QR Code Information
What Is A QR Code?
At WearableQR we're passionate about the futuristic technology and the chance for crypto payments thanks to QR codes. So on this page we decided to look into the topic in more depth and discover as much information about these unique digital codes.
A QR Code is a mixed-style barcode, often referred to as a matrix. It was invented in the 90's by a Japanese company. The QR code is essentially like a barcode, with information about the product/item embedded into the code. QR codes can contain links to applications, websites, products, crypto currency payment wallets, and more.
For a more technically look at QR codes, the system uses four encoding methods to store data, these are alphanumeric, binary, numeric, and kanji. QR stands for Quick Response, an apt name for something that brings up details immediately when scanned.
In the 21st century the use of QRcodes is growing, with more people and businesses using them in their everyday life. Our range of personal QR code clothing and accessories are ideal for setting a futuristic trend and having unique, one-of-a-kind gear that people can send crypto to!
