Bitcoin cryptobanking service Coinkite has today revealed a brand-spanking-new payment point-of-sale terminal that accepts, well, Bitcoin. Not only that, the terminal also accepts Litecoin as well.
It would like a traditional credit card terminal would, allowing customers to purchase goods without the need for a mobile phone or computer. A QR code reader reads Bitcoin addresses, and voila. The built-in receipt printer then prints QR codes and relevant transaction information. In addition, the terminal accepts Coinkite debit cards.
The device has Wi-Fi and world GSM connectivity built in, so it’ll work in many different settings, and always keeps the latest exchange rate, so nobody’s getting a bad deal.
With that, merchants looking to buy the terminal can pre-order now. The incentive is that there’s a discounted price for now.
