❓WHAT IS BLOOM?
🛒 Bloom is a shopper rewards app currently available in the Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand region (but we have plans to soon expand to more regions).
In its basic function, our user-friendly, web3 app allows users to earn rewards such as Bloom Coins and redeem coupons by shopping for items within our app’s eShop.
❓WHAT ARE BLOOM COINS?
Bloom Coins form our in-app reward system (like reward points). They can be used to redeem coupons and items in our store from many of our brand partners.
Our app also has a conversion tool that allows users to convert Bloom Coins earnt from every day spending into popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), Cardano (ADA), Polygon (MATIC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Cronos (CRO), Gala (GALA), Sandbox (SAND), Smooth Love Potion (SLP), Axie Infinity (AXS), Decentraland (MANA), and OKC Token (OKT).
❓ HOW DO YOU EARN BLOOM COINS?
📲 The initial step would be to download the Bloom app to your mobile device from either the App Store, Google Play or install the APK file directly.
📱 Once installed, you will need to register your account with a verified phone number and email address within the app.
Once your account is registered, you can now link your Visa credit or debit card. All activity on the card will earn Bloom Coin rewards at a rate of a 2% Basic basic reward.

❓ HOW IS BLOOM DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SHOPPER REWARDS APPS?
💫 Bloom is currently one of the only shopping rewards apps that allows you to earn points, rewards, NFTs and cryptocurrency by simply linking your card to the app.
🤝 A unique feature about Bloom is our strategic partnership with Visa. This enables us to support a seamless shopping experience with a streamlined rewards system. Bloom is not a payment gateway, nor do we require you to install a web browser extension or require our users to shop via links within our app. Our partnership with Visa enables all rebates to be rewarded automatically without requiring the user to open the app before making a purchase payment. Just swipe the card like you normally would, and watch your rewards grow in the App.
💰 We recognize the changing and evolving nature of commerce in the marketplace and are incorporating web3 and decentralized rewards and features into our app. Bloom is one of the only shopper rewards apps that allows the earning of cryptocurrency. Our Bloom in-app store even allows the possibility to purchase NFTs within the app. With Bloom, you will have access to cryptocurrencies and NFTs without any kind of deposit.
❓ DOES BLOOM OFFER ANY NEW USER REWARDS?
Bloom offers several rewards for new users when they join up and begin using our app.
🎁 New users will receive US$2 in Bitcoin when they link their Visa card for the first time.
🎁 New users will also receive US$2 in Bitcoin after they receive their first successful purchase rebate.
🎁 All users can also earn more by inviting friends to download the Bloom app and register. For each friend that joins, users will receive 2,000 Bloom Coins each.
