De Nederlandsche Bank comes to app to check authenticity of banknotes




Who wants to check the authenticity of banknotes, can now use an app of De Nederlandsche Bank. The app is still only available for iOS, but an Android version is already in the making, promising the national bank.

Users can check bills them from the app, which is named “Real or Fake ‘in the App Store is to photograph. In addition they must first specify which ticket they try to check the authenticity of the bill and then positioning a template on the screen, which requires some practice. Then the app indicates whether a note by the bracket, or that the authenticity could not be verified.

It is not entirely clear what controls the application of De Nederlandsche Bank exactly. Also, it is probably a matter of time before counterfeiters have managed to circumvent the controls in the app. An Android version of the app is still in the making; it is not yet clear when it appears. The iOS version only works on the iPhone 5 and newer.
