One Coin For All Your Cards
Having a wallet is essential to our day-to-day lives, and nobody likes to leave their house without theirs. But, despite the naturally compact shape and function of a wallet, they always seem to become so bulky with loose change, notes and a vast assortment of gift cards and credit or debit cards, weighing down our pockets and bags. Well, not any more, thanks to San Francisco-based start-up company, Coin, who have made it possible to hold all of your monetary belongings on just one digital card.
Designed just like an ordinary payment card and able to be swiped just the same, all it takes is plugging in one small device into your smart phone to swipe your cards onto the Coin app. With the ability to register as many of your cards as you like – one little swipe and a simple photograph of your card to distinguish them from each other – and added perks, such as phone alerts should you leave your coin behind, now all you need is one Coin. The current iteration of the Coin product doesn’t work with ‘Chip and Pin’ but it will be altered to be compatible in the near future.
