That said, I wonder if anyone will even accept it in the US, won't they be concerned that it looks fake and doesn't have an authorised signature?
Also, I wonder if there are any plans for chip-and-pin. A swipe-card is very out-of-the-ordinary in the UK and Europe, I've found.
Mind, regarding skimming, the FAQs also say "You can only add cards that you own to your Coin." That sounds more like an instruction than a technical limitation. If there are things like this that they've not thought through, pretty sure EMV will never happen.
I thought it was a cute touch. :P
