That'll be 20 bucks please. Cash, credit or crypto?
« on: April 20, 2015, 07:52:58 PM »

I've seen quite a few Point Of Sale (POS) systems out there, a few of them now have a screen for accepting Bitcoin too, all of which use Bitpay.
 
One of the services that the BitShares Munich DAC will offer is the sale and install of POS systems.
It needs to be open source, tie into inventory, have a barcode scanner on the bottom, a card swiper on the side and the screen (ie: http://www.bitstraat.nl/en/product/the-handheld/) needs to allow for cash, credit or crypto (ANY crypto, so it has to be modular).
 
Does anyone here know of a github user or anyone working on this already?
Ideas..?

I can't wait for the day when i'm out with group of folks for dinner and the bill comes with a QR code on it. Instead of of fumbling with cash and credit cards, everyone just scans the bills and sends their portion. Or one persons pays and everyone just sends their portion to the payer.

That's when you know crypto has arrived.

We're getting close. My R&D work on Point Of Sale systems is paying off.
The serious lack of open source crypto-enabled POS systems has opened a LOT of doors for BitShares.
 
Bitcoin was a great start, but working with these 10 second bitAsset and BTS transactions has only secured this even further.
I'm hoping to get my POS Working Group in full swing in the next few weeks. I'll post my progress in here as we go.

I don't see why you would even need a POS to pay with BitEUR/BitUSD .. ANY internet-connected device that can display a QR code would be sufficient ..
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

Exactly.
Even the higher-end handhelds support HTML5 and CSS3 now :)
