kevin. Triumphs with First Account-to-Account NFC iPhone Transaction

kevin.

New York, NY – In a groundbreaking event set to disrupt the in-store payment landscape, kevin., a pioneer in payment technology, has successfully conducted the first-ever account-to-account NFC transaction on an iPhone. Video of transaction: link In a financial world where convenience and security are paramount, kevin. has established a new pinnacle by executing the first non-Apple Pay account-to-account near-field communication (NFC) payment on an iPhone. This technological leap forward follows the European Commission’s pressure on Apple to democratize NFC access. It comes after years in which Apple's strict control over NFC technology in iOS devices had stifled third-party competition. Pavel Sokolovas, co-founder of kevin., articulates the magnitude of this moment: “Breaking through the final barriers of NFC payments on iOS devices represents a true watershed moment. We’re immensely proud to be the first to provide account-to-account transactions using Apple’s NFC, giving consumers the power to choose how they pay.” In January 2022, kevin. made waves by enabling this innovative payment method for Android users, a move lauded for its originality and drive towards an open payment ecosystem. Now, with regulatory changes in stride, kevin. swiftly attained authorization under Apple's NFC Entitlement Program and embarked on development in their controlled environment. Just six weeks following Apple's program launch, kevin. celebrated the successful execution of the experimental transaction in development mode, setting the stage for what could revolutionize Point of Sale (POS) interactions. Sokolovas outlined the technical journey: “We’ve been rigorously developing within Apple’s architectural framework. Our team worked tirelessly to integrate our kevin. technical solution within Apple host card emulation (HCE), including security standards, transaction validation and so much more to create a seamless experience allowing users transactions from within their banking or wallet apps.” The European Commission continues to monitor feedback from early developers like kevin. while anticipating the official commencement of broader NFC implementation. This scrutiny underscores the Commission's dedication to nurturing innovation and equitable competition in the mobile payment sphere. Looking ahead, the industry anticipates a surge in similar payment solutions following this initial success. kevin. has indeed set a dominant precedent, promising an open market where consumers are no longer limited by device-specific payment platforms — a fundamental reshaping of how transactions are conducted worldwide. kevin. is a visionary technology firm reshaping payment systems for tomorrow’s needs. From their global headquarters in Europe to the recent expansion into the bustling financial hub of Dubai, kevin.’s mission has been consistent: to offer reliable end-to-end technology and significant savings on transaction fees without changing the way people pay. The introduction of their multi-tenant, brand-agnostic payment acceptance network marks a significant shift for consumers and businesses alike, granting autonomy and value unimpeded by the constraints of legacy technology.

kevin. triumphiert mit der ersten NFC-Transaktion von Konto zu Konto auf dem iPhone

kevin.

In einem bahnbrechenden Ereignis, das die Zahlungslandschaft in Geschäften durcheinanderbringen wird, hat kevin., ein Pionier in der Zahlungstechnologie, die erste jemals durchgeführte NFC-Transaktion von Konto zu Konto auf einem iPhone erfolgreich abgewickelt. Video der Transaktion: Link In einer finanziellen Welt, in der Bequemlichkeit und Sicherheit von größter Bedeutung sind, hat kevin. einen neuen Höhepunkt erreicht, indem er die erste nicht-Apple-Pay NFC-Zahlung von Konto zu Konto auf einem iPhone ausgeführt hat. Dieser technologische Sprung nach vorne folgt dem Druck der Europäischen Kommission auf Apple, den NFC-Zugang zu demokratisieren. Es kommt nach Jahren, in denen Apples strenge Kontrolle über die NFC-Technologie in iOS-Geräten den Wettbewerb Dritter gedrosselt hatte. Pavel Sokolovas, Mitbegründer von kevin., drückt die Tragweite dieses Moments aus: „Der Durchbruch der letzten Barrieren von NFC-Zahlungen auf iOS-Geräten stellt einen wahren Wendepunkt dar. Wir sind ungemein stolz, die Ersten zu sein, die Transaktionen von Konto zu Konto unter Verwendung von Apples NFC ermöglichen, und geben den Verbrauchern damit die Macht zu wählen, wie sie bezahlen.“ Im Januar 2022 sorgte kevin. für Aufsehen, indem diese innovative Zahlungsmethode für Android-Nutzer ermöglicht wurde, ein Schritt, der für seine Originalität und seinen Antrieb hin zu einem offenen Zahlungsökosystem gelobt wurde. Jetzt, mit den regulatorischen Änderungen im Gleichschritt, erlangte kevin. schnell die Autorisierung unter Apples NFC-Berechtigungsprogramm und begann mit der Entwicklung in ihrer kontrollierten Umgebung. Nur sechs Wochen nach dem Start von Apples Programm feierte kevin. die erfolgreiche Durchführung der experimentellen Transaktion im Entwicklungsmodus und ebnete damit den Weg für eine Revolution der Interaktionen am Point of Sale (POS). Sokolovas umriss die technische Reise: „Wir haben rigoros innerhalb von Apples Architekturrahmen entwickelt. Unser Team arbeitete unermüdlich daran, unsere technische Lösung von kevin. in die Host-Card-Emulation (HCE) von Apple zu integrieren, einschließlich Sicherheitsstandards, Transaktionsvalidierung und so vielem mehr, um ein nahtloses Erlebnis zu schaffen, das Benutzern Transaktionen innerhalb ihrer Bank- oder Wallet-Apps ermöglicht.“ Die Europäische Kommission setzt die Überwachung des Feedbacks von Frühentwicklern wie kevin. fort, während sie den offiziellen Beginn einer breiteren NFC-Implementierung erwartet. Diese Prüfung unterstreicht das Engagement der Kommission, Innovation und gerechten Wettbewerb im Bereich mobiler Zahlungen zu fördern. Mit Blick auf die Zukunft erwartet die Branche einen Anstieg ähnlicher Zahlungslösungen nach diesem anfänglichen Erfolg. kevin. hat tatsächlich einen dominierenden Präzedenzfall gesetzt, der ein offenes Marktversprechen macht, in dem Verbraucher nicht länger auf plattformspezifische Zahlungssysteme beschränkt sind – eine grundlegende Umgestaltung der Art und Weise, wie Transaktionen weltweit durchgeführt werden. kevin. ist ein visionäres Technologieunternehmen, das Zahlungssysteme für die Bedürfnisse von morgen neu gestaltet. Von ihrem globalen Hauptsitz in Europa bis zur jüngsten Expansion in den pulsierenden Finanzknotenpunkt Dubai, kevins Mission war stets konsequent: zuverlässige End-to-End-Technologie und signifikante Einsparungen bei Transaktionsgebühren anzubieten, ohne die Art und Weise zu ändern, wie Menschen bezahlen. Die Einführung ihres mandantenfähigen, markenagnostischen Netzwerks zur Zahlungsannahme markiert eine bedeutende Verschiebung für Verbraucher und Unternehmen gleichermaßen und gewährt Autonomie und Wert, unbeeinträchtigt durch die Beschränkungen überkommener Technologie. Download: Kevin-Logo, Bild von Pavel Sokolovas und iOS-Transaktionsvideo: Link - ende - Über kevin. kevin. ist ein wegweisendes Technologieunternehmen mit der Mission, veraltete Zahlungssysteme zu revolutionieren. Mit einer neu errichteten Infrastruktur macht kevin. Transaktionen effizienter, sicherer und bequemer für digitale und physische Verkäufe. Das mandantenfähige Zahlungsannahmenetzwerk des Unternehmens ist markenneutral, weiß beschriftet und ohne Vermittler und bietet Partnern die vollständige Kontrolle über ihre Zahlungsprozesse im Geschäft.

Engagement für das Ökosystem Das Ziel von kevin. ist es, alle Akteure im Zahlungsökosystem zu stärken, einschließlich Banken, digitalen Wallets, Einzelhändlern und anderen.
