In any case, these "coins" are like what other companies already have had.
"flight miles", "points per purchase $", etc. On all of those you can buy extra points/miles, etc, ad then use to redeem stuff or services.

CN: Nothing new here. Its just another points based system, but with a shinier name.
There is a hardware/automotive chain in Canada called Canadian Tire that has used it's own "currency" for decades. You get something like 1% back in Canadian Tire money on every purchase. There are a few other stores around that have signs saying "We accept Canadian Tire money" so it is effectively a real currency is some towns.
