Proposal description

Instantx Detecting Soda Machine.

Why a vending machine?
------------------------
Because it shows off InstantX in a real world use point of sale scenario. This can't be done with any Bitclone(coins that confirm and secure transactions at the same time).

Features
-----------------------
  • Ability to refund over/under payments automatically(no return address needed)
  • Detect InstantX payments
  • Ability to accept InstantX payments and reject standard payments.
  • BIP chain address control
  • Changing address and QR code for each transaction.
  • Activate relay or output for vending type device/gas pump/etc.

What does it do?
------------------------
Displays a QR code to send Dash.
If the amount is sent via Instantx and the amount is equal or above the amount needed, it sends the command to credit the machine for 1 beverage.
This is fast - Instant from a human's perspective.
If the amount is less/over, it instantly returns the change.
If a standard transaction is sent it rejects it and instantly sends it back.  (Maybe display "We don't wait for block confirmations and either should you, InstantX instead!")
Once a purchase is made, it displays a thank you and rotates the QR code.

This isn't just a marketing piece.  We are designing the software for point of sale.  It will enable any new device to easily adapt the github packages.  Moocowmoo has done an awesome job with coding all of this.  Point of sale is what sets Dash apart form the Bitclones....This is what we need!


Where will this machine debut?
------------------------
The North American Bitcoin Conference, Miami January 21-22 2016


Breakdown of Expenses
------------------------
$100 Raspberry PI, relays, display
$200 Vending machine
$300 Fixing up machine, paint, compressor, etc.
$300 Graphics
$200 Transportation of the machine
$500 Travel to Miami
$500 Software Design
$400 Graphics Design
------------

The idea is to hand out paper wallets with enough to get a free soda. Imagine the response when the BTC crowd suddenly "gets it". This thing will be the show stopper of the conference.

How much Dash and are you planning to hand out via paper wallets? And I don't see it's covered by the proposal?

Some of the wallet funds go back to the machine wallet to purchase the soda. So the expense for the soda and any extra put in the paper wallets are what we are covering. This is an exiting project and we hope it will turn some heads.

The free money paper wallet handouts will probably be out of our own pockets. The proposal only covers the cost of getting a working machine on the conference floor.

That's really an awesome marketing idea. I don't have an android phone. So i'll be forced have to abuse my laptop to enter the address and send the instantX transaction to get the soda out of the machine in Miami ;)

Added an image of the machine to your proposal description. Hope that's ok for you.

As for mining, no. Doing what we are doing is pretty taxing on the little PI. The PI is bare minimum for this project.

No problem. And if you show up, I will even get you a glass and some ice.
