Passionfly 2016

Passion Fly just soared its wings with its latest event last May 28 – 29 2016. Passion Fly Lifestyle Fair is a lifestyle bazaar that let’s start ups, creative entrepreneurs and bloggers strut their stuff to the curious event goers.

Fashion, food, and cool thingamajigs were the center of this event. It’s awesome to see creative people talk about their passion and their vision.
It’s a beautiful synergy of creativity and passion and Tag just had to be there. So what did we do this time?

Knowing that we have experience in handling registrations, we offered our services to Passion Fly. We became a major sponsor and provided vouchers for Tagcash, Tagwild and Tag77 for the raffle

We also had a place for our awesome booth, it’s our very own space to let people know more about Tag. We also served popcorn and other sweets to the event goers.

The event ended with a bang, we were glad to be a part of this event. As a fellow start-up, we felt and understood the pride and effort of these great individuals. So we partnered with them as a payments and rewards gateway. We want them to have an easy to use payment gateway to help them step up their game.

We want to become the beacon of awesomeness to our fellow start ups, that is why we push ourselves in doing the best we can in the events that we’re in. So we can proudly say that it’s truly time for Tag.

Tag’s 9th mixer

The rains have started and like TAG it pours. The start of June marked our 9th mixer, and what better to meet the cold season with something warm.

Friends and potential clients gathered and had the time of their lives. Laughing, cheering, sharing ideas. It was a night to remember.

Awesome shout outs to our regular attendees and our newcomers. And remember,it’s time for Tag.

Blogapalooza 2016

Tagcash is forever grateful in being invited for major events. It’s a good place for Tag to show what its got and also a chance to explore new experiences and meet new people. Just like last May 21, 2016, where we became a major sponsor and the main registration for Blogapalooza 2016.

Blogapalooza is an annual bloggers convention that let’s bloggers and business engage with one another. A blogger that supports a business can help curb his/her followers to support said business,

The event felt like a carnival. Games, toys, food, you name it. The event was totally made for casual fun.

IMG_0278 IMG_0121 IMG_0065 IMG_0044 IMG_0048 IMG_0049 IMG_0050 IMG_0016 IMG_0018 IMG_0007

Major Sponsors were given booth areas so that they can show their stuff. Some provided games, while others provided freebies. We had our own Star Wars decorated booth where we were able to showcase the things that users can do in Tag. We shared our goal in making online payments and community building become a natural part of the blogosphere.

We also gave out loot bags and our booth had our very own slot machine. The winners get a Tagband or a Tag shirt.

We’re gonna name drop some of the major celebrities that went to the event. There was Christian Bautista, who shared his experience in brand recognition. And then we had Erica Padilla, a yogi and sports blogger best known for her feisty go getter attitude. Last but not the least, we had Lloyd Cadena. Lloyd Cadena is an online celebrity known for his memes and hilarious online skits.

Blogapalooza 2016 marks the running start of smart blogging. Being able to blog with the intent of being more than just a blog and more of a business gateway and providing influence to your target audience. We are proud to be a part of this major event and we hope to join more events such as this.

And remember, it’s time for Tag!

Tag’s 8th Mixer, Pitching it Up

The end of summer does not mean that it’s the end of fun times. For Tag, May is the start of something new

.IMG_0366 IMG_0385 IMG_0380 IMG_0379IMG_0388 IMG_0390 IMG_0391 IMG_0394

With our 8th mixer, we decided to ask our guests to bring their ideas and business ventures to the table. Knowing that they have a venue for pitching creates an energy that drives people to give it their all.

IMG_0439 IMG_0440 IMG_0449 IMG_0485 IMG_0476 IMG_0470 IMG_0464 IMG_0461 IMG_0488 IMG_0500 IMG_0496 IMG_0513 IMG_0522

Shout outs to Gods of Eden for coming to the mixer, they were there to get the word out for their concert here in the Philippines and also because we’re cool. For those of you who don’t know, Gods of Eden is an Australian progressive metal rock band.

IMG_0524 IMG_0525 IMG_0526 IMG_0534 IMG_0533 IMG_0531 IMG_0530 IMG_0527 IMG_0536 IMG_0537 IMG_0539 IMG_0540 IMG_0541 IMG_0547 IMG_0542

The night ended with a bang. New friendships were formed, new ideas were made and best of all, we gave everyone a wonderful time.

May the 4th be with you and remember it’s time for Tag.

Extending Chat Functionality in the Miskio App



We have had personal chat within the app for some time now – we use the Jabber XMPP protocol; What’s App also uses this. It means we can also offer the chat functionality outside of our app, so customers can use any chat app such as Pidgin, iChat or Adium. All you need is the username which is your and the password which you can get from the website or from the app itself in preferences. Then just add in the server we use for chat which is

Money can be transferred instantly in chat, for example typing “#pay100” will send 100 of whatever your default wallet is (set in preferences) to the person you are chatting to. Miskio has added the function for customers to chat directly to companies and groups. Staff members can be added by the company, and when a customer clicks chat on the company details page they are presented with a list of staff members. Staff can decide to be available or not via their preferences screen. Sending money to a staff member who has been contacted this way actually sends money to the company wallet.

Companies and groups can also use their own desktop or mobile chat software to communicate with customers, although the payment features and other BOT features won’t be usable. As we move forward, BOT functionality will be added to the chat for companies and groups, so that order taking can be done entirely via chat, or customer feedback can be taken and stored for later use. We can customize this as needed.

Miskio will also be adding in voice calling very soon, and will follow the same idea – any SIP app can be used, so it could be used as a kind of PBX for companies.

Tagcash App changes name to Miskio

The name of the main app under development has now been changed to MISKIO, separating it from the mPOS app also under development. There were so many things that have nothing to do with the main activities of Tagcash, although Tagcash wallets, charging and rewards are integrated into Miskio app.

As Miskio progresses, it provides a showcase of what can be done with the Tagcash API – chat, shopping, services and rewards. Tagcash remains a payment system used within the Philippines only, but the rewards features (creation and management of own points, use of Tagcoin etc) will be available worldwide.

The Tagcash mPOS app is purely for charging and crediting of user accounts, either directly on NFC cards and bands as stored value, or for charging of online accounts using PIN for verification.

We will also be adding Stripe Connect for customers who use it, as well as a cash receipt element for tracking charges etc. There is a simple inventory feature, for bus trips which can be customized according to customer requirements.

For security, Tagcash is working with Famoco mobile device management to allow complete remote management and tracking of devices we supply.

IOT Summit just got Tagged

The IOT or Internet of Things is a major event that promotes and talks about using the internet in enhancing normal everyday things, such as wearable tech and network embedded items. A network embedded item is able to receive, use and send data through the internet, making it more than meets the eye.

With that said, Tag being a major ambassador of wearable tech(click on this link here to know more about our NFC bands) got to be a part of the IOT.

As a sponsor/exhibitor of this great event, the registration committee decided to use our Tagbands as a ticket for the Panelist’s Pitching Event. It became a ticket, a fashion accessory and mobile wallet for our app. (Talk about more than meets the eye)


20160304_103805   20160304_111356




The event ran for 2 days, the 1st consisted of pitching and spreading the love with our booth while the 2nd day was allotted for the hackathon.  With our booth set and IOT ready, we were ready to entertain, lead and share our view and passion towards wearable tech.

Our curious visitors ranged from students to start up owners. We realized that the students were curious on how wearable tech can help them with their studies,while start-up owners  plan to use wearable tech to make an innovative business. In the end, everyone learned from this insightful experience.

Other booths were able to show their version of innovative design. From Cloud implementation, Big Data Analysis to 3D Printing, this year’s IOT proved that it’s an event worth experiencing.

Moving forward, the Hackathon was probably the most exciting part of the IOT. The sight of teamwork and innovation can be summed as inspirational and noteworthy.

The winner of this event utilized our NFC/RFID TagBand as a key to unlock doors. It sounds simple but they used the internet to store the ID of the TagBand so that only authorized bands can unlock the door. Simple, safe and very practical.

Seeing these people come up with new ideas and  future planning just says that we are ready for the future.

By the way did we mention that our Boss “Mark Vernon” was one of the panelists for this event.

The IOT is a great hub for innovative business owners, start-ups, and students. Panelists were able to share their ideas and concepts for everyone to check and expand.

The future is here, and it’s time for Tag.

TAGphone, The harmony of Portability and Heavy Duty

If you’ve been to one of our mixers, you probably saw our Boss “casually” showing off our app on a specific phone. Chances are, he dropped said phone on purpose to show its awesomeness.

Showmanship aside, the smartphone isn’t just your average smartphone. This Smartphone or as we would like to call it the “TAGphone” is a highly durable smartphone enclosed in a rubber shell. Whether it’s from a high fall or water related accidents the TAGphone will still be intact and operational.



Tagphones are equipped with NFC readers which is needed to operate the Tagcash App. Remember to also check out our latest blogpost on utilizing the TAG Merchant App to see how well it goes.

The TAGphone along with our TAGapp can be treated as a heavy armored portable POS machine that can withstand potential accidents, such as food spills and accidental drops.



TAG is the main distributor of TAGphones, so if you want our hardcore phone then give us a call or email us at (632) 8042486

The price for the phone is Php 7000, while the monthly subscription is Php500. We require a security deposit of Php 7000 for a subscription and this deposit will be returned upon termination of the subscription and return of the unit.
