Ingenico / Salamantex / EuroShop 2020: First POS terminal with integrated acceptance of cryptocurrencies introduced
Ingenico, one of the world's leading providers of secure and seamless payment solutions, and Salamantex, an Austrian Fintech company specializing in the development of software solutions for payment with digital currencies, will present the first POS terminal that has integrated the option of payment with digital currencies by default at the EuroShop 2020 - the world's largest trade fair for retail investment needs. The software from Salamantex enables merchants to accept cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum or Dash at the POS, but to receive the amount in Euros as usual.
Through its cooperation with Salamantex, Ingenico makes payment with cryptocurrencies available to the broad market for the first time. The OAI interface is already included as standard in Ingenico's TETRA model terminals. If desired, the option can remotely be installed and activated for products of type /5000.
