The acquisition aims to integrate the LibertyX mobile application so that customers of NCR Corporation such as banks, retailers, and restaurants will soon be able to use digital currency to pay and purchase or withdraw cryptocurrencies directly from its Bitcoin (cryptocurrency, based on the proof-of-work blockchain. Bitcoin was created in 2009 by a mysterious creator, Satoshi Nako…”>BTC) ATM network. This will accelerate the expansion of the scope and scale of NCR Corporation’s software.
Tim Vanderham, the Chief Technology Officer of NCR Corporation, responded to the acquisition by saying:
“Due to growing consumer demand, our customers require a complete digital currency solution, including the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrency, conduct cross-border remittance and accept digital currency payments across digital and physical channels.”
The official documents released did not disclose specific transaction details. The transaction is expected to be completed later this year.
NCR Corporation officially stated that the LibertyX digital currency solution is already very mature in ATMs, kiosks, and point-of-sale (POS) systems. Therefore, this acquisition can effectively integrate NCR’s digital wallet and mobile applications to provide an integrated digital currency solution on NCR’s physical and digital touchpoints.
