Existence of Other Smart Vending Machines in the Market
Even though these news smart vending machines will be running on the latest technology, they are definitely not the first in the market. In 2015, a vending machine was installed in Seattle to allow people to use Bitcoin to purchase marijuana. This year, Civic, a startup company, introduced a prototype of a vending machine that has the capacity to verify if a customers’ has attained the age of 21 years before dispensing beer. This beer vending machine is designed to accept payments in Bitcoin.
Cryptocurrency experts are of the idea that even though Bitcoin surpass other cryptocurrencies in terms of trade volumes and brand awareness, it is not the best cryptocurrency for doing micro transactions especially on vending machines. This is due to the long wait times, high fees, and high-energy consumption required to process just one transaction.
Lighting Network scaling solution is yet to make it possible for projects similar to GoByte and iVendPay to use Bitcoin for small transactions.
iVendPay and GoByte project to distribute vending machines throughout Israel and Malaysia will give millions of people who prefer cryptocurrencies to use it to access goods and services. Even a small thing such as allowing a customers’ to use his or her phone to buy a cup of coffee from a smart vending machine using their preferred crypto currency is a major positive step in the right direction.
