EMV chips are the small, square computer chips that appear on debit, credit and prepaid cards to help safeguard them against fraud. EMV (which stands for Europay, Mastercard and Visa) chips create a one-of-a-kind code for each credit transaction.
World’s first payment chip that can be implanted under skin launched by Polish-British startup. https://notesfrompoland.com/2021/04/14/worlds-first-payment-chip-implanted-under-skin-launched-by-polish-british-startup/
Normalization! The first microchip was implanted into a human back in 1998, but the technology has been available commercially only in the past decade. The pay-with-hand microchip is a little bigger than a grain of rice and weighs less than a gram. You can use the chip to pay wherever contactless payments are accepted.
The company, called Walletmor, is selling microchips the size of a small safety pin that is implanted under the skin of the individual’s hand and cost just over $200.
According to the company, more than 200 individuals have already received the microchip, and Walletmor believes it’s because people do not want to worry about losing their wallets or getting their bank cards stolen.
