Prompt.cash: A Hosted Noncustodial Payment Processor for Accepting P2P Electronic Cash

A number of innovative applications that leverage the crypto asset bitcoin cash (BCH) are on the horizon. In recent times, BCH fans have been introduced to a newly created payment processor called prompt.cash, a platform that allows people to accept BCH in a noncustodial fashion.

The main developer behind the project is a well known programmer who goes by the name Ekliptor.This dev who's been coding for well over a decade now has also been working with bitcoin cash payment systems for many years now.The engineer also developed cashtippr.com, a WordPress plugin that allows website owners to receive instant tips.

Speaking with Bitcoin.com’s newsdesk, Ekliptor told us why he started working on the prompt.cash noncustodial payment processor. “My experience from this has been that many people in the BCH community asked for a simpler solution and one that they can also put onto non-Wordpress websites within a minute by just copy and pasting,” Ekliptor said.

“Custodial payment processors (our competitors) are like a bank,” the developer added.A retailer owns the money it receives, and subsequently takes that money to his own bank account, or keep it for compliance or security reasons.Our noncustodial processor works like ‘Software-as-a-Service’ instead of being a bank.This means that all payments are directly credited to the merchant's bank account.We can not freeze or hold the merchant’s money as we are not part of the transaction,” he added.

Ekliptor continued:

And all this in a more convenient and even easier setup than custodial processors without the usual banking/KYC paperwork.

The Prompt.cash project also has a Flipstarter fundraiser going on right now, as the developers are raising 390 BCH.The Platform's description states that it's the 1st hosted noncustodial Software-as-a-Service payment processor.
