St. Thomas, USVI, Oct. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Crypto digital banking firm Juno has raised $18 million in a Series A funding round to expand products and operations, and launch its first tokenized loyalty program.

Juno is a digital banking platform that encourages users to spend crypto in their everyday transactions. Its flagship product is the Juno card, where users can transact with Circle’s stablecoin USDC.

As part of the fundraising, Juno is introducing a loyalty token, Juno coin (JCOIN), which will only be distributed to verified account holders. The loyalty program will be similar to traditional credit card rewards points. Juno members can earn JCOIN for taking their paychecks in crypto, or spending crypto with their Juno debit card.

“We think these banks are not crypto-friendly,” Brett “Mac” McClafferty, the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Mac Private Equity said. The aim of the loyalty program, he explains, is to incentivize those already predisposed to using crypto to fundamentally replace their traditional banking stack.

“Earning and using crypto are critical financial primitives for creating and growing a circular crypto economy, and this tokenized loyalty program is meant to further accelerate the growth of this crypto economy,” added McClafferty. “What Juno is doing can certainly disrupt traditional banking markets, and as investors, that’s where the true value is.”
