How it Works

FlyCoin (FLY) are crypto tokens minted on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain (using the ERC-20 protocol). That means there's a limited supply that is completely transparent. It also means anybody can accept, spend, or trade FLY without needing permission.

Work Process

Fly anywhere, FLY everywhere.

At first glance, FLY look and act just like regular frequent flier miles. But by being a real cryptocurrency under the hood:

  • FLY can be earned via many partners.

  • FLY never expire... you truly own them.

  • FLY allow permissionless transfer and exchange.

  • FLY allow travelers to delve into crypto with no risk.

Frequently Asked Questions

It's really pretty straightforward.

What is FlyCoin and how is it different from legacy travel loyalty programs?

FlyCoin represents the evolution of loyalty programs. We’ve applied the principles of cryptocurrency and blockchain to create a new kind of loyalty program that’s free from the limitations of today’s programs. Airlines and hotels restrict their members to systems that only allow for certain redemptions as prescribed by them. FlyCoin changes all of that by allowing you to use rewards the way you want to—whether that’s redeeming them for an airfare, a preflight meal at the airport, or, unique to FlyCoin, Bitcoin or U.S. dollars.

Unlike the loyalty programs of today, where rewards are increasingly harder to redeem and constantly devalued, rewards earned through FlyCoin actually appreciate over time, offering members an opportunity to make a low-risk investment in the future of money. Our goal is to provide a program that untethers you from the constraints of today’s loyalty programs and is actually loyal to you, the customer, instead of airlines or credit card companies.

What is the currency called?

Each unit of currency is known as a FlyCoin token, or “FLY” .. which will be the ticker symbol (like BTC or ETH) when FlyCoin trades on exchanges.

How does each FLY get its value?

FlyCoin Partners have to agree to always accept FLY as a currency for the service they offer, at a floor value (currently set to $0.02/FLY). Because you can use FLY for things like air travel on Ravn Alaska or Northern Pacific Airways, it's useful and therefore has value.

Where is FLY stored?

The tokens themselves are on the Ethereum blockchain, though they've also been bridged to Polygon, Solana, and Binance Smart Chain. Individual holders will be able to custody their FLY with flycoin.org or the original partner where they earned them. If they're so inclined, they can also withdraw their FLY to their own crypto wallet (we recommend MetaMask.

How do I earn FLY?

Right now you can earn FLY on all Ravn Alaska flights. And soon, you’ll be able to earn and redeem with Northern Pacific Airways, which is scheduled to launch flights in summer 2022. We’re working closely with the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport as well as other businesses in the Anchorage, Alaska area to set up partnerships so travelers can earn FLY on a wide range of purchases, from a morning coffee to a beer at the airport, or even a glacier tour in Alaska. Other launch partners will be announced soon!

Can I buy FLY?

No. Currently FLY must be earned by using the services of a FlyCoin partner.

How do I redeem FLY?

Currently FLY can be redeemed for flights at Ravn Alaska at the rate of $0.02/FLY. Soon you will be able to redeem FLY with other partners or sell it on crypto exchanges.

Does FLY expire?

No. It's a real cryptocurrency and you can even have full custody of it if you'd like!

What kind of compliance measures is FLY bound by?

We are obliged to comply with extensive and evolving regulations. Our team is dedicated to ensuring FlyCoin remains compliant with all federal and local regulations.

I don’t understand cryptocurrency or blockchain. What do I need to know about them to understand FLY?

Don’t worry if you find the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain confusing. We get it. Traditional loyalty programs essentially “print” more rewards, but FLY will have a finite supply, coupled with broad distribution. As more partners come on board with FlyCoin, they will be able to purchase more FLY to issue to their customers in the form of rewards. This means that the only way to acquire FLY is by earning it through flying, or eventually purchases at everyday retailers, allowing FLY to appreciate and acquire real value as a currency.

What if I don’t want to earn crypto?

Don’t want crypto? No problem. You can redeem your FLY for travel miles just as you would with any other airline or hotel program, or you may use them to pay for purchases in the airport like a preflight drink, meals, or even magazines and books to read on board. Finally, you can convert FLY to cash, so that can be deposited directly into your bank account.
