Uniregistry will be removing TopCoin, the loyalty based rewards program offered when registering domain names.
Many people would always ask how they could use their TopCoins or what value they had.
From their website:
Topcoin is based on the belief that alternative currencies, and specifically those based on the Bitcoin protocol, will introduce creativity & lower transaction costs in almost all aspects of the financial system.
Topcoin is designed to disrupt customer loyalty-reward programs, an industry widely loved by consumers that has artificially high transaction costs. Like frequent flyer miles in the travel industry, Topcoin rewards purchasers of digital goods with currency that can be used to purchase additional related services. Topcoin’s initial applications are in the web site creation ecosystem, including domain names and web hosting.
Topcoin was created in September 2014 by Josh Jones and Michael Blend, two leading technology entrepreneurs based in Santa Monica, California.
Here is the email:
We are taking steps to remove TopCoin from our platform.
The decision to discontinue TopCoin did not come easily and was largely based on customer feedback and our desire to focus on in-house products and offerings.
Starting January 1st, 2019 we will no longer issue TopCoin as a reward currency.
Existing TopCoin owners will have until March 31st, 2019 to redeem their TopCoins with Uni and access their TopCoin account balance with us.
TopCoin will still be redeemable through approved TopCoin merchants. Please visit topcoin.com for more information.
