Bitcoin Rewards

The more bitcoin develops, the more it seems the world is finding all kinds of new uses for it that can revolutionize so many industries across the world. One use of bitcoin that hasn’t been done very much before is the creation of a rewards system in the currency. Qualtrics, a market research firm has added bitcoin rewards to their site in exchange for completing surveys. 

Online survey giant Qualtrics has added bitcoin as a rewards option for consumers who respond to surveys and research requests issued by its enterprise clients.

The Utah company, which is valued north of $1bnfollowing a $150m Series B in 2014, boasts more than 700 employees and investors including Sequoia Capital and Accel Partners. The offering was made possible by bitcoin payments processor SnapCard‘s recent integration with digital rewards platform Tango Card.

Consumers who want to access the platform to obtain rewards points must first sign up to the service to begin taking surveys. Once Qualtrics users earn 50 points for their participation, they receive a Tango Card gift code, which can then be redeemed for Amazon

 and Target gift cards as well as bitcoin.

Qualtrics head of strategy and research Mike Maughan indicated that by offering bitcoin as a rewards option, he believes the company’s clients will be more easily able to reach the increasingly important millennial demographic.

Maughan told CoinDesk:

“Millennials are most familiar with and most likely to be part of the bitcoin movement. A lot of millennials are more on the cutting edge of bitcoin, and those are among the people that are most sought after for their insights right now.”
