Bitcoin rewards gain prominence

Several crypto rewards platforms are offering users the ability to get Bitcoin for their everyday spending. Wirex is a fiat and crypto payment platform that recently announced a 1.5% Bitcoin rewards for shoppers. Alibaba and Loli’s rewards are much higher than that.

Loli was founded in 2018 after the crypto price boom made the digital assets more mainstream. It is currently offering a crypto rewards program on 750 eCommerce websites including prominent names like Macy’s, Groupon and Walmart. The rewards are available only to US customers right now, and Chinese buyers will not be able to make use of the service.
