I’m thinking about launching a Shopify-like business model. Where I use a modified version of a decentralized e-commerce application to deploy customized Dshops to sellers. This e-commerce uses IPFS and Ethereum Blockchain.
My question: do I have any competitive advantage in terms of operation costs against other competitors? since they use traditional servers and I use IPFS.
To deploy this e-commerce, I’m going to need AWS(EC2) to host the container and IPFS server to process off-chain payments & pin files.
AWS charges $30, and Pinata charges $20. How do you find these prices if you compare them to other small-to-medium commerce-providing platforms?
