The first trial of the Bluechain payment system and app kicks off this month in Tasmania. The trial will be conducted by Bluechain partner bank MyState. This is the first live trial involving real transactions on customer and merchant accounts.
The trial will initially be restricted to peer-to-peer transactions between a single MyState merchant and MyState staff acting as customers. Once the system has been validated in the limited trial, the scope will be gradually extended to multiple merchants, both in-store and online.
The main objectives of the trial are to evaluate the customer on-boarding process, verify the end-to-end transaction process, and to gain feedback on the app and its ease-of-use.
We’ll keep you posted during the trial as we step through each phase.
