Many of us remember Coin, a firm based in San Francisco because of its last year invention; a $100 card. Coin is here again with a new innovation; a digital card capable of replacing all your credit cards. In words of the firm; ‘Coin works with your debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards,’ the firm boasts. Instead of carrying several cards you carry one Coin.
The Coin card, as it is being called, works like other cards by making use of a magnetic strip, however, the information on this magnetic strip can be changed based upon what the user wants to use the card for. By making use of an app, up to eight cards can be programmed securely in the Coin card. The user can then switch between cards by pressing a button with ease.
