Tip with PIVX in Downtown Barrie, Ontario, Canada
One of the challenges faced by street performers today is that many people don’t carry cash, which can present barriers to audiences who want to tip performers. To reduce these barriers, the Emerging Musicians Program has partnered with local technology innovators on a pilot project that allows people to tip musicians digitally using the cryptocurrency PIVX, a form of digital online money. Those wishing to tip using PIVX can scan a QR code displayed on signs carried by each musician using the Coinomi Wallet (See details below) or using the provided PIVX addresses, you can tip using any PIVX wallet. For more information on PIVX including how to download and use their virtual wallets, visit PIVX.org.
