Once users have checkout out of the Bjork store, they are invited to claim rewards (in this case Audiocoins) at MyBlockpool, the hub of Blockpool's blockchain integration technology. In this first iteration, users can select rewards from brands, create wallets for Blockpool (BPL) coins along with Bitcoin, Litecoin, Audiocoin and Dash. They can move coins around, engage with the geolocation app to earn mobile rewards and engage with crypto in an easy to use none technical way.
