8 years after Laszlo Hanyecz paid 10,000 Bitcoins for 2 PapaJohn’s pizzas, 1,000 participants of the DAHO.AM Pure Tech Conference each paid 300 CrowdstartCoins XSC for conference T-shirts, goodie bags or frozen yogurt. 30 degrees Celsius and more made especially the frozen yohurt the most sought after food at the conference.
Datarella supported the organizational DAHO.AM team with looking for speakers, defining workshops and also with the more nitty gritty detail of a conference. Additionally, we launched our latest blockchain product at the conference, a cryptocurrency wallet, the XSC Wallet.
When opening the XSC Wallet, each DAHO.AM visitor got 1,000 XSC that enabled her to buy a t-shirt, a goodie bag and a frozen yogurt. Due to the tough conference schedule and summery temperature, many visitors asked other visitors who weren’t interested in goodie bags, to send them their XSC enabling them to buy another froyo. Sending and receiving crypto with tye XSC Wallet proved to be so easy that even the least technically educated (their words) experienced no problem at all managing their cryptocurrency.
Some visitors were hesitant to spend their XSC in the first instance, since they belong to the #HODL group – users who don’t spend their frypto but “Hold On for Dear Life”. But, after the Crowdstart team assured them that they woult get the same amount of XSC tokens they’d spend later this week in real ERC20 XSC tokens that are tradeable on the Ethereum mainnet, they went on a shopping tour.
The fascinating result of the XSC Wallet launch was the fact that all users were completely surprised how easy it is to pay for goods and food with crypto in real life. The payment process is easy to understand, fast, and makes so much fun that many visitors returned several times to the Crowdstart stand only to use the XSC Wallet and pay for stuff, again. For the Datarella team, this wasn’t really a surprise, but a very nice confirmation of our strong belief that crypto will play a major role in global payments soon.
The DAHO.AM Pure Tech Conference (on July 24th) will use our new XSC-Wallet as the official payment method during the conference! The wallet will be used for buying food, drinks, and merchandise.
As the largest pure tech conference for developers, startups, and corporates the DAHO.AM (tickets here!) is predestined to use a blockchain-based payment system at the event. The XSC-Wallet will be available as an app for your smartphone (iOS or Android) and act as a replacement for old-school paper vouchers. You’ll basically be able to pay for everything using the app. For this year’s conference, we’re also going to issue everyone a physical ticket for getting lunch super fast and as an offline backup in case your phone is out of juice.
The app contains special DAHO.AM XSC which are super easy to use. You can use the DAHO.AM wallet at the venues of the DAHO.AM conference to pay for food and snacks. We’ll issue special DAHO.AM XSC as a credit when you download the app so you won’t have to worry about exchanges or buying cryptocurrency in advance. After DAHO.AM your XSC will be transformed into tradable XSC-tokens on the ethereum network.
We are currently in the final testing period for the app and a private Beta on TestFlight in the App Store is ongoing.
Stay tuned for updates!
We are very pleased to announce that Crowdstart Capital will be releasing a CrowdstartCoin XSC powered payment app and DApp browser at the DAHO.AM tech conference.
We want Crowdstart Coin XSC to be THE token for blockchain developers. It goes without saying that you have to store your XSC somewhere and you want to be able to DO something with that XSC right? Our upcoming app hits both of these targets.
Since we’re co-organizing the DAHO.AM deep tech conference we thought it would be really cool if we could digitalize the payment process for all the concessions this year. Usually, you go to a conference and along with your tickets you get a few paper vouchers to trade for food and drinks free of charge. That works but it’s not much fun. DAHO.AM is the home of the future so we’re going to tokenize this old-school process!
This year instead of getting paper vouchers we’ll issue XSC to the developers and techies attending the conference. After downloading the iOS or Android app from the respective app store, DAHO.AM attendees will be able to enter their ticket number and automatically get XSC credited to their account.
After that, you just walk over to buy Bratwürstl, scan a QR code, approve the transaction with your fingerprint and chow down! For the conference, we’ll be deploying a private permissioned network to handle all the conference payments without the need to pay for gas costs. Afterward whatever XSC you haven’t spent will be credited to your mainnet account.
The CSC app will also include a built-in DApp browser! This will enable DAHO.AM attendees to use our new CROWDVOTE DApp to vote for the most innovative projects at the conference on the ethereum blockchain using the very same app. Our smart contract will tally the votes and automatically award XSC to the winners at the end of the conference.
Part of why we’re so excited about the DAHO.AM conference is that it presents an opportunity to get really hands-on with blockchain technology and really see what can be accomplished in the real world. We’re looking forward to seeing you there. Click here to reserve your tickets now!
