PointCoin Chrome Extension : Remembar
To encourage the spread of Pointcoin by providing an easier way to spend and share Pointcoins.
What do we do?
Create fast access to your public address
input: Shorthand command, Public Address output: When shorthand command is typed, Remembar changes the command to your Public Address
Generate a unique QR code:
input-> Address, Message, Amount output->Output: unique QR code
- Sharing Address Online (Transactions, Forms, etc) -mistake free
- Transactions in-store -Seller generates the QR, buyer reads the code and only has to confirm payment to block chain -Mobile, Convenient
What’s stopping us from generating a wrong QR code? How come you don't send more than the desired amount? Or send the money to YOUR address?
We do not handle the transaction. No private keys, just a more convenient way to transact. Verify your public keys at any time.
How we got here and challenges:
We originally began working on a redit bot that would be able to automatically send PointCoin to users. Our goal here was to spread awareness of PointCoin to others. After attempting to create a reddit bot, we began to understand that this would be beyond the scope of this project. Our work on the reddit bot was fruitless because we did not have a full grasp of the reddit API and how to properly communicate with it or set up a server for this.
Instead, we decided to pivot our idea while keeping the same goal of spreading awareness of PointCoin. This led us to implement a Google Chrome extension.
Where we want to go next:
We would like to see this used to do more complex tasks related to PointCoin. New features would allow for users to more easily use and share PointCoin.
