Martin Wismeijer, the Dutch founder of ATM firm Mr Bitcoin, has embedded two micro-chips in his hands to enable him make contact-less payments. He embedded a tiny chip in his hands to keep his digital currency safe, and also gives him an in-body set of keys and an alarm clock.
The chips can be used to store electronic currency that can be read by a range of electronic devices, which include variety of smart-phones like the Apple iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and computers. Each chip can store around 880 bytes of information, and the chips were purchased for $99 along with a preloaded syringe.
Dutch man Embedded Chips in his hands
Having a chip in his hands allows him to do things like give out his contact details by simply having his hand scanned, or make payments with the hand containing the encrypted wallet.
Wismeijer also hopes to get a special door lock fitted to his house, which will allow him to do away with keys by touching his palm on the door frame to enter.
Wismeijer’s company installs and operates crypto-currency cash machines within and around his local Amsterdam and across Europe.
