You’ve heard of a traditional coin and you’ve probably heard of Bitcoin – but now, there’s simply – Coin. It’s a device, spawned from collective funding, that takes all of your credit cards and jams them into a single, sleek device.

It’s unlike Apple Pay in that a special terminal isn’t needed by merchants to accept the payment – any, fairly new, credit card machine should do.

This is one of two things:

    1. An amazing bridge between tactile credit cards and the contactless, NFC payment methods of the future, OR
    2. The next fancy gadget that gets a bunch of people’s identities stolen and their funds ripped off
