[ANN]BlockPay - Point of Sale - Accept Any Crypto at Zero Cost

in #blockpay5 years ago (edited)

Welcome to BlockPay - The New Payments Era

BlockPay allows any merchant (retail, grocery chains, restaurants, vending machines, petrol stations, kiosks, etc.) to accept one or more digital currencies at zero cost!

BlockPay is an easy, fast & cost-efficient platform that supports all of the new digital currencies (like Bitcoin, Steem, Ethereum, Dash and Smartcoins) plus regular debit, credit, and gift cards.

BlockPay runs standalone (App) or integrated (e.g. Odoo) with existing systems, and is available worldwide in 44 languages.

With just a couple taps, the merchant provides the amount due to the customer. The customer uses their Wallet of choice to instantly pay via QR Code or NFC. BlockPay sends the eReceipt automatically to the customer's phone, along with any Loyalty Points earned.

From customer to customer, just 8 seconds on average. Faster and safer than cash, it's another path to profits!

4 Good reasons why you should use BlockPay in your business

Did you know that the BlockPay point of sale systems add an extra layer of anonymity to Bitcoin users? Bitcoin payments to a BlockPay system are mixed, cross Blockchain and super hard to track!

BlockPay is developed by BitShares Munich and we are preparing the legal groundwork for a future crowd sale. We are tired to see so many great communities struggle to bring their solution to the market, failing to negotiate with retail stores to somehow accept their Peercoin or Litecoin as payments. We want to help all of you and provide every community access to the free BlockPay platform so that you will be able to pay in your favorite store with any crypto currency.

a) For Merchants

BlockPay is for free for all merchants. No merchant fees or monthly subscription.

b) For Consumers

Consumers pay the small network fee of 0.5% every time they use a BlockPay terminal and cover the currency exchange fees.

Both fees (usually under 3 cents) is added to the requested payment.

Ok so why should the consumer cover all the fees?

> - Earn additional loyalty and reward points with your favorite brands
> - Earn extra cash back or get discounts for paying with digital currencies
> - Pay with your favorite digital currency with every supporting merchant
> - Pay pseudo-anonymously at every supporting merchant, Digital currencies are harder to track
> - Paying digital is fast, easy and safe. No counterfeit, chargebacks or identity theft
> - Using digital currencies adds extra security to your shopping experience

The revolution has started, all for one and one for all! Thanks for this great post. Namaste :)

I'd say the revolution is way beyond "started" and we better start preparing ourselves for the world in which it has been "won". Because it's almost here.

The magma is surfacing alright and keep on doing so. All for one and one for all! Namaste :)

Having said that, this is a great technology, and I look forward to using it.

Exactly and they are advertising something that will benefit you, me and the rest of the Steemit community :-D


I totally hear you and that's why I work convivially within the environment and follow the law of reciprocity as well. Namaste :)

Welcome to the 2016 Century where people get paid to advertise.

Revolution indeed :)

The interchange fees for accepting credit cards in my experience vary from 2-4% depending on the type of card and what payment processor you are using, so 0.5% seems reasonable.

we really want to bring down the fees as much as possible.

Agreed, Chris.


I would love this to become popular in South Africa. This just blew my mind!!!!!

We would love to see BlockPay all over Africa!!! It will be a simple Android App free for anybody! Imagine sending Bitcoin or Steem home and your family can spend it at a BlockPay in the village ;) See the circle of digital cash?

they do really need it in africa, especially in the very unbank areas.this will be very exicting if this comes thru in places like africa

Please reach out to us at [email protected] if your would like to promote BlockPay in the african community.

We are also developing a complementary product called Echo. It combines the best of WhatsApp and PayPal and supports all leading digital currencies. https://steemit.com/echo/@chris4210/annecho-echo-the-encrypted-chat-blockchain-wallet-2-0-for-everybody

BlockPay and Echo are brothers. You hold your money on Echo and spend it on BlockPay. So where do you earn your money? Steemit!! So let us build a circle of Earn-Hold-Spend-Earn-Hold-Spend.....

That is my vision.

I am so happy that we are FINALLY getting BlockPay out there.

Excellent post, loving the graphics used - really makes me want to step my steem post game up haha :D

I can't wait to get Gridcoin added to BlockPay in the future (when it's added to openledger & the MPA is live).

Keep up the great work! :)

I've emailed regarding applying for the Ambassador platform on behalf of the Gridcoin community. Looking forwards to BlockPay's full release :)

BlockPay... Great name!


I already doing my job. Next billboard will be Blockpay.


Greetings from ambassador :)

Are you going to set up a billboard for BlockPay too? We would love to see a picture :D

BlockPay is next. Maybe I will be better luck next time :). People here earning thousands for Photoshop mock-ups. I got $5 for the real deal. LOL

Seriously? Oh man if we start doing BlockPay billboards that would be awesome!

BlockPay - Accept any Digital Currency at Zero Cost

These POS terminals are much anticipated. The ultimate speed of BItShares network will make the system work even faster then regular credit card POS!

Finally its here, been looking for this kind of post because I wanted to know how to convert SBD to USD. Does it mean that we can directly transfer SBD to BlockPay?

We will release more information how you can use SBD at a BlockPay soon. This will help Steem to adopt even faster!

Awesome :)
Most of the POS for crypto charge a ton.

Great news! patiently waiting to become an ambassador!

Greetings from Colombia!

It's really amazing to see how far we can take these tools globally Quickly. Count me in when ready. Currently working some deals here with local merchand to get this POS. Also working on a coffee shop with Steem Quebec Community members will hangout and get to use BlockPay POS.

Wow cool!! Please, share your story with BlockPay on Steem. We are excited to create a global network where you can spend your digital money easier than cash!

Good to know, glad few new options.

This is great to see. The mere presence of these PoS systems like this, regardless if the fees are lower, will drive new users to cryptocurrency. I hope Blockpay can become successful with their business model, because it could very well be the start of cryptocurrency mass adoption :)

Nice initiative, lets build the entire ecosystem. :)

this will be creating a huge competition for the original traditional payment systems lika paypal. great development

Yes, and BlockPay works everywhere where you have internet access. So even in Africa or in the jungle of central America. What would happen if we add Steem Dollar to BlockPay?

Nice service, bringing cryptos to real world

paypal better starting running or blockpay gonna whip them outta shape :) Will you post it when it's support steem? says coming soon? ETA?

We will keep you all up to date about our latest development. We even started a VBlog here on Steem!

Wow! What do i need to pay with bitcoin? Like btc address or?

To pay with your Bitcoins at a BlockPay supporting merchant, you just need to have the Mycelium mobile wallet. The Smartcoins Wallet supports multiple cryptocurrencies too, which might be a better choice in the long run IMO:

Hello this looks exciting!

Great post. looks like a great way to manage funds

Hello this looks exciting! There is some problem with the youtube videos you tried to embed. Just an FYI!

fixed that. Thank you for your help

You're welcome. Best of luck with Blockpay!

Can you discuss the main differences between this initiative and Plutus (plutus.it)? I deeply analyzed plutus and came to the conclusion that, on a risk-return approach, it was not worth the investment, especially for the fact that plutus seems to propose a new coin that has its economic value linked to rebates. How does blockpay differentiate from plutus, in order to be better positioned in this competitive market?


NFC is cool, but I think it limits your purchases to under 50 bucks or something like that. BlockPay "S" and BlockPay Integrated support every major cryptocurrency (BTC, Steem, Dash, bitUSD, bitEUR, bitCNY, Doge, LTC, etc) and is not limited by transaction sizes.. buying a cart full of groceries, a new car, tank full of gas, or dinner for two for example.

Block times are 3 seconds or less and the Graphene blockchain itself has already proven over 100,000 transactions per second which is more than visa and mc combined.

I did a quick vid of it: https://steemit.com/crypto-news/@kencode/blockpay-demo-with-smartcoins-wallet

Merchants can issue Loyalty Points and eReceipts with every transaction if they like, and cash out to their fiat currency of choice.

Now that we are integrating BlockPay via OEM and in retail/grocery/restaurant/vending/petrol chains, this enables any merchant (NFC or QR codes) to accept one or more cryptocurrencies at zero cost. Our mobile apps and ERP modules are all in 44 languages too, so it has made rollouts worldwide very simple.

We also do not require the customer/user to have a special cryptocurrency wallet installed since BlockPay supports them all. Just use Mycelium, or Jaxx, or Dash Wallet or whatever wallet you like best at any BlockPay merchant.

BlockPay also runs on top of the Bitshares Dex, so you never have to worry about an exchange getting hacked or someone stealing your keys. Bitshares users get to keep their keys. For a merchant to come online with BlockPay, all they have to do is import the free module for their point of sale system.


I wish you would support Monero instead of doggiecoin. Check out my post about a machine gun shootout I went to.


We can add Monero too. Are you familiar with the BitShares UIA and MPA? You could create your own currency on BitShares.

The coins that BlockPay make available to the merchant are sorted by market cap. So, once the market cap is higher, then the merchant is more likely to enable that coin as a choice for their customers. The homescreen of BlockPay "S", and BlockPay Integrated, only allow for 7 total coins to be displayed at once though, along with Smartcoins of course.

Do you have affiliate tracking system that will be very useful and what about ipn?

Affiliates.. Check out the Ambassadors Program here:

As for instant payments, BlockPay uses the fastest, most scalable blockchain on the planet: Graphene

I hope that helps a bit, if not, please let me know, am glad to assist here wherever I can :)

When do you expect to launch the crowd funding and will there be ownership?

We will post a few more updates about the Pre-ICO over the next days.

Looking so promising.
