  1. Isnt that what mobile payment is for? Like Apple and Google Pay etc.? Why go back to cards even tho the idea behind it is cool? I thought the goal was to have just a smartphone and pay with it and all that fancy stuff, instead of having to carry around card(s)

  2. It's pretty interesting, but I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with the tech yet. Too many ways for things to go wrong. I mean, if it were open hardware/software I'd grab one in a heartbeat.

  3. problem being : in the 21st century magstrips are not actually used anymore – at least not in 1st world countries (excluding murrikah). Chips and NFC are the most widely supported card technologies nowadays. Some countries are even starting to remove magstrips altogether because its a horrible, insecure, unreliably technology from long ago
