THE QR code generator for zAliens

zQR is a lightweight easy-to-use, open-source, QR code generator, with integrated meme functionality designed for the Zenon universe of zApps.

zQR provides an API for other zApps to integrate QR functionality (e.g. @z_onum zqr could display your favorite zQR image)

zQR is currently written in Python with code released into the public domain -https://github.com/Clonewar57/zQR

zQR can be used in many potential public outreach projects



Simple API for embedding zQR codes in any zAPP:

zqr(‘Zenon address’,…)

Options: Type of zQR frame to display, height and width of output QR code



zqr(‘XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX’, z = ‘meme_gorilla’, height = 480, width =640)


Community Engagement

zQR will be promoted by two primary engagement projects, a beta test and a logo contest.

Beta Test

To promote awareness and test zQR, a beta test will be conducted within the community of Zenon Telegram and Twitter group members. Users who post their own zQR code will receive 1 ZNN up to a cap of 100 unique users.

Logo contest

A logo contest will be conducted to select the default zQR frame design.

This will allow further community engagement and offer users a chance to personalize the zQR code.
