VIII. Why does AlchemyPay issue ACH?
Use ACH to make payments in global stores

Most of these merchants are connected directly before the issuance of ACH, so AlchemyPay needs to bear a lot of market costs and training costs, and It is very difficult to control budgets and distribute rewards reasonably; but after enabling ACH incentives, the value of ACH will be anchored with marketing costs, and supernodes (such as payment institutions, SaaS companies, e-commerce groups, etc.) will assume the market The responsibility of promoting and training nodes (merchants), the system will be based on the supernodes and nodes that accept digital currency payments, and will be rewarded based on the connection time, node level, and transaction volume, so as to promote the digital currency payment scene in the world more quickly set up;
