A crypto-based clothing retailer has offered to help consumers buy vape-related goods and services online, with the goal of increasing its online presence in the UK.
Vape crypto store Vapor Cloud has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, hoping to raise £1m ($1.6m) to expand its online shop and offer more e-commerce options.
The campaign, which launched on Wednesday, says it will use the money to increase its staff and expand its retail footprint in the city.
It hopes to launch vape products in the “near future”, but has not yet set a target date for that.
Vapor Cloud aims to become the UK’s “largest online vape shop”, with “special offers, offers from vape shops, the best e-liquid available”, and “vape essentials” and “great products”.
VaporCloud, which was founded in March 2016, aims to “offer the best online vape store in the world”, according to its Indiegablog profile.
The company said it was “proud to be a part of the new UK vape revolution”, with a focus on vaping, and is a “major supporter of the UK vaping industry”.
“We believe the vaping community in the United Kingdom has been under-served by the industry’s dominance,” the website states.
“The vaping industry is thriving in the City, and we are confident the UK vape community can benefit from Vapor Cloud’s expertise and service.”
Vaporcloud aims to expand to the UK in “mid-2018”, according the Indiegabeek.
Vaping is currently a relatively new phenomenon in the country, and there have been few vape shops to be found in the capital, despite a large number of vape shops already existing in the area.
“We have a vision for Vapor Cloud to become an e-retailer that will expand the reach of the vaping industry in the future,” the company states on its IndieGoGo page.
“As we grow our online store and expand our customer base, we will expand our online presence to meet the needs of the vape community in London.”
A spokesman for VaporCloud did not respond to queries about whether the company plans to increase staff numbers, but said it would expand its UK retail base “in the coming months”.
