Fat wallets begone: Coin combines your payment plastic into a single smart card

Ian Paul | Nov. 18, 2013
Coin's 'one card to rule them all' dream certainly seems alluring, but this plastic needs to stay close to your smartphone.

Dollars and sense

To help get the product off the ground, Coin recently began a crowdfunding campaign to raise $50,000 to produce the first wave of Coin devices, which are slated to start shipping in 2014.

If Coin sounds like something you'd like to try out, the right to an early Coin device can be yours for $50, plus $5 shipping. The company says there are only a limited number of cards being sold at $50. After that, the price will shoot up to $100. Paying convenience, it seems, comes at a premium price.
