Browser and Bitcoin: Google, Apple, etc. began to use compatible with the encrypted currency API


nnAccording to the World Wide Web Consortium, browsers such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple and Mozilla will begin to be compatible with encrypted currency payment, and the browser drop-down menu provides a variety of available encrypted currency payments. But now also need to trade between merchants and consumers, to determine their willingness to use what kind of payment. So the project will take quite some time. It is expected that more browsers will support this project next year.n

Some well-known technology company developers to create a browser API, and soon you can easily use the encrypted currency online to buy goods and services.n
The project leader is the World Wide Web Consortium, which includes Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Apple and Mozilla, a substantial step towards achieving the currency-based webpage payment standard for the first time in 2013. With more development momentum in Bitcoin and other encrypted currencies, the project marks the recognition that the encrypted currency is more secure as a payment technology.n
In fact, the W3C has been increasing interest in block-chain technology over the past few years and organized its first block-chain workshop last June. But while participants are concerned about the standardization and democratization of the use of the technology, the formal work has not yet been identified. However, this situation has changed.n
The browser currently deployed with this API includes Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Webkit, Mozilla Firefox, Samsung Internet browser and Facebook’s in-app browser. When activated, the Payment Request API will support the direct storage of new payment types in the browser, including Bitcoin, Taitong and any other available secure currency (as well as traditional online payment methods).n
Consumers will be able to choose a supported payment method in the drop-down menu, which is now widely supported by this auto-fill extension.n
W3C payment project director Ian Jacobs said it is time for developers to start writing their favorite payment method code.n
n”This is a good opportunity for people to start writing blockbank-based payment and testing APIs, which is what we are in, testing, and interoperable development stages.”n

stable state n
The API and the W3C call for “extensive deployment” because it says it can give consumers more options to make businesses more secure online checkout.n
As part of this project, the WebKit browser engine, which supports Safari and Apple App Store, has updated its working status from “under consideration” to “development” earlier this month, although there are more advanced stages in the future.n
n”The details of the W3C process are already mature and we have entered a stable phase from the preparation phase.”n
nn”This means that now we know what APIs we want to do, we are developing test versions, researching browser interoperability, and allowing the deployment of security to be unified.”n
nW3C standardization work has been very slow, from the beginning of the community to the interested group, and then to the working group, each stage spent a few years. This is also one of the reasons why encrypted currency entrepreneurs are hesitant to join the affiliate program, although the creation of the league’s Tim Berners-Lee is well known.n

Not so fastn
But the future process is not as simple as it sounds.n
Jacobs will be next to the media, businesses need to use API and choose the preferred payment method. Consumers at this stage need to download the browser extensions and indicate what payment they are using.n
In other words, businesses need to build a new payment method to accept the page, and users need to “use our agreement to prepare the” wallet. Jacobs said, “so that the ecosystem can integrate businesses and users side.”n
The W3C has partnered with a third-party payment app to integrate encrypted and non-credit card payments into the API, and both merchants and consumers understand it.n
n”So, for example, you might find a payment method for the URL that people can offer to pay for the app and claim to support that payment method.”n
nThe next face-to-face browser API session of the Web Payment Working Group will be held on November 6th and 7th, and the show is October 23, showing how Airbnb, Google and MasterCard use this API.n
Jacobs, who is very confident about the recent work, says:n
n”You will start to see API early adopters use it and you will see more browsers support it, and I hope it will be widely deployed in the middle of next year.”n
