Transactions with a registered EasyCard at participating businesses will generate reward points, which can then be accumulated to exchange for various rewards. Finally, the user behavior big data can then be utilized for efficient advertisement activities and other business opportunities.
The CoinU business model requires strategic involvement with 4 market segments: A smart card company, a financial institute, a mobile network operator, and businesses as participating merchants. The business model for CoinU will adjust appropriately depending on the chronological order of when the 4 group decides to form a partnership. The revenue model will be primarily based on transaction commission, with additional income based on promotional contracts with members of either of the 4 involving market segments.

The company is expecting a return of 4.3 million revenue in the first 16 months, which will grow to 43 million by year 5. Once transaction-based revenue is stable, several options are available, such as international expansion. Exit strategies are also viable through selling the company or becoming a controlled company through M&A by one of the starting partners including EasyCard Corporation.
