In the first phase of this proof-of-concept (POC) program, the goal is to provide discounts of up to 50% on popular milk tea brands across over 500 shops in Southeast Asia. There are plans to increase access to more than 2,000 shops, Avalanche wrote in the blog post.

According to the platform, users will be able to get vouchers when they play a branded mini game.

In the second phase, the program will expand to include food and beverage merchants. The project will aim to reach over 100 million users across the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand. It will also be open to Chinese citizens visiting these countries as tourists.

Alipay+ e-wallet partners in Southeast Asia can offer these services. All they need to do is integrate Alipay+ D-store and activate Avalanche’s Web3 capabilities.

JPMorgan, Citibank, Deloitte and blockchain game SHRAPNEL are some of the top users of AvaClound. Meanwhile, Avalanche (AVAX) is currently the 10th largest cryptocurrency by market cap at $20.2 billion.
