    Just thinking on the cryptocurrency angle. Is it possible to turn a mobile phone into a NFC cryptocurrency merchant terminal? Thus allowing customers to pay via NFC from their cryptocurrency wallet on their phone.

      Hi Les,

      As far as we know, no mainstream payment processor offer the ability to accept cryptocurrency via NFC or any sort of card-present transaction.
      There’s certainly been rumors and discussions about NFC cards that could be loaded with cryptocurrency & the infrastructure exists to facilitate the payments, but it’s simply not something that processors seem to be interested in at the moment.

        Comment – Does this technology give the not so savy person on opportunity to steal your information right off of your phone or Android Wearable Device without you knowing it? Yes I saw the comment that the device needs to be two inches away but with Blue Tooth it is a bit further. I would think that a good tech would come up with a reader in the future that would read someone’s device or wearable with a bump or a shove and no one would be the wiser. Is there any type of prevention?
