The following is an update on the additional progress Giftz has made to date.
Giftz has received an investment from a family office in Asia and are taking meetings with additional investors to close our round!! We are also an investment in the Draper Venture Network (DVN). Click here to see DVN listing.
Giftz is sponsoring CIS in October and CEO, John Paukulis will be speaking.
Giftz is in the top 100 finalists for the 2019 Most Fundable Companies initiative at Pepperdine Graziadio Business School. Thousands of early-stage U.S. companies with less than $10 million in annual revenue participated in the initiative, which is designed to bridge the gap between startups and the capital they need to succeed.
The team has decided to go Mobile First for the consumer MVP (tokenized value wallet) as we test and finalize our Merchant Rewards Tokenizer and Rewards Token Exchange.
We have further refined our MVP to focus on earning and trading of tokenized Gift Cards for consumers. Our MVP focus will enable Giftz to get to market quicker and offer compelling value to tokenized Gift Card purchases (such as improved trading prices and transferability).
Giftz has filed a provisional patent to protect our IP around permission based posting of points in a rewards feed.
We are hoping to integrate VAtomic (Blockv) for our location based Augmented Reality ("find cash, not Pokemon"). We are working with both a new Blockchain Development company for our exchange integration and local app developers in addition to our India team.
