Vancouver, Canada / November 18, 2019 / Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET / OTCQB:GLNNF / FKT:GJT) (“Glance” or the “Company”) one of Canada’s leading mobile payments and customer loyalty platforms, is pleased to announce that it has been nominated for FinTech Company of the Year at the 5th Annual Canadian FinTech & AI Awards. The winner will be announced on November 18th at an awards gala in Toronto.
This award is presented to an established FinTech company in Canada that has provided financial products or services for over four years and is actively engaged in innovation creation.
“Being nominated for this award is an honour,” said Glance’s Interim CEO Jonathan Hoyles. “We are thrilled to receive this recognition for our innovation and collaboration in the mobile payments and digital loyalty space. It’s a testament to our team’s dedication to make mobile payments frictionless, fast and easy while also making it more rewarding and engaging.”
In addition to being nominated for FinTech Company of the Year, Glance has also been nominated in two other categories: Blockchain Company of the Year and Payments Company of the Year.
Last year, Glance filed a provisional patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office directed at methods, systems and techniques for cryptographic token transfers. The technology described in this patent would allow merchants to reward customers and provide them with deals and incentives via loyalty reward tokens that could be transferred or converted to other digital currencies.
“The aim for Glance is to make digital currency payments practical for day-to-day payment situations,” said Hoyles. “We believe there are significant opportunities for the early pioneers such as Glance in this space.”
