Coin San Francisco, CA
Coin has created a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) connected card (approximately the size of a single credit card) that can store all your swipe-able cards and be used to pay everywhere cards are accepted, all in real time. Coin is a completely unique and secure device that fits seamlessly into your wallet or purse. Coin is powered by a 128-bit encryption for all storage and communication with its easy-to-use consumer app. To start, you receive your Coin card and a card-swipe dongle that connects to your smartphone or tablet and allows you to upload all your cards onto the mobile app, which then automatically stores them onto your personal Coin card. Paying with a Coin is simple: you simply toggle through your stored cards on the digital display to select the one you want to use and swipe at any card machine. Coin is accepted everywhere credit, debit, gift cards and loyalty cards are accepted. If you leave your Coin behind, it will alert you via the accompanied mobile app on your mobile phone, or if lost, Coin will disable itself.

TagStand San Francisco, CA
NFC tags and NFC applications. NFC allows two electronic devices to exchange information if they are close to each other. For example, a cell phone can read data off of an NFC tag embedded inside of a poster or business card. An NFC tag contains small amounts of data that can be read by NFC-enabled phones and readers. It's basically a chip plus an antenna, usually embedded within a sticker, card, or poster. NFC tags have applications in advertising, ticketing, payments, events, and as accessories to mobile applications. Tagstand's app NFC Task Launcher makes extensive use of NFC tags, with the belief that near-field technology can reclaim lost seconds and minutes in our day.
