A QR code (quick response code) is a type of matrix barcode created in Japan back in 1994 for the Japanese automotive industry. QR codes are a machine readable label via optical scanning which contains information about just about anything you want.
Most QR codes today contain information about a website URL, identifier, address, etc. There are four types of standardized encodings used when generating QR codes (alphanumeric, byte or binary, numeric and kanji).
QR codes are made up of squares that are arranged inside a square grid usually on a white background for better contrast when scanning. These codes can be read by devices such as a camera. The data read in these patterns are present horizontal and vertically.
Today's projects in the cryptocurrency space have a pretty good incentive to facilitate crypto payments for their users. QR codes helps make this process simple and reliable. All you need is a quick scan from your smart phones camera to acquire the sending or receiving address.
Bitcoin wallet addresses as well as other types of cryptocurrencies are made up of a series of letters and numbers that can be longer than 34 characters.
