MintChip Challenge

Last week the Royal Canadian Mint launched a competition to generate some buzz, and proof of concept ideas for their new form of currency called MintChip:

 

I’ve entered myself into the competition which is limited to 500 participants to develop an App that will make make use of this next generation of currency. It should be interesting to see how it works and hopefully in 4 months time, I’ll have a nice polished app that ready to win one of the prizes.

Top prize is a 10oz wafer of gold worth $17,000.
