The dystopian future, where you can’t buy or sell without constantly being monitored and connected to databases containing your fingerprints, face scans, eye scans and more continues to rapidly leak into the present. The global engineers want humanity to go beyond being merely connected to the internet, they want each individual personally and intimately connected by unique bodily identifiers enabling the tracking of everything you do.
Zwipe, a technology company that creates self-contained biometric authentication solutions for payment cards and wearable devices is currently piloting a biometric payment card with an unnamed Tier 1 European bank with millions of clients across all continents. An article from FindBiometrics documents the rest of the story:
The actual pilot will be carried out in three countries in Europe, where the bank will issue biometric payment cards to a few hundred lucky cardholders in the first quarter of 2022. If that goes well, the bank plans to move forward with a full commercial launch of the biometric cards later in the summer of that year.
The cards themselves will feature Zwipe’s Pay ONE technology, which enables the use of fingerprint recognition to verify a cardholder’s identity during a transaction. In doing so, it allows payment providers to lift the payment cap on contactless transactions, and minimizes the need for physical contact with PIN pads and point-of-sale terminals during the pandemic.
Zwipe will start working with the bank and its card manufacturing partners within the month. The company believes that the cards will appeal to new and existing customers that are looking for a safe and convenient payment experience.
“We are thrilled that a Global Tier 1 bank has chosen Zwipe for their pilot and, potentially, for a commercial launch where the long-term potential could be significant,” said Zwipe CEO André Løvestam. “Besides the technology, Zwipe will also support the bank through all stages of the pilot, ensuring that all end users’ experiences and feedback are systematically captured.”
Zwipe is just one of many companies working on “solutions” such as this that will essentially serve as a digital ID. With plans in motion for a “Great Reset” of the global financial system, how much time do we really have before all banking systems converge into one giant entity requiring our biometric data, vaccine passports, and obedience to totalitarian dictates to participate?
