Coin 2.0 Release Date

Coin launches new second-gen smart card with NFC; all current users get free upgrades

Coin launches new second-gen smart card with NFC; all current users get free upgrades

Coin was the first company to announce a smart card solution capable of replacing all of the credit cards in your wallet with a single device that could securely store account data and switch between accounts on the fly.

Second, and most importantly, Coin will provide its new and improved card to all current Coin customers free of charge. More →
