Imagine yourself in a restaurant enjoying time with friends over a meal. The bill arrives. You pick up your smartphone and launch Split the Tab. Hosting a tab, you invite your friends to join. They pay in using their MintChip. You pay out to the restaurant. Secure; anonymous. Easier than cash. That's Split the Tab.
Split the Tab allows restaurant-goers to quickly split the bill and then pay their share using MintChip or cash. Split the Tab communicates over Bluetooth, allowing for interoperability amongst the largest number of platforms with minimal infrastructure requirements. Bluetooth adds an additional level of privacy and security to the MintChip transaction.
