Twenty residents of Czech Republic have implanted chips with bitcoin wallets under the skin of their hands.
The company engaged in the distribution of electronic implants claims that the interest in its products is growing.
Chip allows not only paying for goods and services in bitcoins with the help of contactless payment technology, but also opening doors with a numeric lock and unblocking a computer and smartphone.
Sizes of implant are 12×2 mm. It comes in a syringe, and in order to implant it, you just have to make an injection under sterile conditions, following all precaution measures against infectioning. Chip is usually placed between the thumb and forefinger of the left hand.
Paralelní Polis center has organized two large scale implantation campaigns: the first one – in the beginning of the year, and the second – in September. The second campaign saw twice as many participants as the first.
