Liven is a market leading incentive-based mobile payments gateway and ecosystem purpose built for the lifestyle and dining industry. Hundreds of thousands of people use Liven to discover thousands of restaurants, process millions in instant mobile payments, and earn LVN - The Digital Currency for Food. LVN can be saved up, exchanged freely, spent at any Liven merchant, or donated to a nonprofit organisation within the Liven platform, natively.
Blockchain platforms and cryptocurrencies are designed to interface only with other decentralised applications, creating a ‘utopian problem’ wherein cryptocurrencies cannot achieve usability as mediums of exchange, and therefore penetrate mainstream consumer to business transactions.
Fragmented Loyalty Models
The loyalty incentive scheme does not work for the small to medium enterprise, nor the consumer. Point models provide hazy, obscure imitations of value in exchange for unwavering loyalty to a single brand, offering no flexibility or rich benefit to customers, and in turn dramatically reduce effectiveness for merchants.
Payments as a Utility
The payments processing industry and established networks have regressed in innovation resulting in a utility product that no longer offers significant competitive advantage for either business or consumer. Payments as a business product now represent a stagnant entity that focus solely on processing speed while interchange fees increase and benefits diminish.
The Liven Platform enables crypto-payments to be simplified and facilitated through traditional financial infrastructure, bringing never before seen accessibility and a clear consumer use case to daily transactions for mass consumption.
Already transacting at thousands of merchants.
The Liven Network is a three part ecosystem: With the consumer at the heart, the Liven platform acts as an incentive based payment network, an always-on marketing solution for small businesses and a passive fundraising tool for charities.
As Liven Tokens flow freely througout the ecosystems major nodes, consumers and businesses alike can exchange LVN freely in a speculative market and have the opportunity to benefit from supply and demand dynamics.
The LVN Token is a network utility reward token built on the foundation of Liven’s overwhelmingly successful network credit currency ‘Liven Cash’. Rewarded to users when transacting, and already accepted by thousands of merchants as a whole or split payment currency. The network value of LVN is dynamically fixed to the reward curve, an algorithm that adjusts the spending power of LVN to be greater as more rewards are paid out to customers.
At the core of the LivenPay project sits the Reward Protocol and the LivenPay API, respectively a decentralised mechanism for distributing variable LVN as rewards for transactions, while dynamically adjusting the value of LVN, and, a crypto-payments API for small businesses, enabling fiat, cryptocurrency, or mixed payments, rewards, and wallet facilities.
