For years we have heard about a cashless and checkless society. It started back late 50’s early 60’s with the introduction of bank credit cards and then came the debit cards. However, both of those still require us to carry something to hold those items which is an inconvenience. So while the cards have moved us in the right direction, they haven’t gotten us to the level we will actually benefit from a card less society.
But that is all about to change with the world’s first experiment in Biocryptology, a mix of biometrics and cryptology. Nexus USA and the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology have started a beta program which allows the student to use a fingerprint combined with their hemoglobin with a scanning device to process a financial transaction.
You might think the downside is that a thief will have to cut off your thumb if they want to steal from us, but the researchers have figured that out as part of the Biocryptology.
With this program accomplished then the next use of the Biocryptology will be fingerprints to open the doors of our car and to start it which will truly allow us to leave the house with only the clothes on our back.
