Consumer Centric Payments

Liven is consumer centric business first, blockchain product second. Transitioning to a token economy serves to add a layer of choice, and a feeling of intrinsic value to Liven’s existing wallet platform. We’re integrating cryptocurrency into a product that works for real people in cities and communities around the world, bringing access and reason to a space dominated by speculative instruments and lofty protocols.

LVN Token

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.

Reward Protocol

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, along with donations, promotions, and wallet facilities.
