Biometric Stock Alert: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) Appoints Two Former MasterCard Executives to Its Newly Formed Advisory Board

SHELTON, CT - December 17, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announces the appointment of two key advisory board members, Mr. Lawrence Flanagan and Mr. Ken Moy. The appointments from the card payment industry align with the company's roll-out and 2014 launch of The Wocket™, a next generation biometrically secure wallet.

"We are honored and excited to have two luminaries of the card payment world on our advisory board," said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, Inc. "Their experience is invaluable to our future prospects and growth for The Wocket™. We look forward to growing our advisory board over the next few months with equally talented and experienced individuals."
Mr. Lawrence Flanagan is President and Founder of New Tech Haven since January 2013 and was formerly the Executive Dean at the University of New Haven College of Business. Flanagan is regarded as one of the most accomplished global marketing leaders in the country. Prior to his career in academia, he spent nearly three decades in corporate America as an executive at MasterCard Worldwide, the Procter & Gamble Company and L'Oreal USA.
As the global chief marketing officer at MasterCard, he managed a $1.5 billion budget, directed marketing strategies in more than 50 countries and helped launch the company's hugely successful "Priceless" advertising campaign. He also established strategic partnerships with Major League Baseball, the PGA Tour and Champions League soccer in Europe and was part of the executive team that spearheaded MasterCard's highly successful initial public offering in 2006. He earned six Gold Effie awards from the American Marketing Association, the most prestigious honor among marketing professionals, and was recognized as one of the "25 Most Influential People in Sports" in 2004 by SportBusiness International. In 2008, the NY AdClub named Flanagan "Person of the Year". In 2013, the University of New Haven awarded a Doctor of Business Administration honoris causa to Flanagan.
Flanagan, who is a former national co-chair of the CMO Collective, is active with Save the Children and previously served on the University of New Haven's Board of Governors. He is on the advisory boards of Visitdays.com and Fraud.net.
The second appointment, Mr. Ken Moy, was formerly senior vice president and Group Head of US Emerging Payments at MasterCard Worldwide.
Moy led the execution of the company's digital conversion strategy and managed all aspects of product development and a diverse set of existing products including online and offline payments, authentication solutions, spending controls and alerts services. He launched MasterPass, the firm's digital wallet solution and important pillar to overall strategy, achieving over 25,000 online merchants, and wallet distribution with over 20 financial institutions.
Moy has extensive experience in large-scale rollouts, partnerships, corporate development, strategic planning, business administration and product management, in the technology, commerce and financial services space. He led an exclusive agreement with Google, Citibank and First Data to launch Google Wallet, the first commercially available mobile payment solutions. He also led an exclusive agreement with Intel for access to embedded technology in Intel PCs to deliver enhanced security and user experience for electronic ecommerce.
Prior to his nearly 14 year career at MasterCard, Mr. Moy enjoyed a successful 10 year career at Citibank where he held a range of leadership roles in the firm's payment cards and wholesale banking businesses.
He was a Smart Card Alliance Board Member from 2004-2010 and is a frequent industry speaker and commentator.
Presently, Moy is Founder and President of Harvest Advisors LLC, a provider of strategy, business development and implementation advice to start-ups and technology solution providers in the developing commerce space.

Biometric Stock Alert: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) Upcoming Release of Wocket(TM) Taps Into Ramping Demand for Digital Wallets and Currencies

BOSTON, MA - December 11, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) SoundView Technology Group: New research note points to recent industry developments as important drivers to adoption of the upcoming NXT-ID (OTCQB: NXTD) Wocket.

Over 7 million consumers have watched a marketing video for a new digital wallet with a very limited feature set. Consumer interest in this product area is high and accelerating.
The commercial development of new digital currencies like Bitcoin has continued despite extreme price volatility. Industry leaders from companies like PayPal have acknowledged the value and viability of the new currency. At the same time mainstream venture capital firms like Andreesen Horowitz have stepped up their efforts to find "major bets" to make in this new market.
These industry developments increase our confidence and enthusiasm for the NXT-ID (NXTD) Wocket™ both as a digital wallet and a potential secure storage option for Bitcoins. As we outline in our note, the Wocket has a much more robust design in terms of security and usability.
We see the following as key advantages for the NXT-ID Wocket:
Security: Using a secure chip the Wocket can store 100s of cards and digital records. Authentication is multi-factor and includes biometrics. Cards go into the Wocket directly without involving unsecure intermediate steps.
Usability: The Wocket includes an ultra-lower power touchscreen display in addition to the dynamic magnetic stripe as both a UI and QR-code mechanism. A combination of power management, in-wallet charging and standard battery means that consumers won't have to fear a "dead wallet."
Flexibility: Rather than being tied to a phone or platform the Wocket can be paired with any device either locally or in the cloud when secure protocols are available. This dynamic pairing is a key feature of the NXT-ID approach and is a powerful and highly differentiated aspect of their technology.
NXT-ID is an early stage technology company going after a large market. Based on initial traction and a conservative intrinsic valuation (IV) model show a fair value of $11/share we see the company continuing to benefit from intensive investor attention to this space.

Tech Alert: The Wocket and COIN Set the Stage for Changing Your Wallet as You Know It; CEOs of NXT-ID, Inc (NXTD) and COIN Discuss How all Your Credit Cards Can Be Managed in One Product

Point Roberts, WA, NEW YORK, NY - December 9, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor news and research portal specializing in leading sectors including biometrics and mobile technology issues an exclusive interview with Mr. Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc (OTCQB: NXTD) and Mr. Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin. The CEOs discuss their innovative payment technologies coming to market in 2014.

Each company has a different approach, technology base, product benefits and security features but both have the same goal; to make it simpler, easier and more secure for consumers to manage their credit cards.
As the two companies prepare for their roll-out in 2014, Investorideas interviews both CEOs to give consumers insight as to what will differentiate the products to the end user.
NXT-ID, Inc’s, The Wocket™ contains a single secure smart card that can hold up to 100 cards and is designed to replace all the cards in your wallet. The Wocket™ works anywhere that credit cards are accepted and can only be used with your biometric or touch screen authentication. The Wocket™ is scheduled to come to market in the first quarter of 2014.
COIN, a company that puts eight credit cards in one COIN is taking pre- orders from consumers for delivery in the summer in 2014. Management believes believe Coin is a substantial improvement on how consumers interact with, and use cards that have a magnetic stripe.
NXT-ID, Inc Interview:
Q: Investorideas.com
What is the idea behind the wocket™?
A: Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc
The wocket™ is our interpretation of everything a modern wallet should be. It has a single reprogrammable credit card within the wocket to allow secure payments to be made in a traditional manner but the wocket has other functionality too and will be able to display identification as well as hold cash just like a traditional wallet.
Q: Investorideas.com
What is the battery life of the smart card in the wocket?
A: Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc
The smart card in the wocket is automatically recharged when it is in the wocket so it will never run out of juice! The wocket uses two CR batteries that need to be replaced every 2 to 4 years depending on frequency of use but they are inexpensive and widely available.
Q: Investorideas.com
Does the phone need to be near for the wocket to work?
A: Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc
No. The wocket does not depend on a phone to work. In fact no confidential information in the wocket is ever passed through a phone or the internet. It is an important security feature.
Q: Investorideas.com
What security features does the wocket have?
A: Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc
In order to access the wocket for use, the user must authenticate themselves through the use of a multi-factor voice biometric algorithm or through a unique identifier on the touch screen. As we have previously stated, no confidential information in the wocket is ever passed through a phone. The confidential card information is loaded directly on to the wocket through a scanner that has an input directly into the wocket. In addition after the card is used, the wocket zeroizes the magnetic strip meaning no information is retained on the card. If the card is lost there is no useful information on it. In fact purchasers can subscribe to an insurance plan with us so that if their card is lost we will replace it overnight and they can continue life as normal within 24 hrs.
Q: Investorideas.com
What features does the wocket offer other than making credit card payments?
A: Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID, Inc
Any card with a magnetic stripe can be loaded on the wocket so debit cards, gas cards, supermarket cards and other loyalty cards can all be used. The wocket can also display barcodes and identity cards. The fact that the wocket is a smart wallet also means that future editions will be able to make touchless payments, often known as “touch and go”, and NFC capability means that you could even use it at to make EZ-pass payments while you are driving. Of course you will also be able to hold cash in your wocket as well.
COIN Interview:
Q: Investorideas.com
I had read that the battery life of COIN is 2 years; is that correct? And if so what kind of usage is that based on in testing?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
COIN’s battery life is 2 years under normal usage. Normal usage is 10 swipes per day.
Q: Investorideas.com
What happens if the phone battery dies? does it still work?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
Coin uses the concept of a leash, when the phone battery dies, the leash breaks and Coin locks down and disables itself. Once this happens, users can manually unlock Coin using a single button passcode (similar to a morse code) and continue to use their Coin without their phone.
Q: Investorideas.com
How do they get the credit info onto the phone app? How is it downloaded?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
Credit card info is downloaded to your phone app by first taking a picture of the front and back of your card, answering personal security questions and finally through a card reader dongle attached to your phone.
Q: Investorideas.com
Have you tested the magnetic stripe with all kinds of payment cards? And can you say which ones?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
We have proven and tested the magnetic stripe with all kinds of payment cards such as Visa, MasterCard, and AMEX just to name a few, as well as other magnetic striped cards like loyalty cards, gift cards, and membership cards.
Q: Investorideas.com
Does the phone need to be near for COIN to work?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
( as per question 2) Coin uses the concept of a leash, when the phone battery dies, the leash breaks and Coin locks down and disables itself. Once this happens, users can manually unlock Coin using a single button passcode (similar to a morse code) and continue to use their Coin without their phone.
Q: Investorideas.com What stops someone that gets a hold of your COIN, from accessing all 8 cards you may have downloaded? For example what happens if it falls in the hands of either a customer service person or if you loose it or someone steals it?
A: Kanishk Parashar, CEO of Coin
When you give your COIN to a customer service person or waiter, you can lock the card to avoid unwanted swipes from occurring. Additionally COIN will keep track of the number of times it is swiped and will alert you when actions are suspicious. When your COIN is lost or stolen, it will be disabled and inoperable as soon as it breaks connectivity with your mobile phone and will not function until it is manually enabled or reconnected to your phone.

Biometric Stock Alert: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) Announces Product Features for Next Generation Electronic Wallet, "The Wocket(TM)"

SHELTON, CT - December 3, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, today announced features of its next generation wallet, The Wocket™, scheduled for launch for the first quarter of 2014.

The Wocket™ is designed to replace all the cards in your wallet with a single, secure smart card. The Wocket™ works anywhere that credit cards are accepted and can only be used with your biometric or touch screen authentication.
The world of wallets is about to change with new and exciting technologies making payments easier than ever. However, most credit card holders are understandably reluctant to use their smartphone for transactions -- this is due to a variety of reasons including:
  • Limited battery life
  • Dependency on wireless network coverage
  • Well publicized security threats
Rather than depending on a smartphone for transactions, NXT-ID has developed a truly next generation electronic wallet.
This unique technology takes a very different approach: Instead of replacing the wallet, NXT-ID is improving it. The Company's innovative Wocket™ replaces all the cards in your wallet with one single re-programmable card that supports most payment methods currently available at a Point-of-Sale (POS) at retailers around the world (magnetic stripe, NFC and barcode)... all within a secure biometric vault.
Access your Wocket™ with security on the touch screen or through voice authentication biometrics and select which card you wish to use; now use that card to substitute any card in your wallet. What's more, no personal information is retained on the magnetic stripe so the risk of fraud is greatly reduced.
Now you can bring the wallet you know and love into the future with the Wocket™ and have advanced secure electronic wallet technology from NXT-ID.
Availability:
NXT-ID will be launching the Wocket in the first quarter of 2014.
Product Features and Benefits
  • Card reader plugs in directly to Wocket
  • Card information is erased after every transaction
  • Does not require phone
  • Number of cards- Approximately 100 cards, records, coupons, etc.
  • Authentication - Multi-factor (user configurable) Dynamic Pairing of voice and word

Its dynamically programmable magnetic stripe, NXTCard can replace up to 100 cards and can include medical records, ID, coupons etc. that are currently kept in a wallet, with one single secure card.
Authenticated users select payment information, via touch display or voice command and use the NXTCard as they would any other magnetic stripe credit or debit card.
The Company just reported it successfully ported its MobileBio Voicematch™ algorithm to The Wocket™. Voicematch™ is a multi-factor biometric technology that can be programmed to match both the user's voice and a specific word of choice.
"We are very excited to see consumers embracing the idea of a new simpler form of payment technology, based on the reaction to the crowd funding start up COIN over the past few days. It shows there is a demand and a desire to replace the current method of carrying around multiple credit cards in a wallet," said Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, Inc.
"We have been working on The Wocket for over two years now and have designed a product that not only replaces multiple magnetic stripe cards but also introduces a high level of security and functionality while doing so. The Wocket is a replacement for the wallet and will serve as a platform for future innovation. It can read QR codes and barcodes and will be NFC capable allowing for the next generation of contactless payments as well as the traditional magnetic stripe contact method. Very importantly, sensitive user information is directly loaded on to the Wocket without having to pass through or be stored on potentially unsecure platforms such as smartphones or web based services. With our product launch anticipated for the first quarter next year, we will be showcasing The Wocket™ developments and updates on www.thewocket.com over the coming months. We believe consumers will be as excited as we are about The Wocket™."

The space is getting a lot of buzz following the launch and media campaign of start- up company COIN, which is bringing its product to consumers for the summer of 2014.
According to COIN's website, Coin is a connected device that can hold and behave like the cards you already carry. Coin works with your debit cards, credit cards, gift cards, loyalty cards and membership cards. Instead of carrying several cards you carry one Coin. Multiple accounts and information all in one place. The mobile app will allow you to add, manage and sync the cards that you choose to store on your Coin. The process of adding card information to the mobile app is very simple and is done by taking a picture or two and swiping your Coin through a small device we provide you with. Each Coin costs $100. For early adopters there is a very limited quantity that can be purchased for $50.
"The consumer gets to keep their habits and the merchants can keep their habits," said Kanishk Parashar, Coin's chief executive, in an interview with the Wall street Journal.

Excerpt from SoundView Research Report on The Wocket™:
The Wocket has a target market of nearly $1B in the U.S. alone. The opportunity will expand across multiple segments, given that the company's products target consumers, enterprise and government agencies in the U.S. and overseas.
NXT-ID's Wocket product is the next generation of secure wallets designed to function anywhere credit cards are accepted. There are close to 200 million credit card holders in the U.S. alone and tens of millions more overseas. The average credit card holder today has 3.5 cards. Credit cards are associated with more than $2.5 trillion in transactions a year and are accepted at more than 24 mil-lion locations in more than 200 countries and territories.
Fraud is a key concern of credit card users. There is growing demand for solutions that prevent or substantially curtail the incidence of credit card fraud. The Wocket has been designed to offer consumers an affordable, mobile, biometrically secured device that has security features and functionality exceeding anything on the marketplace today. In addition, NXT-ID is planning on offering users an inexpensive monthly insurance plan for frequent credit card users that seek even greater peace of mind.
The Wocket will also be designed to carry grocery cards, gas cards and other retail store cards that have become widespread, thus expanding its functionality to users beyond credit cards.
The Wocket is being designed to exploit Near Field Communications (NFC) technology as a way to transmit secure information over mobile devices. NFC is an emerging technology that has yet to take off, but there certainly seems to be a great deal of potential for the technology in the years ahead. We have seen analyst estimates of global, consumer financial sales transactions via NFC mobile-enabled devices growing to $50 billion by 2014. Total e-commerce sales worldwide today exceed $1 trillion, with an expected increase in market penetration of NFC-related mobile transactions in the future.
The report also covers the full MobileBio™ suite of products including facial recognition and voice recognition.

Biometric Stock Alert: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB:NXTD) Reports Successful Application of MobileBio Voicematch(TM) Biometric Technology to Next Generation Digital Wallet, the Wocket(TM)

SHELTON, CT - November 14, 2013 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometrics company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announced today that it has successfully ported its MobileBio Voicematch™ algorithm to its widely anticipated next generation payment and identity product -- the Wocket™.

The Wocket™ is a new class of biometrically secure mobile devices designed to bring the traditional wallet into the 21st century by providing the functionality of a wallet and incorporating a touch screen and a single dynamically programmable card to use for credit, debit and any other magnetic stripe functions.
"We are pleased we have surpassed this important milestone in the development of the Wocket™," says Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID. "Authenticating users with our Voicematch™ speaker plus command recognition algorithm is a very convenient and user friendly way to use the Wocket™ while improving security over traditional authentication methods."
Voicematch™ is a key multi-factor biometric technology and a major building block of NXT-IDs MobileBio mobile and wearable identity technologies that bring full control and protection of private data to authenticated owners of the data.
"We are pleased with the continued development of the Wocket™," says David Tunnell, CTO of NXT-ID. "Our approach eliminates the need for passwords by authenticating identity in a natural way for users. With Voicematch™, users can simply ask for a user-defined name of a card and the Wocket™ then automatically programs the NXTCard with the card of their choice."
The company reported that it had successfully developed its Voicematch™ algorithm on November 4th, which was ahead of schedule. The multi-platform technology will run on mobile platforms such as Android and iOS, as well as laptops and desktops.
The company will be issuing an update and video of successful demonstrations of its Voicematch™ algorithm technology on Smartphone platforms in the near future.
