Prototype

Detailed description

Pointium is a blockchain-based point management platform addressing these problems. The users of Pointium can easily integrate and manage Pointium tokens and their points for each company around the world in the Pointium Wallet. The users can also easily exchange their points for Pointium tokens, or Pointium tokens for the partnership’s points. In addition, the Pointium Wallet includes the Promotion Feed, which provides the users with the promotion or coupon of the partnerships in real time. 

This enables Pointium's partnerships to reach more customers and to promote more loyalty programs. Moreover, in Pointium Shop, the users can purchase the products or services of the partnerships.

To provide the users of Pointium with the reasonable exchange rate, Pointium operates two economic models. The first one is the Pointium Exchange Model. According to the model, the partnerships of Pointium can determine their own exchange rates for buy/sell and can also set the minimum points for exchange. This model lets the market decide the exchange rate, and gives the partnerships the full control to reduce their point debts. However, this model alone has a limitation: this can enable the Pointium users to experience the exchange loss. Therefore, the Pointium secondly aims to provide a more reasonable exchange rate for the users by operating the Promotion Incentive Model. 

Basically, it is the way to provide the users with more promotions of the partnerships who actively participate in the exchange. In this way, the partnerships try to establish the more reasonable exchange rate to promote more loyalty programs. Also, the model makes Pointium partnerships and users more actively participate in the Pointium. 

Problem

Difficulty of Point Management
On average, we are registered to the 29 different point programs. This makes point management extremely difficult and causes the points to expire.

Poor Performance of Loyalty Programs
Due to low utilization of points, companies cannot achieve the loyalty program's performance as intended. Such poor performance puts social costs on both customers and businesses.

Increased Liabilities of the Businesses
To the businesses, unused points are listed as liabilities. As customers' points become less utilized, the businesses’ liabilities become larger and negatively affect their financial assessments.

Solution

Pointium solves these problems by integrating the current point system. Pointium users can manage all their points at once, and exchange unused points for Pointium tokens, and exchange their Pointium tokens for the points of other partnerships. Also, Pointium can automatically convert the to-be-expired points into Pointium tokens and prevent the points from being disappeared. Pointium provides the partnerships with the right to determine the exchange rate so that they can effectively eliminate their debt and utilize the Pointium’s Promotion Feed to reach more customers.

Pointium effectively addresses these issues while providing more promotional opportunities for users and businesses. In particular, Pointium will provide a valuable experience to travelers by targeting the airline and other travel industries.
