The recently launched, Ghost Coin, based on the PoS [proof-of-stake] privacy coin by John McAfee, will now be used in vending machines in Hong Kong Disneyland.
In line with a recent announcement, Ghost outlined that it partnered with crypto payment system ivendPay to deploy the coin in over 60 vending machines around Hong Kong , even some of which are installed at Disneyland.
While adding further:
“When we first launched $GHOST our vision wasn’t only to stay focused in #Privacy but also on real user adoption.”
The privacy coin and distributed exchange went live last week amid the continued controversy surrounding it. Ghost distributed exchange replaced the McAfeeDEX distributed exchange within the process.
The controversial and eccentric McAfee came under attack after some of the codes parts of the Ghost technical paper were found to be “copy-pasted” from open-source protocol PIVX’s white paper. McAfee admitted that plagiarism was involved but still threatened to sue PIVX for defamation. PIVX is additionally planning to launch its zk-SNARKS-based privacy protocol from Zcash within the upcoming fourth quarter of this year.
