STK: A New Cryptocurrency for Instant Payments at Point of Sale

Imagine if we can shop at the store, have breakfast and drink coffee at the shop which has been using local / national currency to make payment from your personal account, along with the progress of existing blockchain technology then we can later use cryptocurrency. but there are some barriers such as :

  • Lack of merchant acceptance of cryptocurrency
  • Time consuming, and with sizeable fees to be able to exchange cryptocurrency into local currency

Cryptohouse introduce STK Global Payment’s to eliminate the barrier by creating a globally accessible alternative to traditional banking, allowing you to store your money safely, access it instantly and transact with it anywhere, in any currency including crypto by using the STK token, right from your smartphone, using the STACK app. Creating a digital wallet as a companion to a traditional card solution, the STACK app enables you to use any of your currencies at point of sale, anytime and anywhere in the world. STK will be a platform that will facilitate real-time cryptocurrency transactions at point of sale.

STK solution

  • STACK has partnered with an existing payment network that will allow the cryptocurrency wallet to be used at 39 million merchant locations
  • STACK, will create State Channels between the customer and STACK. This channel is an established way to provide real time transaction guarantees on the blockchain. Once this is done, customer transactions will be funded through the STK liquidity pool to make a direct purchase. does not record all payment transactions in blockchain made between buyers and retailers

In order for users of the STACK wallet to transact in real-time, the STK solution will be integrated into the STACK digital multi-currency wallet. This functionality can only be accessed with a STK token. The STK token will be used to pay for the operating cost of setting up the State Channel. Because STK tokens can change in value, the price per transaction is calculated similarly to how gas prices are on Ethereum.

State Channels are a technique for making off-chain transactions with the same security guarantees as an on-chain operation. State Channels allow us to conduct blockchain interactions as if they were being conducted on-chain, but require only that two or more users exchange information with each other. Participants in a State Channel may exchange a large number of transactions between one another instantaneously, requiring an on-chain operation only when the channel is closed. State Channels provide the speed required for STACK’s point-of-sale purchase mechanism: at the moment of purchase, the user sends STK tokens to STACK in exchange for STACK using their liquidity pool to make a fiat purchase through the global payment network. This is a cost effective approach to enabling transactions.
