PRESENTATION

A storm has hit the investment market which we are not going to recover from. Crypto investment is that storm. With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.

While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, Qiibee, a project banked on creating a loyalty protocol that provides a trustless, secure and provable manner for issuing loyalty tokens backed by a crypto asset across different blockchains has arrived.

Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.

What exactly is QIIBEE?

Qiibee is creating a loyalty protocol that provides a trustless, secure and provable manner for issuing loyalty tokens backed by a crypto asset across different blockchains.

Furthermore, The qiibee protocol provides a trustless, secure and provable manner for issuing loyalty tokens backed by a crypto asset across different blockchains. It also guarantees liquidity by allowing easy redemption, tradability and exit options.

The key components of the LoyaltyToken Protocol

Loyal customers

Real value, usability, freedom

Decentralized Loyalty Apps

Brands can build DAPPs for qiibee-based loyalty tokens

Software Development Kit

Web wallet and dashboards for loyalty token transparency

Blockchain Plug & Play

LoyaltyToken protocol, smart contracts for minting, staking, exchanging and transferring of loyalty tokens.

Everyone — loyalty program owners, companies, and developers — should be able to build their own applications without the hassle of integrating blockchain technology.

Connect to API

Easily connect to our API and set up your loyalty program.

Discover the SDK

Everything you need to set up, manage, and track your loyalty tokens.

Create your DAPP

Build your own decentralized application on top of our protocol.

Everything you need to get started

Qiibee provides an easy-to-connect means to start building loyalty programs on top of the qiibee protocol, an API that brands’s developers can use to easily communicate with the protocol and the blockchain.

The alpha version is already live, and we’re always improving the API to deliver a smoother, more straight forward experience.

With the qiibee API, you can:

Create loyalty tokens

Issue more supply

See relevant analytics, such as transaction history, current supply, and more

Exit the ecosystem

Set your LoyaltyToken settings — name, symbol, decimals, rate to QBX, etc.

Reward customers

Make tokens transferable at high speed and no cost

Qiibee's software development kit is comprised of the API, full documentation, tutorials and a user-friendly dashboard. We’re working hard to build the first brand-specific version of the dashboard, where brands can easily set up their loyalty programs through an straightforward visual interface.

Loyalty token creation

Use the token creation section to define your LoyaltyToken settings, including: token name, symbol, exchange rate to the QBX token, token image, description, etc.

Real-time information

Check the block explorer to see real-time information about the blockchain where your token lives and the latest transactions.

Analytics

Need some numbers? The dashboard’s analytics section provides all the important information about your LoyaltyToken: how many accounts hold your token, peak times for rewards, etc.

Build your DAPPs on top of our protocol

Brands can build their own wallet apps, where customers can track, send, and earn loyalty tokens. Best of all, it’s easy for developers to connect to our API and create their app.

One example of these DAPPs is our very own qiibee Wallet. We’ve just released the alpha version for iOS and Android.

Easy access

Store and find all your tokens in one place

Trade tokens

Exchange loyalty tokens for one other

Real value rewards

Sell your loyalty tokens for $, ¥‎, € or bitcoin

More secure

Blockchain technology protects your data

Plug & Play

Connect to our ecosystem and launch your token

Engaged customers

Higher engagement and customer lifetime value

Remove cost

Blockchain technology is very efficient and secure

Why do we need blockchain technology?

Blockchain provides an ideal framework for tackling the weaknesses of today’s loyalty market: points without a real value, trusted programs (weak data privacy), and highly centralized loyalty programs.

Decentralized loyalty apps. The qiibee wallet is one of the means by which loyal customers can interact with the LoyaltyToken Protocol. The qiibee wallet directly communicates with our API which talks to the protocol.

Software Development Kit (SDK)

The SDK streamlines and facilitates application development running on the LoyaltyToken Protocol, which saves the time, money, and extensive know-how required to build it from scratch. Loyalty program owners can focus on their businesses and their applications, while we support them with our SDK. The bigger the community maintaining and building on the qiibee protocol, the stronger qiibee’s loyalty ecosystem.

Qiibee’s LoyaltyToken Protocol

Our protocol provides a trustless, secure and provable manner for issuing loyalty tokens backed by a crypto asset across different blockchains. It also guarantees liquidity by allowing easy redemption, tradability and exit options.

Blockchain infrastructure

Our first implementation involves an Ethereum-based loyalty blockchain. The image below shows the qiibee vision in terms of its blockchain infrastructure:

The Ethereum-based loyalty blockchain provides and ensures high-speed transactions for low or no fees. These characteristics are key for an ecosystem that wants to offer microtransactions and be made mainstream.

What are the Benefits?

There are four key benefits when considering the Loyalty Token Protocol from a brand perspective:

Brands can “Plug & Play” with their loyalty program. How does it work? In a first step, the brand’s marketing department sets the budget for the loyalty program, which needs to be converted into brand loyalty tokens. The qiibee protocol then creates the brand tokens and sends them to the brand. It is important to highlight that the brand still has full control of the interaction with the customer, for instance over its individual app’s interface. In addition, the brand can also determine exactly how it wants to reward its loyal customers and how it wants to configure the redemption process.

Increased level of engagement a brand can achieve. It has full flexibility in the construction of its reward and redemption structure. The fluctuation of the brand’s token value in terms of FIAT also positively affects customer engagement, since customers are seemingly interested in the value of the tokens and are thereby incentivized to hold them for a longer period. On top of that, a brand can tap into a large loyalty community of existing customers on the qiibee ecosystem, which makes it easier to boost new loyalty programs and attain a wide customer reach.

Elimination of liabilities on the company’s balance sheet. Since the tokens that it will give out are tradeable and have a “real” value rather than constituting a promise from the company to be delivered in the future, the tokens will not be accounted for as deferred revenue.

Reduced costs and risk. Given that a brand’s program is built on the qiibee protocol, the set-up costs for a new program are very low. Customers are also responsible for their own wallets, so the risk of a massive data breach is mitigated.

Customer perspective

When looking at the customer perspective, there are again four key advantages of using qiibee for the collection of loyalty tokens:

Overview of all their loyalty tokens collected from different brands in the qiibee ecosystem. Customers can still use their favorite brands’ loyalty programs and interfaces and later import the collected tokens into one common place.

Transactions with their loyalty tokens. They can trade them with other customers in the ecosystem, send or receive tokens from others and participate in the different brands’ redemption offers.

All brand tokens are cryptocurrencies tied to the qiibee token (QBX), which will be publicly traded. This way, the brand tokens have a real value outside of the brand context.

Cash out. The qiibee ecosystem offers the customer the ability to sell loyalty tokens for FIAT or other cryptocurrencies via third party integrations.
