What is HotKnot?

Technology advantages:

● It can transfer information on any device with capacity touchscreen. No need to add hardware, and no requirement to the device design. Therefore, HotKnot will not increase the cost and supply more convenient and quicker transfer experience to users.


● In this mobile social era, HotKnot takes great advantages. It can transfer the files and also can establish Wi-Fi hot spot via the contacts of the touchscreen of 2 devices. Thereby, it can change phone numbers, play mobile games and other social entertainment without any network traffic or fees.


● In mobile payment apps, it takes more convenience than the NFC technology, which requires 2 devices in 2cm distance range for payment safety. However, HotKnot can get the success payment safely when two phones (with HotHnot) make a simple contact. It greatly improves the security in macro distance transmission.



HotKnot will take the place of NFC thanks to the no costs, no network traffic, low power consumption and more convenient and safer use.
