Inspiration

Our project is inspired by the fact that Affiliate Marketing is one of the lesser tapped innovations in the space of Blockchain. One such space is the Reward Points industry. Reward Points has been one of the popular ways of interacting with customers and getting them to invest more in products. But of late, this industry lacks innovation and the customer base is thinning out rapidly. To bring an innovative angle to both awarding and redeeming reward points, we bring to you - Raga Rewards.

What it does

Our system can be used by organizations to issue reward points to the users in the form of NFTs. The users can claim these NFTs and redeem them at a physical location for a discount or they can exchange them for other reward points on our platform facilitating a barter system.

How we built it

We built it using the NEO Blockchain. We used the base C# NFT Smart Contracts and tweaked them to our problem statement. We also used the neon.js library to connect the front end to the smart contracts.

Challenges we ran into

The setup was a huge challenge for us in the beginning. It was fairly difficult to understand the smart contracts and get them deployed on the private network. Invoking with the right parameters was challenging as well.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We built an end-to-end workflow that can mint, transfer and redeem reward points for both organizations and users.

What we learned

NEO Blockchain - how does it function, how to write NEO Smart contracts in C# and Python. Research data about reward points and their lifecycle.

What's next for RaGa - Your reward points in your pocket

We hope to apply for a grant to continue working on our project.
