Although the technophobe in me would be a little terrified to use this, the COIN system is kind of cool. It's basically a connected device that contains "all your credit, debit, gift, loyalty and membership cards in one place." Instead of carrying all those cards in your wallet, you'd carry COIN and it would behave exactly the same way as any of those cards. The majestically bearded hipster in the video above explains it all.

Our mobile app will allow you to add, manage and sync the cards that you choose to store on your Coin. The process of adding card information to the mobile app is very simple and is done by taking a picture or two and swiping your Coin through a small device we provide you with.
