Background
The coupon industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, with a projected 145 million users in the U.S., alone.
https://www.statista.com/topics/1156/coupon-market-trends-in-the-united-states/
The cost of issuing digital coupons currently requires the services of third-party companies that charge hundreds, if not thousands of dollars a month. One example of such a service is passkit.

What is a universal coupon?
At its essence a universal coupon is a promise of value from issuer to recipient. This presents a perfect opportunity to demonstrate the utility of two Goguen-era features: Native Assets and Metadata

 

User Story
A small business owner, (aka “client-issuer”), uses a paid-service via web interface to create digital coupons in the form of a native asset. The native asset includes meta-data that specifies the terms of the coupon. The simple contract proves issue/recipient, thus could used as proof of “meeting of the minds,” should there be disagreement requiring legal remedy.

 

Benefits
— Low cost
— Offer of services means client-issuer, nor customer-recipient would need to own/understand cryptocurrency
— Definition of a coupon is extended to mean “Discount Purchase Agreement,” e.g. “Alice pays Bob $1000 for $2000 of future services.”

— Because native assets can be destroyed, expired coupons will not pollute the ledger

 

Project Cost

Wage: $25/hr, 20 hrs/wk, 26 wks – $13000

Proposal

Schedule
Project completion estimat – 6 months
