Rakuten to Allow to Convert Loyalty Points to Crypto

Rakuten Super Points can be exchanged for three cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash, but customers must have Rakuten Wallet

The trading platform of the Japanese financial services giant Rakuten Wallet will allow Rakuten Group customers to convert loyalty points into digital assets.

According to the company this Tuesday, Rakuten Super Points can be exchanged for three cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash. Previously, customers will have to register an account with Rakuten Wallet. The minimum amount for an exchange is 100 points. During such operations, the rate of one “super point” will be set at the level of one yen ($ 0.0091).

Through the launch of the new service, Rakuten Wallet hopes to reduce the barriers of entry to crypto asset trading by providing an easy and more accessible way for new users to start, including novice users who are interested in crypto asset trading with no prior experience. The service also increases the range of uses for Rakuten Super Points across the Rakuten Group’s ecosystem of services, making the Rakuten loyalty membership program even more attractive and convenient.

Restrictions on the amount of one transaction apply, as well as the amount of points available for conversion per month - up to 500,000 ($ 4,570). Initially, the service will be available only to users of the Android application, but next month its support will be implemented in the iOS application.

The public launch of Rakuten Wallet took place this August. The exchange is one of the few regulated entities for cryptocurrency trading in Japan.
