Hi there Elizabeth,
The method that I am am talking about is a technology called Quarkcoin.
Quarkcoin was designed from the ground up to be secure and fast (transactions typically take 30 seconds or less from customer to retailer). This short video has more information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrNnrvet7Ao
Or you can go to the Official Quarkcoin website if you prefer: http://www.qrk.cc/
Quarkcoins are gaining momentum:
It is the first cryptographic currency to be accepted for in-game payments: The developers of the new Shaquille O'Neal video game (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/shaq-fu-a-legend-reborn) have made the official announcement that they will be not only accepting Quark for In-game purchases but have also created the "Quark Gauntlet" in the game: https://twitter.com/Azyouknow/status/462199664578551808
On 7 May, the above developers reached their crowd-funding goal of $450K (with some significant promotional assistance from the Quark community), as in their twitter message here:https://twitter.com/ShaqFuIsBack/status/463618395620274176
Tie-ins with other games such as Eve Online are being explored.
Quark was recently promoted in China (Zhang Zhang, a famous Chinese celebrity made a music video prominently showing Quarkcoin).
OffGamers would be included in our new initiative of teaming up with games and gaming services, as Quarkcoin offers very low fees and has a transaction time of less than 30 seconds it is ideal for micro-payments.
Quark also has a mobile wallet for Android. It works a treat, and is fast enough to be feasible for web retailers, taxi fares, bricks and mortar shops etc. You can view this here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hashengineering.quarkcoin.wallet
Note there are zero fees to start accepting Quarkcoin, but if you wish you can also use any of these merchant services (some with fees of less than 1%) to convert Quarkcoins to regular money instantly http://www.qrk.cc/accepting-quark/
In other words, Quark has huge potential, and a lot is going on behind the scenes to encourage mass adoption. If you will accept Quarkcoin as a payment service I will promote OffGamers here at our active growing forum: http://www.reddit.com/r/QuarkCoin/new/
What do think? Happy to discuss.
