- ePoint Home – The ePoint system is a payment infrastructure for anonymous electronic transactions that is an amendment of the already popular methods used primarily in telephony (pre-paid phone cards), public transit (re-chargeable multiple passes) and various pay-per-view services. ePoints can be transfered just like any other information, in such a way that the recipient can be certain that the sender will not be able to use the same ePoint once more, because of the safety of the underlying protocol. The applications of the ePoint system can be as diverse as tracking assets in on-line games and on-line gift certificates for electronic commerce. So what is this ePoint thing? Our system aims to be a tool for simplifiing digital commerce, establishing a new tradition. ePoints are the units of payment.
