Concept:

These tokens are called merchant tokens. GAT is the primary token in this system, and consumers can use their GAT to acquire merchant tokens or to convert their merchant tokens to GAT on the GAT Exchange. It will be the exclusive currency for the trade of Merchant Tokens and incentivizes users. They use targeted airdrop technology to send crypto-currencies to mobile phones by geo-location. Their platform is global, and will offer access to a retail network of 60,000+ stores and 21 major global brands in 2018.

Usage:

GAT forms the backbone of the GAT System. As such GAT can be traded for Merchant Tokens to redeem them for products and services. Whereas Merchant Tokens are created by merchants and run on private blockchains, GAT are ERC20 Ethereum tokens and are: Available during token sale Limited supply of GAT Will circulate on the main Ethereum public network Freely transferable and tradable on major exchanges Storable in all major client-wallets The currency on the platform with which Merchant Tokens can be bought. They do not represent discounts or similar functionality May be exchanged for Merchant Tokens on the GAT Exchange Used by merchants to pay for services in the GAT system (“Merchant Fees”) All FIAT (traditional currencies like USD/HKD/EUR) will be converted to GAT in the GAT System Unlimited lifespan Required to use any advanced features on the platform Giving users a higher chance of getting better deals, if they hold more GAT Will be sold on the platform for FIAT currencies GAT is at core of the merchant’s reward ecosystem. It is necessary to obtain GAT in order to obtain access to the services on the GAT ecosystem. For merchants, it serves as a payment mechanism. For users, it serves as a way to unlock special discounts and to exchange Merchant Tokens. They serve different roles for both these parties and hence offer different utility to them.

Competitors

ICO-Competitors

There are some other players attempting to decentralize the rewards marketplace but GATCOIN has several advantages in comparison: Merchant Tokens are decoupled from the GAT token, making it possible to migrate to a different technology (blockchain/hashgraph/etc.) in future if there are issues with Ethereum. GATCOIN has strong corporate partnerships with SK Planet Japan (SKPJ) to deploy digital tokens using the GAT System in 2018 upon completion of milestones. SKPJ is a leading consumer rewards service company and member of one of the largest conglomerates in Korea. GAT digital tokens are planned to be used in SKPJ’s retail gift voucher program, COTOCO. GATCOIN is more focused on minimising overhead by allowing merchants to initiate their own reward options.
