Detailed description

As high-volume transaction experts, we are well-aware of the fact that credit cards, the foundation of online billing and payments, were never fully adapted to the world of digital trade. We’ve experienced firsthand the issues merchants face daily thanks to an outdated system of transaction processing. It didn’t take much for us to see the potential of blockchain to solve these problems. 

Main mission is to modernize payment processing systems and lay the foundations for a thriving cryptocurrency economy built on the PumaPay Pull Payment Protocol. The Protocol is designed to:

  • Standardize and enable comprehensive payment methods over the blockchain
  • Decentralize the billing layer and save substantial intermediary costs for merchants
  • Increase the use of cryptocurrency both online and offline and facilitate it as a standard means of payment
  • Enable powerful launch partners to disrupt their industries by creating a decentralized version of their platforms

Problem

The introduction of Bitcoin as an electronic cash system in 2009 was the first step towards a modern online payment solution. Bitcoin was originally designed to adress trust issues and to optimize security: but at the expense of scalability, speed and cost. 

As a result, Bitcoin in its current construct is unable to offer flexible processing solutions for most of the current online billing methodologies. None of the cryptocurrencies that were introduced over the past few years has provided a comprehensive payment solution that allows crypto holders to utilize their cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. 

Cryptocurrencies are far too underdeveloped to complete at scale with payment cards, they suffer from poor acceptance by ,erchants mostly due to their complexity of usage and they do not support transactions that are more sophisticated than a simple 'push' transaction.

There is a real need for a payment infrastructure that is built to serve merchants, not exploit them. A system that is built from the ground up for the digital era and that is as scalable, flexible and accessible as payment cards, abscent their inherent flaws and disadvantages. Blockchain technology offers a great opportunity to create such a system for the benefit of merchants and consumers alike.
