Money Button can be used to generate buttons for a variable tip or a fixed price for selling online. When facilitating payments through cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin BCH, the app enables merchants and developers to access fast, reliable transactions in the currency of their choice.
Money Button is the brainchild of Yours.org founder Ryan X. Charles, and can already be seen in practice at the site, allowing readers to tip worthy content in BCH.
The app is essentially a “configurable client-side BCH wallet,” according to the developer, with only a BCH wallet address required to receive funds sent through the payment button.
Describing Money Button back when the project was first announced, the developers said it would allow mainstream audiences to interact with the Bitcoin blockchain. It’s a full non-custodial client-side Bitcoin BCH wallet that runs on the user’s device, which means Money Button doesn’t have access to user funds.
“[The Money Button] can be used in any kind of app, such as social networks or games, and it can be used for payments of any size, from one cent to millions of dollars,” according to the team. “The Money Button is effectively an accessibility layer for the blockchain. We’re making [it] possible for a mainstream audience to access the revolutionary properties of the blockchain.”
Charles said the development has focused on making the app as easy to use as possible, and “as easy as clicking the Facebook Like button.”
The app is the latest innovation to be developed for the BCH blockchain, following a number of similar developments and launches in recent months.
Preferred for its superior technology, leading to faster, cheaper and more reliable transactions, the ever expanding BCH ecosystem is now more attractive than ever for developers, merchants and consumers.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BSV is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
