First NEM-based point-of-sale terminal reveals
Pundi X will ship 20,000 NEM-based XPOS devices
We are excited to unveil a new branch of XPOS smart point-of-sale terminal running solely on the NEM blockchain, called NEM XPOS. The new NEM XPOS device will be connected to the NEM blockchain via XPlugins, the Pundi X Platform API that allows blockchain developers to connect to digital wallets and create smart contract requests.
NEM XPOS device will deliver faster transactions at the physical retail stores. Consumers will be able to conduct multiple NEM-based cryptocurrency transactions via XPOS point-of-sale terminals. This device will assist both the physical retailers and the consumers to do cryptocurrency to fiat or fiat to cryptocurrency transactions faster and easier.
Tokens confirmed to be listed on this brand new NEM XPOS device are XEM, PXSXEM and XAR. There will be more XEM Mosaic tokens to be listed later.
“NEM and Pundi X are working together to tackle one of the biggest challenges facing all blockchain developers and their users — making it accessible for mainstream consumers to use in their daily lives,” commented Lon Wong, former president of NEM.io Foundation. “For the first time, NEM-based tokens will come to the store front for mainstream adoption.”
“When consumers conduct blockchain-based transactions, speed, by all means, is critical for better user experience, said Zac Cheah, CEO of Pundi X. “That’s why we have started integrating NEM private chain in our pilot XPOS devices in the first place. As NEM platform is growing, it is a natural step for us to launch a NEM XPOS terminal by integrating NEM for both public and private chain to meet the market demand.”
Pundi X will produce 20,000 units of NEM POS devices and deliver to NEM Foundation and partners.
