Having successfully met the phase-1 objectives (onboarding customers and testing the payment server), next week, the MyState trial will move into phase 2. In phase 2, two additional functions will be made available from the app:
- attach a bank account to an eCard, and
- request a payment from another, nearby user.
Also, due to the reliability of the app and payment server demonstrated in phase 1, all restrictions on when the app can be used at Little Shoes Espresso have now been lifted.
The objectives of the second phase are to test the reliability and speed of direct bank account transactions, gain further feedback from both merchants and customers on ease-of-use, and conduct broader error-handling tests on the Bluechain payment server and app.
