3 What Does Armory Do?

4 What is Proof of Payment? Because Bitcoin converts money into public data, anyone can programmatically answer the question, “Did you pay for that?” © Armory Technologies, Inc By “anyone” I mean that any program can access the block chain to answer this question without using a trusted 3 rd party.

5 How does it work? Proof of payment follows these steps: 1.Payer signs a message requesting something from payee 2.Payee receives the request, verifies the payer’s message was signed, and now has the payer’s bitcoin address. 3.Payee references the payer’s bitcoin address in the block chain to get the amounts paid and when. 4.Payee assesses payment and decides to either respond to the request or show a QR code to pay. © Armory Technologies, Inc. 2014

6 Why should I care? 1.Everything that the payer and payee are doing can be done in a program. 2.Both can be anonymous. 3.Both can be program themselves © Armory Technologies, Inc. 2014

7 Anonymity Bitcoin allows anonymity, but it does guarantee it. Things you can do to improve your anonymity 1.Single use addresses 2.Hold your own private keys 3.Coin Mixing 4.Cleaning Dust 5.Don’t use exchanges 6.Do/sell things for BTC 7.Write a piece of software using proof of payment. © Armory Technologies, Inc. 2014
