Enabling decentralized payments & payment processing of cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency for payments has been one of the big goals for the industry but has had issues due to wildly shifting values, liquidity, difficulties of reporting payments, currency risks, & more. The PegNet allows users within their wallets to choose their exposure to any of 32 asset values. And yet, with the PegNet, users (merchants & customers) can make payments in any of the real world currencies without having to resort to 3rd parties such as exchanges & payment processors.
