What is DCL Rialto?

DCL Rialto is a new hub (currently in testing phase) which aims to connect Decentraland related skills, services, investors, developers and entrepreneurs.

In this Decentraland only hub, all deals are currently arranged peer-to-peer via our internal messaging system. Simply list which Decentraland related skills or services you require / offer, then users are able to connect by sending messages and discussing the finer details of any agreements and work together to bring the Metaverse to life.

How does DCL Rialto make money?

It doesn't. Currently all services are free for the community to use responsibly. This may change in the future depending on the level of support we receive from the community we build here.

We would like to further develop DCL Rialto so it can play a vital role in the progression of the Decentraland infrastructure.

  1. Sell
  2. Exchange
  3. Hire Skills
  4. List Your Skills For Hire

How do I create an Ad?

Creating an Ad is quick and easy. Simply click the ‘Submit Ad’ button in the main menu at the top of the website. Next, will need to either create an account or login. You will now be logged into the back end of your account, where you can complete a short listing form.

Remember, the more detail you include, the better chance you have of finding the right people to work with. Pictures also help grab people's attention.

How do I reply to an Ad?

If you wish to start a direct messaging conversation with the user who created an Ad listing, you must first create an account with DCL Rialto. Once you have created your account, navigate to your Ad of choice and you will notice a button for sending messages underneath the user's profile image. You will be able to manage your messages and keep track of the conversation when you are logged into your account.

Until users have the chance to build their profile and feedback on DCL Rialto, please remember to do your due diligence before exchanging any personal details or finances.

How can I get more exposure for my Ad?

Adding advanced listings is currently on our roadmap. For now, all Ads will be posted and listed on a level playing field, ordered by date.

Why can't I see my Ad on the website?

Your Ad may have expired, not adhere to the rules of this website or have been reported by another user and is therefore being reviewed. 

If it doesn't fully comply with the terms of DCL Rialto, or is a suspected scam, it will be removed at the earliest possibility.

Any Ad’s unrelated to Decentraland will be removed, and your account may be suspended without warning at the discretion of DCL Rialto.

Where can I find Ads I have marked as favorites?

Occasionally you may find an Ad you want to follow. You can mark an Ad as a favorite by clicking the heart icon. Your list of favorite Ads will then be found in your user dashboard when logged in.

How can I report an Ad or user?

If you feel that an Ad is breaking some rules or trying to scam, you can report it directly from the Ad page by clicking on the Report button and writing a detailed reason. The Ad will remain active until it has been checked by an administrator.

Do you screen users for legitimacy?

Whilst anyone can create a free account and post an Ad, we have introduced 2 ways to help quality check users for safety and trustworthiness.

1.User Rating System

2.Verified User Profiles

You can find more information about how this works further down in this FAQ section.

You should only use these as a basic guideline. A good tip is to look at which users have left a review. Any user with a good feedback from the official DCL Rialto admin account is generally known to be a reputable member of the Decentraland community in Discord. 

Take the time to research the person you are in contact with to see if the information they are sharing with you checks out. 

However, ultimately all responsibility lies with the user to not fall for scams. DCL Rialto will NOT reimburse any monies lost due to disputes or scams etc. Please use your common sense and report any suspicious Ads or users.

How does the user rating system work?

The user rating system works by way of a star rating system, with 5 stars being the highest award. There are two types of reviews – buyer and seller.

Once you have registered with DCL Rialto, you will be able to contact other users who have placed an Ad. Once you receive a reply, both users will be able to review one another based on your experience, with your overall rating being publically visible.

Once a review is left it cannot be changed, but there will be the opportunity to leave a response for reviews should you wish. We highly recommend waiting until any agreed deal is complete before leaving a rating.

How does the verified user system work?

A verified user profile on DCL Rialto displays a special ‘verified’ profile image which you can easily see displayed on any user profile and Ad listing. Verified users will usually fall into one of the following 2 categories:

1.Official Decentraland team members

2.District Leaders

If you are unsure about the legitimacy of any user or suspect the account and/or profile image to be fake, you should first check the user reviews. ALL verified users will have at least 1 x 5 star feedback from the official DCL Rialto admin account. Any account without this feedback should be considered suspicious and reported immediately.

When will my listing expire?

In order to build the number of active Ads, during the testing period all Ads will automatically expire and be removed from the platform after 60 days.

If your Ad becomes irrelevant before the 60 days period has finished, we kindly ask users to delete the Ad manually.

You may be contacted from time to time by an admin to ensure your Ad is still relevant. Failure to reply may result in your Ad being removed.

Do I need to own LAND in Decentraland?

No. Anybody who wishes to do business in Decentraland, and have skills which are compatible with the project, can freely use DCL Rialto.

Can I make a listing for other projects which are not related to Decentraland?

No. Only Ads which offer value to Decentraland (or Decentraland related projects) are welcome to post on DCLRialto.com. Any Ad deemed to fall outside these guidelines will be removed without notice.

How much does it cost?

DCL Rialto is a community project therefore it is currently FREE for all valid Ads.

How should I pay for skills and services I require?

We recommend using an Escrow service for making payments between 2 parties.

For now, no payments are currently processed through DCL Rialto, so both parties should figure out the best way to arrange any terms or agreed payments.

DCL Rialto takes no part in the exchange of any funds and will therefore not be held accountable for any losses or disputes between members of this website. We only facilitate connecting people at this time. If you are unsure, please DO NOT use this website. 

What is the currency used on DCL Rialto? and how much is it worth?

Currently, all Ad listings on this website are priced in Decentralands MANA token.

You will find a live currency convertor in the sidebar on the Browse All Ads page (click here). This gives an instant live valuation of MANA token, converting it into most fiat currencies including $ USD, £ GBP, Euro, as well as some cryptocurrencies.

How many Ads can I post at one time?

Each user is permitted to have upto a maximum of 5 Ads live at any one time.

This may be increased after the current testing phase.

Can I sell Decentraland LAND on DCL Rialto?

DCL Rialto has a clear focus on content building and connections. Due to the fact that LAND flipping creates very little value in terms of content, and the highly liquid nature of LAND, LAND sellers are politely asked to use other websites to list their LAND for sale or lease.

Whilst this may change in the future, DCL Rialto reserves the right to remove any LAND for Sale listings.

We do, however, plan to open categories for LAND which has already valuable content built on it, and LAND Rentals, in the not so distant future.

Is DCL Rialto part of the official Decentraland project?

No. DCL Rialto runs 100% independently and is in no way affiliated with the official Decentraland project.
