It’s a bit like buying a movie ticket in person, but instead of seeing the film in your theater, you’re getting the film on a digital screen, and then buying it on your mobile phone.
This new pizza vending machine is one of a handful of new QR code-based businesses popping up all over the country.
Vendors like Subway, Pizza Hut, and Panera Bread are all offering QR codes that allow customers to scan their QR codes to get pizza, coffee, or soda.
But some customers are more than willing to scan QR codes for free.
A group of Boston-area bitcoin entrepreneurs are working on a new way to pay for pizza.
They’re calling it QR Codes for Pizza.
“There are a few different kinds of people out there who are willing to pay with Bitcoin,” the Boston-based entrepreneurs said in a press release.
“We are the ones who are making this happen.”
For now, the QR Codes store is only in Boston, but the entrepreneurs say they’ll be opening stores in the next few months in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. I’ve seen QR codes at restaurants.
I’ve seen the QR codes on pizza, but I’ve never seen them being used in commerce.
The QR codes are just another way for merchants to help people.
The founders, Dan and John Ziracz, say that when they originally started using QR codes, they thought the QR code would be limited to one use.
“But as the technology developed and as we have seen the growth of the Bitcoin ecosystem, it became clear that it can be used for any purpose,” the Ziracs said.
“And that’s the reason we have this venture.
QR codes can be redeemed for a variety of services.”
The QR codes aren’t the only new technology to hit the Bitcoin market.
The digital currency has been slowly but steadily expanding, with Bitcoin trading at more than $600,000 a day.
The cryptocurrency has also been gaining traction in more mainstream industries, including food, clothing, and travel.
And the QR Code store is not the first venture to try QR codes.
The first QR code vending machine was a novelty in New York City back in 2005.
And that was about a decade ago.
The latest QR codes machine is being set up in Boston.
I know I’m not the only one who was excited to try out the QRcodes machine, and I hope the QR-code concept can help create more opportunities for people.
