PoS Platform Anypay Completes Bitcoin Cash Integration


Bitcoin Cash (BCH) enthusiasts were thrilled to hear that the point-of-sale (PoS) payment processing app Anypay has now completely integrated BCH. The Anypay platform enables anyone to accept BCH at their shop using a desktop, mobile device, or tablet in a noncustodial way. 

Anypay Global founder Derrick Freeman told the BCH supporters that the payment app has integrated BCH support. Anypay initially announced the BCH support in November 2017. However, as some individuals trialed the platform, it had some quirks. The support was removed off and on for one year.

Since January 31, the crypto has been included in Anypay’s list of fully supported coins along with BTC, DASH, LTC, XRP, ZEN, ZEC, and DOGE. In a recent blog post, Freeman said he knew that at some point Anypay would give the attention BCH deserves. He added that he admired how the coin is about “spendability, low fees” and that it is “easy to send, and easy to accept” as well.

“We knew we would come back to it, someday, to treat it right—to give it the beautiful, easy to use, and ideologically pure point of sale app it deserves,” Freeman noted, further stating:

“And finally, it is done and BCH is now fully supported on Anypay—Go ahead and try it. You will be amazed at how fast your payment arrives in your wallet. Your eyes will well up at the beauty and simplicity of the experience—You will see God.”

In November, Anypay Global’s application has been reviewed and was found that it had fused Cointext into the system. The Cointext integration means individuals paying an Anypay invoice using BCH can do so by simply texting the payment via SMS. Users could pay a tab using a Nokia style feature phone or without an internet connection. In a few minutes, with a BCH address, anyone can accept the currency in a noncustodial fashion since the merchant holds all the funds. Anypay has no private keys access because the PoS system only utilizes an anchored public address.

According to Freeman, “you can approach any business, and in minutes have them accepting multiple cryptocurrencies on their store iPad, Android tablet, mobile, or desktop — totally free, without IDs, and without any complicated setup.”

Supporters on BCH related forums and social media were pleased to hear the announcement on the payment processor’s full support. Several BCH proponents appreciated Freeman’s honesty and opinion about how the coin originally forked off. The activist remarked:

“[Bitcoin Cash] shed its fat, ugly layer of loser nobodies who were frantically buying up as many digital tokens as they could, getting high off the rush from their imaginations of lambos and yachts and get-rich-quick easy money.”
