First Marketplace with ‘Get Bitcoin SV-Back’ Loyalty System – Users Benefit from New Crypto Wallet Functionality and BSV Loyalty Program
TORONTO, Canada – Mijem Inc., the Canada-based social marketplace and technology company, closed a follow-on investment in its RTO concurrent financing with noted technology entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, founder of venture capital firm Ayre Ventures. Mijem Inc., having recently amalgamated into Mijem Newcomm Tech Inc., is currently trading on the CSE under ticker MJEM.
Mijem Newcomm Tech Inc. is the developer of the popular Mijem social marketplace, an intuitive online platform and application ecosystem that connects students with their peers to efficiently buy, sell and trade goods and services. Mijem social marketplaces center around Gen Z communities, including post-secondary institutions, in the United States and Canada. To date, Mijem has established relationships with more than 70 university and college communities, including those at the University of Texas, the University of Toronto, the University of British Columbia, the University of Michigan and the University of Miami.
Commenting on the investment, Ayre Ventures founder Calvin Ayre, said, “Mijem’s integrated Bitcoin SV (BSV) loyalty system is a key development for its users because Bitcoin SV is an everyday digital currency with important advantages with regard to scalability, speed, eco-friendly footprint, and low costs. We see a great opportunity to continue working with their team to further develop the Mijem offering with Bitcoin SV and play a part in their ongoing success story.”
Mijem founder Phuong Dinh said, “Bitcoin SV is what the original Bitcoin white paper envisioned, namely, a fast, inexpensive, peer-to-peer electronic cash system – and all these characteristics are important for Mijem’s Gen Z target market. Mijem is connecting communities, building trust, and providing features like links to digital asset wallets and BSV rewards that Gen Z demands. On behalf of Mijem, I’d like to thank Ayre Ventures for their investment and continued support.”
