TRON SR Sesameseed Talks about SEEDgerminator Project Poppy
In a recent Medium blog, TRON SR Sesameseed talked about Poppy, which is a new project up for funding on the SEEDgerminator platform.
Poppy is a Point of Sale (POS) system which has an integrated TRON payment processing system. It leverages a robust POS system with the functionalities provided by Clover POS to fully integrate retail sales to the blockchain functionality of the network.
As per the blog:
“Poppy will provide its customers an easy to implement Tron payment integration on the Clover POS platform. Enabling customers to purchase items in TRX or basic Tron tokens at the retail will provide the customer a more robust experience will significantly reducing the transaction fee’s of traditional credit based payment methods. Seamless in-store and online ordering for clients, and a minimal barrier to entry for vendors will immediately open tron to hundreds of thousands of retailers.”
It later speaks about the customer-fulfillment as well TronCard:
Leveraging the Tron blockchain, customers will enjoy the same retail experience they are used to, with the added benefit of accepting TRX and Tron Tokens. The point of sale will allow retail purchases utilizing Tron across a variety of methods including a Tron wallet, Tron style Card “TronCard” or the Seedit platform and application. Seedit opens Poppy to social media by allowing twitter, telegram, Reddit and other platforms to act as viable payment methods.
With this platform, it seeks to bridge the existing gap between social media, customer service, and the vendors for creating a connected retail experience.
The blog then moves on to discussing the community and market impact of the project:
“By allowing seamless integration with the Tron blockchain, Poppy will enable customers to interact with retail in ways that do not currently exist in POS platforms today.
In addition to traditional payment methods (Visa/MasterCard/Cash), retail customers will be able to purchase goods and services by utilizing the blockchain in several ways including Social Media and the Seedit platform, Tron wallet transfers and the Poppy “TronCard”.”
Further explaining it, the blog says:
“Utilizing Poppy, a customer vendor relationship can bridge the point of sale and social media divide. Vendors may interface with their community by leveraging Seedit to provide discounts; complimentary items, “gift cards” and rewards on the blockchain, always visible to the POS.
The open nature of the distributed ledger facilitates an environment in which Vendor and Customer anonymity is possible, while still allowing vendors to reward loyal customers.”
For example, if a retailer is searching for an easy way for market tracking of redemption with the help of promotional activities it is conducting across various social media channels, it can do so by issuing a token which is redeemable in stores using the platform.
The project aims to build a truly interactive ecosystem for the TRON community wherein TRX and other tokens based on the network can be used like no other cryptocurrency can be used as of now. Right now, the network has a potential to offer much more robust use cases in retail than the other blockchains since it leverages social media channels as well as anonymous data mining on an inexpensive yet fast network.
It isn’t only TRX and other TRON-based tokens which can be used on the platform. The platform also supports Visa, MasterCard, and Cash support for offering diverse functionality as a payment and redemption platform. For purchasing goods and services using the platform, customers can use TRX from their wallet, TronCard and even using the Seedit application making the platform even more promising.
