WHAT IS PITCOIN?
UNIFY will operate a digital currency for 2019, to ensure speed of service, increased security and ease of transactions at the bars, food vans and merch stalls.
Most importantly, there will be reduced bar lines, reduced time spent counting out coins to buy a beer and no danger of loosing your cash in the pit.
UNIFY is a ‘cashless’ festival. In other words, to buy food, merch and drinks at the event you’ll need to use PITCOIN as CASH WILL NOT be accepted by vendors.
Either top up online or with cash or card (bring cash to speed up your time in line!). The wristband you receive upon entry to UNIFY contains a chip, which can be read by the vendor’s scanning device, that deducts a set amount depending on what you purchase. They select the transaction on their device, tap your wristband against their device and BAM transaction is complete.
After each transaction, the vendor will show you the balance on your wristband. You can also ask any vendor or top up point and they can check your wristband for you.
Yes you can! There’s two ways you can refund unspent PITCOIN:
1. Make sure you keep your wristband or take a photo of the numbers on the band. Head to PITCOIN refund website (link to come). Simply enter your full name, email address, BSB, Account Number as well as the RFID and 4-6 digit serial number printed on the plastic chip on your wristband and hit complete! Your refund will be processed back into your bank account within 14 working days. Please note, online refunds under $3.50 are unable to be processed due to the admin fee of $3.50 that exists to process your refund.
2. You can grab your refund in cash on the last day of UNIFY from our convenience store or any of our top up stations.
