Allys Ton Believes In Reimagining & Integrating Blockchain Technology
This company’s creative use of blockchain technology will change luxury goods ownership.
Allys Ton, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer of Appreciate, believes that by reimagining and integrating blockchain technology into the company’s concept, they will change the narrative surrounding luxury goods to one that emphasizes more thoughtful ownership and eliminates waste by encouraging usage. This transformation will occur due to the company’s efforts.
Allys discusses in an exclusive interview how her firm hopes to enhance the luxury ownership experience while addressing the issue of mindless consumerism. Allys describes the history of the Appreciate idea, the “verifiable credentials” of the Appreciate platform, which are centred on blockchain web3, and how to Appreciate onboard people into web3, among other topics.

Allys’s intense love and respect for her luxury handbags, which she views as symbols of much more than just accessories, inspired her to create the brand Appreciate. Allys likes to make long-term investments in pieces of art that speak to crucial stages of her life and that she is convinced she will continue to appreciate throughout her lifetime, rather than continuously hunting for her next major purchase. Because they refer to crucial eras in her life, these art pieces speak to those periods. This attitude was the impetus for the development of appreciation.
The company’s chief executive officer emphasized that “when we appreciate our goods, ownership may feel the same as purchasing.”
Allys believes that the most effective strategy to minimize the number of products discarded globally and encourage people to buy fewer stuff is to continuously combat customers’ desire to purchase new luxury items. Allys and her co-founder partner Justin Connor performed research that led to the establishment of this concept. They discovered that if we build an emotional attachment to the things we own, serotonin, a more stable neurotransmitter, may replace the dopamine response in the brain. This revelation was the outcome of their investigation.
In preparation for the eventual adoption of web3 technology, Appreciate is already attempting to educate its clients on the concept that may enhance real-world physical objects with digital properties. Due to its focus on fashion and user-friendly navigation, web3 is an appropriate entry point for newbies to the platform. Allys thinks that “the familiar and accessible web2 UI is what would attract consumers to our application,” even though the program was built using the web3-based infrastructure.
Traditional paper or electronic receipts are used to establish evidence of purchase. Traditional paper or digital receipts are used to provide evidence of purchase. May use either a form or an electronic receipt to prove the existence of an investment. As a consumer, I am informed about the individuals who have handled this item and the corresponding paper trail. On the other side, this information is precious for businesses since it allows [them] to identify the consumers with the highest brand loyalty. Still, they Appreciate’s ‘Verifiable Credentials’ are dynamic and can record what transpires beyond the point of sale, which Allys describes as “very intriguing for everyone in the ecosystem.”
Through the “explore” portion of the website, Appreciate enables users to get a thorough grasp of the history and function of several items. This paves the path for subsequent transactions to be done openly and honestly. For example, if a user discovered that their pre-existing object had a private function or story (such as a famous owner), this feature would add additional value to the luxury products displayed on the website. According to Allys, installing a part in the not-too-distant future that would inform consumers about environmentally friendly firms is planned so that Admire can maintain its commitment to its sustainability objective.
