The year of the QR code revival

In China, QR codes have always had a tremendous success, partly due to China’s largest social network, WeChat, that has a built-in QR code reader. According to CNN Tech, the Chinese market registered $1.65 trillion in transactions using the codes in 2016, accounting for about a third of all mobile payments in the country. In China QR codes are everywhere and you can do everything with them, from making payments to connecting with others, or linking to a specific page or piece of content, the sky's the limit.
