The LibertyX digital currency solution currently runs on ATMs, kiosks and point-of-sale (POS) systems.

NCR will offer the capabilities as part of its solutions for retailers, restaurants and banks, with its digital wallet and mobile applications providing capabilities across its physical and digital touchpoints.

Tim Vanderham, NCR chief technology officer, said consumer demand for digital currency solutions is growing, including the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrency, conduct cross-border remittance, and accept digital currency payments across digital and physical channels.
