Many contributors in thenewboston community are sharing the skills and talents they use at mainstream jobs to advance our project. It is especially gratifying to see the diversity of apps being built for our blockchain. TNBPay is a payment integration solution that allows merchants to accept thenewboston coin (TNBC) as a payment method.
Inspired by a Blazing Fast Blockchain
Daniel is a developer who has worked with popular e-commerce platforms such as WooCommerce. He heard from a friend that Bucky Roberts was working on a blockchain project and people could earn TNBC for contributing their talents. Daniel checked out thenewboston blockchain and was impressed by its speed; it was one of the fastest cryptos he had encountered. He was inspired to make TNBC a viable e-commerce payment option for goods and services.
Expanding thenewboston Ecosystem
Daniel knew from experience that making it easy for merchants to accept TNBC on their sites would likely increase the crypto’s viability and demand. A team was assembled. The project was proposed to thenewboston core team and approved. The team went to work and launched the initial MVP two months later.
Plans for the TNBPay Project
As of now, the team has successfully built an integration for WooCommerce and Magento. They have the following planned deliverables:
Payment plugin for other popular e-commerce platforms: These plugin will include: PrestaShop, Shopify, BigCommerce, Wix Stores, and other platforms that allow custom integrations.
Web app: The web app will increase flexibility and expand payment solutions for merchants allowing them to accept TNBC payments seamlessly. This capability opens up a variety of opportunities for the use of TNBPay, including:
- Creating online stores hosted on the application
- Selling virtual or physical products
- Generating payment or donation links
- Sending invoices to customers
- Performing business reporting

Q: Where do you see this project in 2022?
A: The success of TNBPay depends on the success of thenewboston. As the adoption of thenewboston blockchain and TNBC increase, TNBPay will be the project facilitating the integration. Our team expects the project to be an integral part of making TNBC a mainstream form of payment for goods and services.
