took the stage to demo how its Copsonic
can work with P2P Transactions:
“How they describe their product/innovation: CopSonic is the first universal contactless mobile payment system powered by our unique technology. It is based on sonic communication transiting through the devices’ speakers and microphones. Therefore, our technology is compatible with 100% of existing phones and smartphones, unlike NFC technologies. Several patents have been filed with regard to the security of the transaction.
Our technology allows peer-to-peer transactions between feature phones and smartphones but also enables online passwordless authentication turning the devices into security dongles.
We developed an SDK that allows third-party companies to integrate the modules and, therefore, create a business model based on transaction fees or licenses.”
