Fujitsu Limited Launches Cloud System To Promote Regional Revitalization
According to an official press release, IT giant Fujitsu has successfully tested a blockchain-based data storage system that can transform reward points or coupons into crypto tokens.

It promises to allow users to collect digital points by scanning QR codes at specific areas with their smart devices and exchange them for coupons and other benefits. The coupons in question can be later used at different outlets.
FISSBAS comes in the form of an API, and it can be easily implemented by customers into various types of applications, even without major blockchain experience and without a dedicated ICT environment.
Eyes on the future
By storing and processing the consumer usage transactions in a decentralized manner, the system is set to reduce the workload usually associated with typical data centers and improve the data analysis procedures.

Fujitsu also announced that the final product is a result of intensive trials by partnering with various organizations like railway companies, retail-related businesses, and telecom services. The company hopes to sell at least 100 units by the of the fiscal year 2020.
