LINE Adds Link Point Cryptocurrency to its Token Economy
The company announced the launch of the new cryptocurrency and dApps in a post published on its website on Friday (September 28, 2018). According to the statement, LINK Point, the new token would be available to Japanese residents. The dApps will also cater to selected categories.
Earlier in the month, LINE announced that due to licensing restrictions, its LINK cryptocurrency wouldn’t be available to users in Japan and the United States. Hence, the reason for the creation of LINK Point.
According to the company, LINK Point will serve as incentives for Japanese customers on the LINE blockchain ecosystem. The new cryptocurrency will be convertible to LINE Points which the company says can be used to pay for services across LINE’s various platforms.
However, LINK Point will not be a tradable token on the company’s BITBOX cryptocurrency exchange platform. In June, LINE announced the launch of BITBOX in Singapore as a statement of intent in its cryptocurrency and blockchain technology expansion. BITBOX focuses solely on crypto-crypto trading pairs.
