Buck-e is an online reward system that stimulates children and their parents to choose an active, healthy and ecological way to go to school.
Children of participating schools receive an RFID-tag which they can attach to their bicycle or backpack. When they pass the RFID-scanner at school, an activity is registered and a certain amount of points will appear on an online account, turned into Bucks. These bucks can be used at local shops, fairs, events etc, boosting the local economy of your neighbourhood.
Local authorities and schools participating in the program also receive access to an online platform, displaying some interesting statistics about the project: how many kilometres have been done by the children and the amount of fuel use and CO2 spread that has been avoided.
Buck-e’s total package includes the hardware, software and logistics services to service the authorities and schools. In addition to the technical expertise of Flow Pilots, The Studio (by Belfius) supplies the bank licence and the blockchain platform to be in line with e-money legislation.
Flow Pilots delivers all the required hardware (RFID-readers, RFID-tags and payment card with a barcode) and software (online dashboard for governments and schools with statistics, online dashboard for parents on which they can track their children’s progress and an iOS and Android application for merchants on which they can receive the bucks). The roll-out of the project is also entirely taken care of.
For the financial aspect of Buck-e we incorporated blockchain to process the financial transactions.
