While digital versions of our credit and debit cards aren’t widely accepted just yet, it’s a given that in the future, the majority of the places where we shop will accept Apple Pay, Google Pay and the like. I look forward to the day when I can increase my personal security and reduce my pocket bloat by only carrying a small computer (my phone) to identify me and conduct my transactions.
From government IDs to hotel keys, the rest of our cards are quickly moving to mobile phones. As this becomes more ubiquitous, it will be harder and harder to justify carrying unique pieces of plastic in your wallet.
I look forward to this image being everywhere!
