BlackCoin Added to Coinkite Point of Sale Systems

Coinkite's investment of resources into supporting the infrastructure of BlackCoin is an important indicator of the health of the coin.

BlackCoin, a top 10 digital currency by market cap that secures its network entirely through proof of stake, announced today it has been accepted onto Coinkite exchange and payment hardware terminals. The Coinkite terminal looks like the familiar handset device used so often in point of sale transactions. Coinkite’s system uses these ordinary merchant terminals to accept Coinkite debit cards loaded with Bitcoin, Litecoin, and now, BlackCoin.

BlackCoin’s adoption by Coinkite is a major differentiator among digital currencies,” said Adam Kryskow, U.S. Representative for the BlackCoin Foundation. “Coinkite’s investment of resources into supporting the infrastructure of BlackCoin is an important indicator of the health of the coin. Coinkite is one of the most important companies in the digital currency space right now, and we are delighted to count them as a partner.”

BlackCoin’s robust growth is being noticed by major players in finance. A report just released by Citi GPS (a corporate publication owned by Citi), states that Bitcoin is far ahead of other digital currencies in market cap, “but transactions in Litecoin, Dogecoin, and Blackcoin are significant as well.”

Michael Morris, BlackCoin Foundation Executive & Business Development Director said: “Using BlackCoin on Coinkite offers merchants and consumers an advantage over using Bitcoin. While confirmation times for Bitcoin can take up to 10 minutes, BlackCoin’s proof of stake protocol reduces confirmation times to as little as 30 seconds. Merchants who skip confirmations with Bitcoin for small transactions can gain peace of mind by executing confirmations for BlackCoin.”
