We are happy to announce that EthCC has integrated KyberWidget into EthCC.io, allowing attendees the option to pay for their tickets in over 70 different ERC20 tokens. This integration demonstrates how various parts of the crypto stack can be combined to expand payment services to users and make their lives that bit easier.
What is EthCC?
EthCC (Ethereum Community Conference) is a not-for-profit conference bringing together more than 250 international speakers to discuss the latest developments around Ethereum. Taking take place in Paris, from March 5th — 7th 2019, prior to the ETHParis Hackathon, this year’s lineup of speakers includes Vlad Zamfir, Afri Schoedon, Taylor Monahon, Hudson Jameson, Aya Miyaguchi, our very own Yaron Velner, and many other opinion leaders from the world of blockchain.
Enabling Ticket Purchase With ERC20 Tokens
Prior to KyberWidget integration, ETHCC only accepted payment through credit card (resulting in a 3% transaction fee charged by Visa and Mastercard). By integrating with Kyber, attendees now have the option to pay in any of the 70+ ERC20 tokens available on the Kyber Network ranging from DAI to WBTC to TUSD. Payments are done on-chain within one transaction and at no point do the tokens leave the custody of either the sender or the receiver. This permissionless integration process means conferences like EthCC, EDCON, and ETHIS (Ethereum Industry Summit) or any other ticketing websites can easily add payment and swap functionality by deploying the code themselves without requiring any involvement from the Kyber team.
