Tetrix Link harnesses near-field communication (NFC) technology present in mobile phones to enable users to conveniently share their information in just a single tap.
Powered by Filipino-led blockchain Tetrix Network and Pitaka crypto wallet, Tetrix Link cardholders will be able to select and store their information, such as their personal contact details and relevant social media accounts, and share these data when they tap or hover over their card to an NFC-enabled mobile device.
“With Tetrix Link, you can share your data to your peers more easily and would eliminate the need for multiple business cards since the data of multiple assets are stored inside the network,” said Felix Asuncion, co-founder and chief revenue officer of Tetrix Network. You can control which information to share, and lastly, you would only require a link or QR code to share.”
To use this feature:
- Cardholders must download the latest version of Pitaka mobile app.
- Sign up at here and fill out the personal details and contact information needed in the dashboard
- Once the card is purchased, receive an authentication code and use it to connect the dashboard to the Tetrix Link card.
- Share that data by tapping the card onto an NFC-enabled device, and do not remove it until the information pops up on the screen.
Tetrix Link recreates the way people use their physical wallets that now allow them to secure other forms of self-custodial data. All the data consumers need to present is housed in a handy little card, and potential connections only need to tap the card onto their NFC-enabled phones.
“Currently, we are testing it to support human resources information systems, healthcare services, and other hotel and restaurant use cases aside from it being used as business cards and personal or company ID. We’re also in talks with the local government in bringing this technology to modernize their systems,” Asuncion said.
Tetrix Link offers an easy-to-navigate user interface and is uniquely backed with blockchain. It can function as any ID or key card. Eventually, it will also store mission-critical data and other physical documents like vaccine certificates and data inside NFTs for specific use cases.
The card also has a scannable QR code in case one’s phone doesn’t support NFC. If there’s no internet connection at the moment of transfer, the receiver can just bookmark the link and access it later on. Soon, Tetrix Link will enable users to access data offline as well.
