NewsBTC Pakistan is proud to introduce the bitcoin NFC Wallet Card
To understand the purpose of this card we need to first understand NFC. According to Wikipedia Near field communication (NFC) means near field communication or radio communication over short distances, but has come to be used in most cases for a specific set of protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone,to establish connection with other device by bringing them closer together and transferring data.
Bitcoin NFC Wallet Card:
The idea was conceived by us to provide our users free of cost these reprogrammable nfc chip based cards which can be programmed to their liking. There are many case scenarios that you can use but the one we will cover here is the way to put your bitcoins on it or use this card as a merchant. Ledger sells this same cards for 29.00 € and calls it a java card running fidesmo platform which is open source and can be implemented here.
Bitcoin NFC wallet card can be used with bitcoin android based wallets such as ones provided by Mycelium and Blockchain.info. Since we want our users to be creative we have used top of the line NFC chip with 10000+ write cycles and a capacity of 888 bytes.
