You must be the age of majority (read the rules) to submit applications. They have docs for Java, .Net, Javascript and Hosted(?).

I'm still reading through the site and familiarizing myself with the API, but I figured some of you might be interested.

Thank you for this, this looks pretty interesting, and I already have a few ideas for it.

It looks cool but I cannot think of anything to write. If I think of something I will sign up though.

I really hope that they actually go through with this. As far as I can see, it replaces all the need for cash (as you only need some device to be able to read a micro sd card. Such a device could be produced for a very cheap cost, and with no continual cost like debit/credit).

The security is always a concern, but each device is set with a maximum value (so even if you break a single device you still can't take that much), and the chip, and the versions expire after a certain amount of time, forcing people to upgrade to new firmware.

Really though, even if it could be cracked, it wouldn't be a perfect hack, and it'd be the exact same as printing bills.

I got accepted for it, seems like a really cool summer project. I already have an idea based off a existing system that works really well.

I just got my chips. I am developing a couple different applications, one web based, one .NET based, and one PICchip based. (all different ideas).
