Point-of-Sale Platform Anypay Adds Full Bitcoin Cash Support
Bitcoin Cash (BCH) proponents were pleased to hear this week that the point-of-sale payment processing application Anypay has fully integrated BCH. With the Anypay platform, anyone can accept BCH at their store using a tablet, mobile device or desktop in a noncustodial fashion.
Crypto Payment Processor Anypay Completes Bitcoin Cash Integration
Derrick Freeman, the founder of point-of-sale (PoS) cryptocurrency platform Anypay Global, explained to BCH supporters the payment application has integrated bitcoin cash support. Anypay initially announced support for BCH back in November 2017 but as some users tested the platform it had a few quirks, so support was removed off and on for a year.
Now since Jan. 31, the cryptocurrency has been added to Anypay’s list of fully supported coins which also includes LTC, DASH, BTC, DOGE, ZEC, XRP, and ZEN. Freeman explained in a recent blog post that he knew at some point Anypay would give BCH the attention that it deserves. The entrepreneur and activist also stated he admired that BCH is about “spendability, low fees” and that it’s also “easy to send, and easy to accept.”
“We knew we would come back to it, someday, to treat it right — to give it the beautiful, easy to use, and ideologically pure point of sale app it deserves,” Freeman detailed.
The Anypay founder further stated:
Free, No IDs, and No Complicated Setup
Last November, news.Bitcoin.com reviewed Anypay Global’s application and was the first to notice the platform had fused Cointext into the system. The Cointext integration means people who pay an Anypay invoice with BCH can simply text the payment by using SMS. The user could pay a tab without an internet connection or use a Nokia style feature phone without web services. In a matter of minutes, with a bitcoin cash address, anyone can accept the currency in a noncustodial manner as all the funds are held by the merchant. Anypay has zero access to the private keys as the PoS system simply uses an anchored public address.
“You can approach any business, and in minutes have them accepting multiple cryptocurrencies on their store iPad, Android tablet, mobile, or desktop — totally free, without IDs, and without any complicated setup,” Freeman detailed during the announcement.
On social media and BCH related forums, supporters were thrilled to hear the news about the payment processor’s full support. Many BCH proponents enjoyed Freeman’s honesty and opinion on how the cryptocurrency originally forked off. “[Bitcoin Cash] shed its fat, ugly layer of loser nobodies who were frantically buying up as many digital tokens as they could, getting high off the rush from their imaginations of lambos and yachts and get-rich-quick easy money,” the activist remarked.
