Meet Dappos! An Ethereum based Point of Sale (POS) system for an excellent retail experience.

Dappos is a simple and intuitive POS, suited for any shop or merchant. It can be opened in the browser of a mobile Ethereum wallet like Trust Wallet. Then just type an amount, tap charge and you can get paid directly to your wallet! We feel that this is the simplest way for any shop to offer Ethereum as a payment option to your customers.

Easy Ethereum payments, for all businesses

Our mission is to make it possible for anyone to easily accept crypto currency payments. That’s why we really focussed on the ease of use. There shouldn’t be any annoying sign-up procedures or high inital fees.

We are developing Dappos open source and are not taking any fees! Therefore it’s also perfectly suited for small businesses.
Furthermore, with Ethereum the confirmation speed is rather fast and we believe the Ethereum blockchain has much potential! There are also many wallets that can run apps straight from the wallet.

We aim to make a world where Ethereum is usable in real world situations.
