Thanks for the response. I'm looking for a more comprehensive way to learn it though.


In general, I like to give new technologies/apps a chance. I have spent some time looking at the payment space and the concept of "treats" is at least interesting. I think the name "treats" undermines what it does.

If you swipe their debit card seven times you get one of these "treats". If this caught on, the network effect may arise where people start paying for friends coffees/small gifts. The question is, is the value of rewards that are giftable > credit card's value. Not sure that it is but I'm also not sure that it is not.

The comments have been brutal but I wouldn't completely dismiss the concept just yet.


Really awesome stuff!
