First POS to accept Cryptocurrency – Nano to be exclusively integrated into Kappture electronic Point-of-Sale devices.

June 19th, 2019 – Kappture, a leading Electronic Point-of-Sale (EPoS) company, has announced its intention to exclusively integrate Nano into its cutting-edge merchant devices. The integration will mark the forward-thinking company’s first venture into offering users the opportunity to pay with cryptocurrency.

“We anticipate Nano will be well received by Kappture’s established customer base, particularly among academic institutions,” said George Coxon, Nano Foundation Chief Operating Officer, “and this exciting opportunity reflects our determination in working to foster the right relationships.”

With highly regarded institutions such as Saïd Business School and the University of West London among the users of the cutting-edge EPoS system, this integration will represent a significant step forward in the discovery of natural use cases of secure and decentralized cryptocurrency – with the ultrafast and fee-less transactions of Nano leading the way.

“Many of our higher education customers are opening blockchain postgrads this academic year. With recent advances in digital currency technology, specifically fee-less ultrafast transactions, there is a unique opportunity for these forward-looking institutions to consider digital currency for the first time,” said Neil Haran, Kappture’s Chief Technical Officer “having run centralized ledgers since 2012, we’re well placed to review the digital currency industry and, after a careful code review process, selected Nano as the project with the features required by the hospitality industry.”
