One of the key 'real world applications' for us is a mobile #PoS payment system.

To make this a reality there are a few things that need to be true...(thread)
1) The currency should hold consistent value across all territories and can be transferred internationally without cost.

2) For #peer-to-peer payments, it’s free and near instantaneous.

3) Transactions take just seconds compared to hours-to-days with conventional bank accounts.
In contrast to other #cryptocurrencies, our goal is to enable the use of temtum for everyday purchases, for example at major retailers.

It uses the NFC capability on a smartphone interacting with standard POS terminals, which are in widespread use in developed economies.

@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences β‰  @NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol
