All fiat transactions are facilitated by and the responsibility of this 3rd party provider. As part of the Service the Pearls wallet allows users to create and manage branded digital coins (Tokens). These Tokens are used as a sales incentive and loyalty program and have no monetary (fiat) value in their own right. They are not redeemable or refundable for fiat. Their value is limited to the value assigned to them by the user who created them. Their value is directly linked to goods and services offered by the user who created them on the terms and conditions stated on their offer.
Users acknowledge that these Tokens only represent the value offered by the user who created them, on the terms assigned to them and these terms and subsequent value may vary from time to time, be canceled and / or deleted altogether. Tokens are a store of value that has been assigned to them by the user. The App simply records this value and allows it to be exchanged as and when the user sees fit. So Tokens are simply a record or a ledger entry of this value (once created).
Treasure Map charges a service fee to create a users Tokens and manage their ledger.
