Embodiments of the present invention are directed to methods and systems for the efficient management of a digital currency system using a cryptocurrency scheme. Embodiments utilize a payment processor computer to manage entities in the digital currency system, which have the rights to generate, distribute, transact with, and redeem units of a digital currency. In some embodiments, the digital currency may represent points in a loyalty program operated by an entity or organization. Transactions performed using the digital currency and rules governing the digital currency can be tracked and maintained in a master ledger maintained by the payment processor computer, and distributed as sub-ledgers to other entities within the digital currency system.
