Mensa Payments with Bitcoins at Binzmühle in a Testing Phase.

This week from February 10 to 14, 2014 you will have the chance to pay your consumptions at the Mensa Binzmühle in Oerlikon with Bitcoins.

A Master Project developed a Mobile Bitcoin Payment Solution (MBPS), which can run transactions in seconds via NFC (Near Field Communications) communications.

You just need a Smartphone, equipped with Android 4.4 and an NFC sensor. And you can buy Bitcoins at our booth in the hall of the BIN building any time between 11 and 13 hours, in case you don't own any yet.
