What is iVendPay you might wonder? iVendPay is the world’s first multi-currency payment system that allows you to accept payments in cryptocurrencies, electronic money or fiat.

There are over 18,000,000 vending machines worldwide. iVendPay allows each of those vending machines to start accepting cryptocurrency payments, simply by installing their plug-and-play vending machine module. Installing their module is as simple as connecting one cable! The average vending machine accounts for $76 of revenue every week, coming down to an estimated global revenue of over $71,000,000,000. With iVendPay, Viacoin is able to enter this multi-billion dollar market!

Let’s start off by saying that we hope everybody had a great Christmas! Looking back at 2018 puts a huge smile on our faces (besides having to survive during the incredibly harsh bear market). As our current roadmap shows we have made an incredible amount of progress on the Viacoin development such as General Bytes ATM support, Trezor support, BTCpay support, several Viacoin Lightning Network implementations, several Viacoin Core and Vialectrum updates, releasing our user friendly Viacoin Copay wallets and much more! We are planning to continue this line of development in 2019 and release even more amazing things. …

We are excited to announce that Viacoin is now one of the few cryptocurrencies that can be used as a payment method on Bitcoin Superstore. Bitcoin Superstore offers a great range of giftcards from Wallmart, Nike, Starbucks, Amazon, Visa and many more. Beside offering giftcards you can also use their website to purchase goods from over 200,000 retailers!

Yesterday we became aware of a reported Copay Github issue, claiming a dependency attack that could steal the private keys from Copay wallets. As you may know, Viacoin Copay was forked from the original Copay wallet and shares most of its code. As soon as we heard about the malicious code our developers individually ran several tests. Our developers came to the unanimous conclusion that Viacoin Copay was NOT affected by the malicious attack, meaning that your private keys (and funds) are safe.
