A self explanatory demonstration of the application is at EasyPay.
Please use the Google Chrome! :-)
The Aadhaar number is a fantastic project that aims at giving every person in India an identity. At a fundamental level, having and being able to prove one's identity is basic human right. Being able to do this through a path of very minimal resistance opens up a plethora of opportunities for business use cases in the private sector.
EasyPay is a proof of one such application using the Aadhaar platform. It demonstrates the ability to BUY and SELL virtual candies purely through a Two Factor Authentication provided by the Aadhaar platform and its partners.
