Singapore-based Pundi X announced on Wednesday that its blockchain-powered point-of-sale (POS) solution XPOS has received FCC, CE, KC and UAE TRA certifications. Pundi X claims that the XPOS is the first wireless point-of-sale solution that enables merchants and consumers to do secure digital transactions on the blockchain in physical stores. The transactions include purchases of goods and services as well as topping up users’ cryptocurrencies. The XPOS is cryptocurrency neutral, so that popular tokens such as BTC, ETH, BNB, and NPXS are accepted.
While sharing details about the certifications, Zac Cheah, Co-Founder and CEO of Pundi X, stated:
“Our XPOS devices now bear FCC, CE, KC and TRA markings, which means that they have passed levels of conformity prescribed by authorities in the USA, EU, South Korea and the UAE respectively. These markings indicate that from a safety and environmental protection perspective the XPOS can confidently be used by people and their communities.”
Cheah also reported:
“The certifications open the gates for a broader XPOS rollout, not only in the United States and Europe, but also globally where the FCC and CE markings are also easily recognized and trusted. This development supports the widely shared goal of mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based payments as a way-of-life for the digital generation.”
Pundi X added that the compliance testing for electronic devices includes emissions and immunity tests ensuring a product neither emits harmful electromagnetic interference nor is vulnerable to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from its operating environment, such as local radio stations or nearby products.
