On May 15th, Pundi X announced that its blockchain-powered point-of-sale (POS) solution XPOS has received FCC, CE, KC, and UAE TRA certifications.
Pundi X claims that the XPOS is the first wireless point-of-sale solution that provides secure digital transactions for merchants and consumers on the blockchain in physical stores. These transactions include buying goods and services as well as topping up users’ cryptocurrencies. The XPOS is cryptocurrency neutral, so that popular tokens such as BTC, ETH, BNB, and NPCS are accepted.

“Our XPOS devices now bear FCC, CE, KC and TRA markings, which means that they have passed levels of conformity prescribed by authorities in the US, EU, South Korea and the UAE respectively. These markings indicate that from a safety and environmental protection perspective the XPOS can confidently be used by people and their communities,”
Zac Cheah also claims that this certification will open the gates for a broader XPOS rollout, not only in the United States and Europe but also globally where the FCC and CE markings are also easily recognized and trusted. Additionally, this development supports the widely shared goal of mass adoption of cryptocurrencies and blockchain-based payments as a way-of-life for the digital generation.
“Today, a blockchain-powered device has officially and legitimately become part of this universe of devices that are improving the quality of life for people everywhere,” added Cheah.
The platform also stated that the passivity testing for electronic devices includes emissions and immunity tests assuring a product neither transmit harmful electromagnetic interference nor is vulnerable to electromagnetic interference (EMI) from its operating environments, such as local radio stations or nearby products.
