NEXT-ERA OF DIGITAL GIFT CARDS
Join the ecosystem of user-friendly, transparent, and high-security platform.
WHY YOU CHOOSE Amaten NFT
Gift card providers can simply join the platform and issue gift cards without paying expensive development cost for the system and pay monthly fees to maintain and manage it.
The cost of using the platform is billed on a pay-as-you-go basis, so there is no initial cost (*) and no need for expensive subscription fees.
* ETH will be charged separately for the deployment of NFT smart contracts only once upon entry into the platform.
The contract name of the NFT smart contract is deployed as the name of the gift card provider.
Anyone can identify the provider of the NFT at any time on the blockchain network.
You don’t have to give up your existing point/mileage program.
Amaten NFT is linkable to your CRM/point programs via API.
The configuration of this API can be developed and provided independently according to the system environment of the provider.
All authentication information of customers and providers is managed externally by IDaaS (Identity as a Service), not in Amaten NFT's server DB, which guarantees extremely high security compared to managing them independently.
Amaten is currently the leading Japanese secondary marketplace for gift cards.
We’ve been operating an Exchange for gift cards such as Amazon, Google and Apple for more than 12 years with USD 110million sales per year, which is 75% of the market shares in Japan. And now we’re developing a new type of blockchain based NFT gift card and NFT point reward program for the past 3 years. This is because the conventional gift card systems are facing issues such as fraudulent , errors, slow speed in exchange as well as high cost on managing & maintenance.
Our new product will solve those issues and once the system is launched in Q1 2022, Amaten’s blockchain solution will be used by 500+ hotels chain and AMA will be exclusively used as the utility token in the ecosystem. We are eyeing to expand into airline loyalty program as well. Imagine the demand it may create to AMA and Amaten ecosystem! Don’t be late!
Amaten will disrupt the existing gift card industry and force the current paradigm into redundancy.
