A digital currency payment system learning exercise
Cryptocurrency is a hot topic right now, both in and outside the tech world. With interest and awareness growing, so is the attraction to crypto.
More and more people are downloading wallets, buying Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other digital currencies. Many see it as an investment, but is anyone actually buying anything with it? It’s currency after all, and you buy things with currency.
This article continues where we (Joe Guerra, Brandon Fancher, Garren DiPasquale, Sam Shaibani) left off with our crypto wallet MVP. We pivoted to a digital currency payment system, which we’re building and learning from now. It’s called Marché. That’s French for merchant. Fancy, oui?
Marché is a website to buy a single item: the genesis block coffee mug, a stylish novelty mug. Our objective is that users experience a usable, gratifying, digital currency payment checkout. We wanted to share our three part process explaining what we’ve done and what we’re doing next.
