The Bitnote process is simple. You can load your smartphone wallet with Bitcoin or transfer money halfway around the world instantly. Just visit your local convenience store to get started.
You can clearly see the purchase amount in all four corners of the note and just above the Bitnote logo. Printed over the scratchable surface you can find the loading code. It is used primarily to load the Bitnote at the cash register, but another important function is that you can scan it using the app, to confirm the loaded bitcoin, and/or local currency.
As soon as the loading code is scratched off the redeeming codes are revealed. Thus, the power of the Bitnote is exposed for transferring value. Once more, the Bitnote is now unavailable for reloading due to the scratched off destruction of the loading code.Indeed, a Bitnote with a scratched off loading code automatically identifies the note as used and unlikely of any value.
The Bitnote includes 3 basic redundant redeeming codes below the scratch-off loading code. That is, these codes represent the exact same Bitcoin and value. Thus, when you use one of the redeeming codes, the other 2 codes will simultaneously expire as also having been redeemed.
The Bitnote utilizes a QR code that can be read and redeemed directly by the Bitnote app. Alternatively, the code may be shared and redeemed in a remote fashion.
This code consists in a list of words or phrases that can be shared by telephone or any other kind of auditory method of communication.
This code may be a string of alphanumeric characters that can be shared by SMS messaging, email, engraved text, or any other means of text communication.
Use the app to redeem the Bitnotes that you get physically or redeem one remotely using the visual or alphanumeric code.
