How does Mzaalo run its rewards system?
Mzaalo is built on Algorand blockchain to facilitate loyalty rewards and fan tokens to its users. The Algorand blockchain runs on delegated proof of stake that solves the Vitalik Buterin blockchain trilemma. Algorand bridges the gaps between security, decentralization and scalability.
The content library, user details and reward partners are stored on the Algorand blockchain to automate the rewards system without compromising on the privacy of the users and content aggregators. Every time a new user registers on the app – a wallet is created that holds the coins (XET coin) of individuals. These coins can redeem on Mzaalo’s partner brands.
Algorand also offers robust scalability making Mzaalo’s streaming experience and rewards earning and redemption even better. Unlike other blockchains that compromise on either security or the decentralization, Algorand on the other hand runs on a decentralized network making sure there is no app downtime. This makes the user experience seamless.
