An IOTA (MIOTA) Community member has implemented the digital currency as a payment system for any game or app.
Marlon Morales, an IOTA community member and developer, made the disclosure, revealing that the payment system could work on all platforms including Android, IOS, MacBook, Windows, WebApp, Playstation 4, Xbox among others.
For now, the payment system supports sending of IOTA cryptocurrency, checking balance, and saving unused addresses.
While nothing much has been revealed about the development, the co-founder of IOTA, Dominik Schiener said the innovation is a “really nice work” worthy of commendation.
However, Marlon, who is behind the project, said it designed to be a community program to give free access to anyone willing to implement the payment system on their games.
“For people looking to do something similar, please see it as a community program,” Marlon said.
He added that the idea will make it possible for anyone to trade items and pay with IOTA within different gaming platforms.

IOTA is welcoming series of innovations into its ecosystem. Late October, the project partnered Dell and Linux Foundation to work together on a project centered on increasing the transparency and trustworthiness of data.
The project was branded as Alvarium and focused on inventing intrinsic trust across different systems.
In a post, Dell said the innovation “will completely redefine the way we view data and transparency, as well as improve the way every single industry handles privacy”.
Early October, the Linux Foundation and IOTA agreed on a collaboration on “edge computing” project designed to launch open-source standards for a ready-to-use technology stack, reports a platform.
This weighty progress was succeeded by the news of IOTA co-founder Sergey Ivancheglo IOTA quitting the cryptocurrency space, completely.
Few weeks back, the erstwhile crypto-project co-founder said he had sold all his cryptocurrency.
He said on Twitter: “Today is my last day of working on cryptocurrencies. I don’t own personal cryptocoins anymore. My projects use IOTA which is the best distributed registry technology to date.”
The co-founder sold what was left as part of his coin to avoid a conflict of interest when working on current projects, he said in a recent AMA on Discord.
He had resigned from IOTA’s board of Director before completely leaving the cryptocurrency industry.
