How would you describe your project?

I want to work on creating a BLE and NFC payments gateway that is compatible with cards similar to the NTAG215 and other systems in order to make TNB more adaptable for everyday usage. I also want it to be privacy focused, meaning you can't geolocate the cards and they are only readable within certain range.

What problem does it solve?

I feel it makes TNB more adaptable as a point of sale system for vendors wanting to accept it in the future.

Who is the target market?

Potential vendors that want to adapt TNB or a similar cryptocurrency gateway in their community.

What do you think is the opportunity of this project?

Lots of people are doing similar things, but they are too creepy i.e. centralized and not privacy focused or overly complicated. I want to make a gateway that is simple, sell the cards or open source it, and people can flash it and start using it with a compatible reader.

How does it integrate with thenewboston digital currency work?

Easy, TNB is insanely fast and once it has a value tied to it, if you want to use TNB to buy a coffee in a shop that accepts it, now you can in few seconds.

Are there any competitors?

Maybe you can consider the Monaco cryptocurrency or crypto.com a competitor, but I would not. Maybe something like CoolWallet?

What are your goals and objectives?

Built it out, do a quick demo, and then launch it.

How will you evaluate project success?

It works (Obviously :), is used ethically, and gets some beta users.
In regards to how many coins I would be requesting for something like this, probably around 50k. I can provide certain milestones, but do hope for insights on this ideation first.

By posting this issue, I (author of this issue) allow my project idea to be used by other people for any commercial as well as non-commercial purposes and I'll not be liable for misuse of my idea.
