Description:

Bitrewards is a cashback service that gives rewards for purchases in cryptocurrency.

How it works:

Bitrewards aims to connect retailers with customers on a mutually beneficial platform. Retailers get free access to BIT software that shows revenue growth of up to 17%. Shoppers get rewarded for purchasing, inviting friends, liking on Facebook or other activities that facilitate the growth of the community.

The platform features BitRecommendations, an AI data analysis system. It recommends actions and rewards to make the marketing campaign a retailer runs more effective. Merchants just need to send anonymous information about their customers’ behaviour to the system and it will return the best strategy to increase sales.

Innovation:

Innovation score: Medium

Token value:

Retailers reward customers with BIT tokens, customers redeem or hold their token rewards.  Naturally, as the demand for BIT outweighs the supply, it will go up in price. This is when token holders can have a profit out of their investment.

Token value score: Medium

Roadmap:

As of today, the company has a working points based loyalty site giftd.tech, on the basis of which they are launching Bitrewards. Currently they are waiting for the results of the ICO campaign to continue developing Bitrewards. The alpha of AI driven recommendation system is going to be released in November 2018, and is expected to be fully integrated in April 2019.

Roadmap score: Medium

Business model:

BitRewards is based on a business that has been working for five years now,  giftd.tech. Over 500 merchants are using it today, and it shows an average revenue increase of 17%.

The platform will not charge transaction commission until after a year of operation, to maximize the potential for growth. After a year, the commission will be 0.5%, which still attracts users because it’s very low, and brings in revenue because of the volume of transactions made.

Also, the platform may charge extra fees for enhancing merchants’ campaigns by making customary apps or customary blockchain solutions.

The marketing strategy for attracting new merchant includes active interaction with the community of online store owners, partnering up with e-commerce platforms and building relationships with service providers.

Business model score: High

BitRewards enters a highly competitive market, but they have a couple of aces up their sleeve. Investing in them is a bit of gamble, but it might be worth it.
