COO said, “We are excited to officially launch ARknet’s TravelPin brand as people love to explore, create, and share with others. Even though 2020 thus far has seen a halt to the majority of the world’s travel plans, TravelPin still allows for users to not only share a lifetime of past experiences but also explore others’ and decide where they are headed next.”

In the coming months, we will be launching other new and exciting brands inside the ARknet platform. Stay tuned as we bring even more fun and utility for communities all over the world.

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) Gains Additional Patent Protections for its ARknet Platform with a New Augmented Reality Communities Patent Filing

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) Gains Additional Patent Protections for its ARknet Platform with a New Augmented Reality Communities Patent Filing

ORO VALLEY, Ariz., Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM), the developer of the ARknet platform, today announced the strengthening of the licensing agreement for the platform with the addition of a new provisional patent, “System and Method for Creating Geo-Located Augmented Reality Communities.” This provisional patent was officially filed with the US Patent Office on Friday, July 31st, 2020. This filing allows for additional claims to be added to the patent application over the next 12 months, as new technology is developed and rolled out.

The ARknet social platform uses a multitude of geo-located 3D augmented reality objects across a single navigable network. The user-created 3D objects are anchored in the physical world around the user and are accessible and interactable using ARknet’s Summon and Teleport features. While the patent application claims cannot currently be discussed in detail, Tautachrome has said the expanded visual experience and related interaction with 3D objects taught in this new patent application will first appear and be available in the MainSt.Shopping branded business center inside the ARknet platform.

Jordan Gray, ARknet’s platform architect with over 20 years of experience in digital ecosystems development, said today, “The digital communities created in the early years of social media that still persist today are largely unchanged. We are reimagining a more intelligent, private, and useful all-in-one user-centric mobile and wearable assistive technology to help people and teams of people as they go about their daily activities.”

Dr. Jon N. Leonard, Tautachrome’s CEO and a holder of numerous patents, said today, “I’m a great believer in the value afforded by strong patent protection, and I’m convinced that the patent claims we are laying down here in this provisional patent will set the course for how communities will better be able to organize, collaborate, and facilitate easier transactions in commerce using augmented reality in the future.”

Tautachrome currently owns five granted US Patents for its KlickZie imagery technology and will continue to pursue internal IP development. Tautachrome will also continue to strengthen its core technology position, license agreements, development partnerships, and strategic intellectual property acquisitions as such actions will further protect its patent and IP portfolio.

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) Launches Main Street vs. Wall Street Campaign for Small Business Owners this Labor Day Weekend

Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM) Launches Main Street vs. Wall Street Campaign for Small Business Owners this Labor Day Weekend

ORO VALLEY, Ariz., Sept. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Tautachrome (OTC: TTCM), the developer of the ARknet platform and its MainSt.Shopping mobile marketplace, announces the launch of the Main Street vs. Wall Street campaign for small business owners this Labor Day weekend.

The largest retailers in the world—with their extensive digital marketplaces—are realizing record profits, while small businesses on “Main Street USA” are experiencing record losses and business closures. One small business alone cannot compete with corporate e-commerce giants, but millions banding together can.

Jordan Gray, ARknet’s platform architect, with over 20 years of experience in digital ecosystems development, said today, “Customers don’t want to deal with a multitude of websites just to support their local businesses when ordering online, and the typical small business online shopping experience is currently disjointed and confusing. This is why big retail e-commerce is booming, but that’s not so for small businesses. However, by bringing to small businesses a low-fee, unified marketplace with fast geo-localized mobile search, MainSt.Shopping can bring to small businesses the digital tools larger retailer have.”

Inside the ARknet Platform there are already 2.9 million retail business listings loaded in, ready to be claimed. For these 2.9 million businesses, once claimed, setting up the business is automatic. If a business is not already listed, it can add itself very quickly.

Ohio MainSt.Shopping vendor Ella Bella Homemade was able to quickly add its store and products and go “live” within one hour. Mandy Groszko, owner of Ella Bella Homemade said, “It was a no-brainer to add this new sales channel, since there are no cost or fees until there is a sale.”

She added, “And even then, the platform fee is fractional compared to what I am normally paying out to other marketplaces—more of the profit in my pocket lets me keep prices very competitive.”

Mandy continued, “Once I receive a notification, I can accept or reject the order, process a refund or send a note to the customer directly — it’s all very self-contained on my phone.”

MainSt.Shopping promises no monthly fees, no signup fees, and unlimited product listings. And businesses never pay unless there is a sale. The ARknet platform fee of 4.9% and $.30 per transaction includes the credit card processing (Stripe receives 2.9% plus $.30 per transaction) with the remaining smaller percentage supporting the ARknet platform. In addition, communities that organize and sign up 10 or more transacting businesses can designate (by way of a vote each year) an organization (such as a chamber of commerce or other civic organization) that will receive a quarter of a percent (.25%) of the platform fees collected.

David LaMountain, Tautachrome COO, said today, “Small businesses were scrambling the first few months of Covid, just trying to process and handle their operational challenges while, for safety reasons, they were often understaffed. Since March, the ARknet MainSt.Shopping platform has been expertly engineered, and we believe small businesses are ready to engage in full-speed digital commerce. ARknet is on a mission to make that easy, even for new businesses. The big-box retailers have all the tools in their hands, and we are determined to provide powerful digital e-commerce tools to everyday Main Street businesses, to give them an edge. By unifying small businesses and communities into ARknet’s MainSt.Shopping, we can level the playing field in competition for local dollars.”

Dr. Jon N. Leonard, Tautachrome’s CEO and an author of many of the company’s patents, said today, “Global commerce is poised to experience an enormous democratization of the exchange of goods and services. I believe this democratization will sweep through the world, and I expect ARknet to be a key driver in the process.”

The Main Street vs. Wall Street campaign marketing efforts will be substantial, including a dynamic sales team, social promotion, digital advertising, call center staff, app store promotion, physical ads, and a targeted direct mail campaign for ready-to-claim business listings.
