Congratulations to the winner of the 2019 SLP Hackathon, Project Ignite with their loyalty points system, Hamingja. Hamingja is a loyalty points system using non-tradable SLP tokens. The key component is SLP transactions combined with BCH checkdatasig covenants. Benefits are that it is easy to use, a cheaper altenative solution for merchants, portable, durable, reliable, and poses no privacy issues for users. 

Congratulations also to the other teams who participated. All teams produced truly exceptional and innovative projects utilizing the Simple Ledger Protocol.
