Caddle Leverages Decentralized Blockchain to Power its Next-Generation Rewards Program

St. Catharines, Ontario – May 30, 2018 –  Caddle®, a customer engagement platform that offers consumers cash-back rebates, today announced it has joined the DigitalBits Partner Ecosystem and will integrate the DigitalBits blockchain with its rewards platform to offer greater value for consumers.

According to research from Caddle, Canadian consumers are increasingly interested in the cryptocurrency space. Two-thirds of the respondents would like to see brands expand their loyalty programs by adding cryptocurrencies as a reward for purchases. By utilizing the DigitalBits blockchain, in addition to earning cash rewards on the Caddle platform, their users will soon be able to earn digitalbits (also known as XDB), the native digital asset of this blockchain network.

The DigitalBits blockchain enables a secure, decentralized approach to delivering digital assets such as points and rewards directly to consumers. This removes the centralized systems which often holds points and rewards in silos that are more vulnerable to attacks.

“We’re excited to leverage the DigitalBits blockchain and provide our customers with a next-generation rewards platform,” said Ransom Hawley, CEO of Caddle. “Adding cryptocurrency as a reward for Caddle users was an easy decision for us, following the results of our recent consumer survey. We are looking forward to making a contribution to the DigitalBits community and supporting the growth of this blockchain ecosystem.”

“We’re delighted to have Caddle join the DigitalBits Partner Ecosystem and harness the power of blockchain technology,” said Al Burgio, Founder & CEO, The DigitalBits Foundation. “By Caddle integrating its platform with the DigitalBits blockchain, we will be sure to see exponential growth of the number of user accounts on this decentralized network.”
