Wocket Smart Wallet to Start Shipping Pre-Orders in May


Wocket Smart Wallet to Start Shipping Pre-Orders in May

Wocket Smart Wallet to start shipping pre-orders in May

Almost all mobile payment systems, perhaps except for Samsung, have one critical flaw. Most of them require the use of new NFC-enabled terminals to work. But what if you only have access to ye olde magnetic stripe PoS? What if you’re stuck with old fashioned swiping systems but still want to benefit from the conveniences of the modern world. Enter Wocket, advertised to be the only wallet you’ll ever need. Why? Because it can absorb all the cards you have in your wallet right now and even have spare room for physical cash.


Wocket is actually composed of two parts. The Wocket itself is a small small slab 3.46 x 2.75 x 0.39 inches in size. It is where all your card information is stored, protected by biometrics. There is no need for a smartphone as Wocket functions all by itself. Then there’s the WocketCard which has a programmable mag stripe which Wocket writes into with the credit card information needed at a particular time. All you need to do is to select the stored card you want to use from Wocket’s touchscreen, let it write on WocketCard’s stripe and use the card just as you would any normal terminal.

In a sense, it is like Stratos which we covered last month, except for two crucial differences. One, it isn’t tied to a smartphone so it’s completely standalone. Another is that Wocket is more embracing of things beyond credit cards, like barcodes and passwords, though the latter will have to be entered manually instead of being scanned by Wocket. It can even store your driver’s license data, though the screen won’t show your picture.

Wocket went for a pre-order round where early supporters could get their hands on it for only $149.99. Those will ship starting May. Once those have been satisfied, NXT-ID, the company behind Wocket, will send out invitations to purchase whatever remaining backlog they have. Only after those two phases will Wocket be made available to the general public, though the price tag by then remains undisclosed.

Business of Enigma 
Enigma has developed a process technology by which computer breaches and intrusion attempts can be detected and remedied in real-time without incident. This ability to “Live-Audit” the processes operating in an automated system and prevent manipulation and theft is a paradigm shift the industry has demanded. The live-audit of an automated process is not possible by any other current security technologies, as all operate under investigate and remove methodology, in essence the intrusion is only known when the “breach” has already occurred (ie. “You have a virus detected”) and as such damage and or some loss has already occurred. Mitigation of the event is the only outcome possible.
All third party testing on the patented process technology completed has confirmed the certainty of Enigma’s, non-forensic, live detection for process security. Functioning as a 5th Generation Language Application (5GLA), it is the only possibility of real-time data-in-motion protection for cyber security and further it will add tremendous efficiency to process improvement and digital process management (DPM). Enigma is “next-generation-security” that may be the only way to effectively and economically address cyber security for the Internet, enterprise and control systems that affect stability worldwide.
 
Enigma will initially complete and deploy a secure smartphone application for Blackberry, Apple iOS, Android and operating systems. When complete, Enigma will be able to protect with certainty, the wireless marketplace currently in excess of 7 billion devices. Overall mobile data traffic is expected to grow to 24.3 exabytes per month to 2019, nearly a tenfold increase over 2014. Mobil data traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 57% from 2014 to 2019. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/solutions/collateral/service-provider/visual-networking-index-vni/white_paper_c11-520862.html. The Enigma’s first mobile security application will be available to the marketplace for use within 10 months of receipt of funding.

The Race for the All-in-One Credit Card


The Race for the All-in-One Credit Card

There’s a revolution coming to your wallet. Soon, perhaps very soon, your wallet will become thinner. All those credit, debit, and gift cards littered throughout the sleeves of your bifold will disappear. Either people will start paying for everything with their phones, or the all-in-one credit card will become a staple. The all-in-one credit card, while perhaps slightly less practical, would be pretty damn cool. If you’re thinking of becoming an early adopter, you probably want to know which one you should be excited about? Here’s our breakdown of the contenders:

Coin

Cost: $100
Release: Spring/Summer

The Good: Coin is simple and designed to mimic the credit cards you know and love. It can be swiped just like a standard card, and thus can be used just about anywhere … for now.

The Bad: EMV (EuroPay, MasterCard, and VISA) is a global standard for use of chip cards and devices that accept them. It isn’t the standard in the United States, but it probably will be. If it becomes the standard here, which it’s supposed to in October, that could present issues for Coin and for others. Basically, they could be unusable in tons of places. Coin claims they’ll figure something out after their first version, but that means you might end up needing a future Coin 2.0. While the ability to store up to eight cards—credit, debit, gift, loyalty, and membership cards—and flip through them with the press of a button is fantastic, that storage is dwarfed by some other offerings. Finally, Coin has a life expectancy of 2 years, then it needs to be replaced. We’d ideally want something that doesn’t cost us $50/year to own.

SWYP

Cost: $49 pre-order / $99 retail
Release: Fall

The Good: It’s just like Coin except it can hold 25 cards in its encrypted memory. The creators also claim it will be EMV-ready with a firmware upgrade when the transition happens. If that really is true, that’s a big plus. SWYP also learns about your spending patterns and will pull up the right card depending on where you are. Also, while SWYP’s battery life is also two years, the company says it’ll be rechargeable.

The Bad: While it functions just like Coin, we like the look of Coin better. Coin is sexier and less utilitarian. Other than that, we need to see if they live up to their claims regarding chip cards, because it could be the same issue Coin runs into if point of sales systems require a card with a chip and some sort of workaround isn’t feasible.

Wocket

Cost: TBD (was $149 pre-order)
Release: TBD

The Good: Wocket works without a phone. You swipe cards directly into it, and while you can use a smartphone app for management and updates, you don’t need to use your phone at all if you don’t want to. While not simply a card, Wocket will have available accessories so you can clip money to it and more. It will also support barcode, QR code, and eventually Bluetooth payments. Also, while you can unlock it with a PIN, you can also do it with the sound of your voice. Oh, and it can store up to 10,000 cards. While battery life is only one year, it is rechargeable, and one year is still a long time.

The Bad: It’s not just a card, it’s a completely different device that happens to work with a card. You can’t slip the whole thing into your wallet; it is your wallet. Finally, like other cards in this category, chip and pin could present an issue. Wocket’s first version, like others, has no way to deal with that if it becomes the standard in the US, but the company claims they will figure a way if need be.
Site

Plastc

Cost: $155
Release: Summer

The Good: It looks awesome. The e-ink display and overall design make it look like a minimal, modern credit card. A deactivated chip included in the card that can be activated with a firmware update will allow it to be used in all EMV machines and devices. Again, that could be a huge plus in the future. You can store 20 cards and an unlimited amount more with the app.

The BadThe price isn’t as attractive as some of the other models. Again, you need your smartphone to store, manage, and sync your cards. Battery only lasts 30 days even though it’s rechargeable.

Stratos Card

Cost: TBD
Release TBD

The Good: While there aren’t a ton of details yet, the Stratos team claims their card will have pin and chip integration.

The Bad: Forgoing a crowdfunding campaign might be a good thing for tempering expectations and missing deadlines without an angry mob after you, but it also means we haven’t really seen much of what they’re offering. Stratos is a wild card at this point.
