These days, everyone is after ways to earn Bitcoin — and everyone is shopping online. So why not link the two? That’s what startup Lolli is doing. The company launched a new platform that allows you to earn free Bitcoin while you shop.
Lolli brings Bitcoin to everyday online shopping
Getting everyone involved in Bitcoin
Bitcoin is the most well-known cryptocurrency, and it’s getting a lot of attention from those in the finance industry. Stock traders are interested in it, but what about everyday people? Bitcoin has opportunities to help everyone to achieve the same benefits, but the currency isn’t as readily available in the mainstream right now. Lolli can change that.
How does Lolli work?
In short, Lolli is a rewards-like platform similar to the many others out there. When you use the app, you earn Bitcoin when you make a purchase through a wide range of retailers. At this time, there are over 500 participating companies involved.
If you are interested, all you have to do is download the browser extension. The process is easy, and it takes only a minute to download from the company’s site. This is also the place to check out the list of retailers participating in the service. (Wal-mart, Seat Geek, VRBO, Barnes & Noble, Sam’s Club, and CVS are some of the heavy hitters.) The company currently offers the service just for Chrome and Safari users. However, Lolli plans to offer more browser support in the future.
Then what happens?
When you activate Lolli and shop, you can earn as much as 30 percent back in Bitcoin rewards. The tool automatically alerts users when they are shopping on one of the approved and partner websites. Once the transaction is complete, you earn your sweet, sweet Bitcoin.
For those who want a Bitcoin version of a cash-back app, Lolli is the way to go.
