Co-founder of LOBSTR, Gleb Pitsevich, said “We are very excited to join the DigitalBits ecosystem and work with the people behind the project. We believe that applying blockchain technology to customer loyalty programs has great potential and can disrupt the legacy loyalty industry. The underlying technology of the DigitalBits blockchain network is similar to what is used in Stellar and we will apply all the experience and knowledge we received from LOBSTR to help build a great platform for managing XDB and other digital assets issued on DigitalBits network.”
The DigitalBits blockchain, a protocol focused on becoming the transaction and trading layer of certain digital assets, including the points economy, is seeking to create a marketplace where consumers can trade and store digital assets such as loyalty points. With a third of all loyalty points going unredeemed each year, at a value totalling approximately $16 billion in the US alone, this is an industry with the potential to be radically advanced through the advantages blockchain technology can provide such as portability and near-instant transactions.
The DigitalBits Foundation supports the DigitalBits™ open-source project by providing development resources, infrastructure, events and education. DigitalBits is focused on closing the gap between Blockchain innovation and driving mass adoption. The DigitalBits blockchain is a transaction and trading layer for digital assets, including the points economy. It is designed to enable mass market liquidity of fragmented digital assets.It’s native digital asset (“digitalbits” or “XDB”) secures the blockchain network, enables functional use of wallets, and is required to cover nominal transaction fees on the network. DigitalBits is targeting the multi-billion dollar loyalty and rewards market as a first use-case to tokenize legacy points already in the pockets of a large portion of society. The DigitalBits blockchain will achieve this by enabling large scale companies to integrate their loyalty and rewards programs and in turn migrate millions of active wallets onto the DigitalBits blockchain.
