Investing.com – Mode Global (LON:MODE) shares plunged almost 20% at the open on Friday after the company said some brands had withdrawn from the company’s Bitcoin Cashback affiliate programme.

On Thursday, the London-listed fintech announced that Ocado (LON:OCDO), Boots, and Homebase were among over 40 retailers that would be using Mode’s standalone affiliate product where users could earn Bitcoin cashback on purchases. 

However, Mode has today attempted to clarify information related to yesterday’s announcement.

“The Company reaffirms that it will launch its standalone affiliate product in Q2 2022, which will see Mode customers receiving Bitcoin Cashback from participating online retailers in the UK.

“Currently, over 40 online retailers have accepted Mode onto their affiliate programmes.

“As with all affiliate programmes of this nature, it is at the discretion of the retailer as to how long they wish to remain involved in the programme.

“Some of those specified brands have since withdrawn Mode as an affiliate.”

It is unclear which of the previously mentioned brands has now withdrawn from the programme.

Mode confirmed that the full list of participating retailers, as well as the terms of the programme, will be available on the Mode app at the time of launch, which is still expected to occur in the second quarter of next year.

At 08:47GMT, Mode Global Holdings shares were trading lower by 15.6% at 34.18 pence per share.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
