Archived Mobile Payments + PIVX = 6000 fiat to PIV locations, soon PIV to fiat –> *BOOM*


Sep '18

Hey All,
Super excited to present something that’s been ongoing in the “background” for the past several weeks/months. PIVX is in the front of the line to be adopted into the mobile payments platform and app NUMO (https://www.getnumo.com/consumer 21).
With the platform already built, deployed, and running (apps already on iOS and Android), as well as some pretty high-level partnerships being teed up (from citywide implementation as the payment app for concerts, parking meters, etc) to Numo having signed a letter of intent with a national cannabis association in Canada to conduct a trial of the Numo platform in advance of cannabis legalization (Oct 2018), this is a big win for PIVX. For many reasons, NUMO is interested in PIVX (specifically the use of zPIV in anonymous transactions) and Numo as a point of sale system which is highly attractive to cannabis users and merchants as both groups seek to keep cannabis purchases and transaction histories private. More on that to come (see the alliance proposals/pre-proposal) - but the intent would be to have PIVX (zPIV) be the means/mechanism of private transaction or confidential transaction when using the NUMO wallet. Put another way, PIVX would be the default/standard of private transactions within the NUMO ecosystem, which is already large, and expanding.
You can read a LOT more about their intents, the plan, the ask, team, etc at the link below (their alliance proposal…which, they will be on the next alliance call on September 30th, 2018…4pm EST).
I’ve personally been speaking with the core of NUMO for over a month now, and recently met them face to face in Canada (They’re HQ in Toronto). Several other PIVX folks have been working with them as well, as conversations have expanded to deployment to multiple regions in the surrounding Toronto Area. As you can quickly tell, they know their proverbial stuff, and as they say…they are “reformed bankers” having experience from e-trade, RBC, and other Fortune 100 financial institutions.

Here’s to more 3rd party platforms seeing the immense value of PIVX and the PIVX network!
