-Making QR Codes More Familiar and More Fun-
The Japan Cryptocoin Association (Headquarters: Osaka, Osaka; Representative Director: Kenichi Yamashita) is excited to announce the launch of QR’z (https://japancryptocoin.org/qrz/) on February 28th, 2019 with the objective of raising awareness of the convenience and practicability of QR codes, which are adopted in a cashless society, as a “new form of advertisement.”
QR’z Is a New Puzzle System Combining Advertising and PR
As transiting into a cashless society, opportunities that make QR codes familiar are important regardless of age. Under these circumstances, the Japan Cryptocoin Association launched “QR’z” with the belief that a fun and creative way learning about QR will lead to the creation of new values.
QR’z is free to play. It is capable of transforming sharable information from companies and organizations into QR codes. It can also change the logo embed within the OR code into desired logos.
An Evolved Form of Picture Logic
Up until now, it was possible to determine the pattern before completing a picture logic puzzle. However, user cannot determine the regularity of the patterns in QR’z at first glance, meaning that user do not know if their solution is correct or not until completing the last grid. In addition, as soon as user completed the puzzle, they will be able to read the information contained in the QR code. If the QR code is a “secret key for cryptocurrency” or “gift codes for various companies,” user will receive additional enjoyment immediately after completion, in addition to the joy of solving the puzzle. “Presents of words” should also bring joy. In these manners, the utilization of QR’z can be applied to various fields, and in multiple ways of usage.
The Japan Cryptocoin Association aim to build out an environment in which individuals, companies, and organizations can create puzzles themselves. This will allow them to share information for publicity when needed. Symbols that hide QR codes can also be set up individually. Since users accumulate points as they solve puzzles, their rankings can be displayed. Puzzles can be restricted to certain countries, such as puzzles that are limited to people in Cambodia, and it is also possible to look at a map and see how many people from each country are solving the puzzle that you created.
