What is the Belfast Coin?

Belfast Coin is launching this autumn as part of the smart city challenge with Belfast City Council. The Belfast Coin is a digital coin that is used to encourage the people of Belfast to use the network of merchants around the city and to reward them for behaviours that are aligned with making Belfast a more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive city for everyone.

How does it work?

The Belfast Coin operates within the Colu app as a reward scheme. The people of Belfast will accumulate Belfast Coins in their Colu digital wallet in return for everyday activities which benefit the city, such as shopping locally. The Belfast Coin can only be used as payment at participating merchants in Belfast.

Why should my business be part of the Belfast Coin-Colu platform?

Belfast Coin will drive new customers through your door, retain your current customers via Colu’s rewards and enhance your brand awareness with marketing to our user network.
