WineRewards uses Redtie and TieCoins
About Redtie: Redtie is the administrative portal used as the gateway for you to manage your WineRewards program. Redtie lets you manage customer contact information, send text messages with or without a WineReward, look at metrics and a host of other features that are part of the WineRewards program.
About TieCoins: WineRewards uses TieCoins to start and manage Your WineRewards campaigns like; generating a QR code to collect customer’s information in your tasting room and starting a survey.
What's a WineReward?
WineRewards uses the TieCoins technology which are blockchain tokens given to customers for interacting with you. TieCoins are ERC20 compliant cryptographic tokens and viewable on the blockchain using a public key. WineRewards are part of the TieCoins Token Ecosystem. When a customer joins WineRewards a cryptographic wallet is created for you and all WineRewards earned go into their wallet.
A blockchain is a digital record of transactions.
in which individual records, called blocks, are linked together in single list,
called a chain. Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with cryptocurrencies,
and other applications. Each transaction added to a blockchain is
validated by multiple computers which are configured to monitor
specific types of blockchain transactions.
They work together to ensure each transaction is valid before it is added to the blockchain. The decentralized network of computers ensures a single system cannot add invalid blocks to the chain. When a new block is added to a blockchain, it is linked to the previous block using a cryptographic hash generated from the contents of the previous block. This ensures the chain is never broken and that each block is permanently recorded.
