dreamstore.meis an online store where you can buy the world you truly want to live in, with absolutely no risk at all. To do this, you just order a DreamFuture, an innovation designed to drive positive social change. If you don’t get what you ordered, you pay nothing at all.
A DreamFuture is an ambitious vision for a high-impact social goal – imagine eliminating chronic homelessness or increasing the perception of kindness in the USA exponentially. The goal is carefully designed and clearly articulated in a specific and measurable way through a publicly available index.
When you order a DreamFuture, you agree to pay a certain amount of money in the future if the goal of your choice has been achieved within a predetermined time frame. You decide how much you want to pay if and when the goal is achieved – but the amount paid upfront is always $0. If the goal is not achieved, you pay nothing at all.
Ordering a DreamFuture means signing a DreamFuture Commitment Agreement. Through this commitment, you promise to pay an amount in the future if the high-impact social goal you chose is achieved within the predetermined time frame. You choose what that amount is when you order your DreamFuture. DreamFuture Commitment Agreements are signed online through DocuSign, the worldwide leader in electronic signature technology and digital transaction management services.
By ordering a DreamFuture you declare that you truly want to see the high-impact social goal of your choice become a reality. You assign a monetary value to that goal and commit to pay only if the goal is met. Your order, along with orders placed by many others, inspires even more people to order that DreamFuture and helps to untap massive resources exclusively dedicated to reaching the goal.
dreamstore.me identifies investors willing to commit money today to work toward achieving the goal. Upon successful completion of the project, the proceeds of your DreamFuture contract and those of many others are collected by the investors as their return for accepting the risks associated with investing in the project. If the goal is not achieved, the investors do not receive any payment from you or anyone else who ordered that DreamFuture.
When you place an order to buy any product, hundreds of people work behind the scenes to design it, build it and distribute it. When you order a DreamFuture, you set in motion a whole economy specifically dedicated to creating a better world: Investors, scientists, lawyers, marketing and advertising professionals, sociologists, educators, designers, engineers and all sorts of innovators, leaders and pioneers start working together, for you, to achieve the goal and make the world a better place.
Each DreamFuture has a maturity date – the deadline for the goal to be achieved – and a due date – the date by which you have to pay if the goal has been effectively achieved. These dates are typically set 10 years in the future. Please refer to the DreamFuture of your choice for the specific maturity date and due date.
Every DreamFuture has a “referee” which we call an Independent Calculation Agent or ICA. When a DreamFuture becomes available for sale, the ICA defines the goal very clearly and measures the status of the goal at that time. While a whole team of experts works to make the DreamFuture goal become a reality, the ICA will issue periodic progress reports to keep you informed. And at the maturity date, the ICA measures the status of the goal and issues a final report verifying whether the goal has been achieved. All of these reports will be readily available to you.
If the goal is not achieved, your DreamFuture Commitment Agreement (i.e., your contract) expires and you pay nothing at all. However, you and our entire society get to enjoy the benefits of partial achievement of the goalfor free - the years of work and millions of dollars that investors committed upfront to achieve the goal will most likely have made a big difference in our quality of life.
