What is AerPass?
AerPass is the new way to pay. Simple. Secure. Mobile. It’s easy to use because its Artificially Intelligent smart wallet thinks for you. It cannot be lost or stolen, because it exists on the blockchain. It makes mobile payments a snap because anyone can easily sign up, install the app, and start making and receiving payments in minutes. And best of all… AerPass payments will cost merchants up to 90% LESS than conventional card-based payments like Visa & MasterCard.
What We Do
The AerPass smart wallet (mobile app) is super easy to use and extremely secure, for the fastest and safest customer transaction experience possible.
The AerPass exchange is where money is exchanged with the AER cryptocurrency to deliver instant low cost transactions between buyers and sellers all over the world without the need for expensive, time-consuming middlemen.
Multi-Party Authentication (IP)
The AerPass Multi-Party Authentication protocol insures that no personal identity information is ever exposed to the public networks.
With our convenient and mobile friendly payment systems, identity protection, and ability to democratize the industry, there are numerous benefits to using AerPass.
Convenient & Mobile-Friendly
All payments can be made securely and conveniently through the use of mobile phones. The application can be used both online and in the real-world wherever credit and debit cards are accepted.
Very Low Cost
Payment transaction costs with AERPASS are up to 90% less than with conventional card based transactions. Merchants also receive their money within seconds, which only adds to the savings when considering the time value of money.
One of the core strengths of the AerPass platform is the identity assertion protocols that ensure no sensitive data is ever sent to remote servers for validation of payments, which instead use a Multi-Party Authentication procedure requiring all users to be verified.
