A Resident of the Netherlands Voluntarily Injected a Bitcoin Wallet into Himself

There appeared an innovator in the Netherlands who implanted a Bitcoin wallet into his own hand. The enthusiast turned out to be the marketing manager of the Bitcoin-ATM company Martin Wismeyer, and the device which stores the Bitcoins is the NFC chip.

This is not the first chip implanted in Wismeyer’s body. The history and purpose of the previous ones were not disclosed, but the fact that he wanted to use innovative technologies to store digital currency is gladly commented on by him. This chip stores an access password, which is almost impossible to hack. Moreover, it is much more convenient to pay for goods and services in this way. Roughly speaking, the purchases are carried out “with one stroke of the hand”.

The manager, notes that the desire to implant the chip did not appear spontaneously. This idea came to his mind back in 2010, as soon as he started buying BTC.

“I can safely say that most of the bitcoins, more than 80%, I lost because of hacking, theft and other problems. If I had a chip in 2010, I would probably be very rich now,” he said.

The NFC chip is the size of a rice grain. It is implanted between the index finger and the thumb. The implantation of microscopic technology took only a few seconds and was pretty much as painful as the regular IV. The healing process will take two weeks, but the chip itself will be usable in three days.

Wismeyer notes that for the sake of his own security he will not store a large amount of money in the chip, but only so much as to literally have enough for coffee or beer.

We would like to remind you that the world’s first Bitcoin transaction was made through a microchip built into the hand in 2015. The Swiss DigitasLBi software developer Patrick Lanheed and his colleague Huangho Tara from thecompany Arduino successfully produced a bio-payment in BTC. In order to do this, the developers used a microchip, which is capable of storing 888 bytes of data.

Mass Media: ICO Projects Will Be Soon Standardized in Russia

The Russian Association of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain (RACIB) launched the development of a standard for the regulation of ICO-projects, the newspaper Izvestia reports.

The standard will cover such criteria as: authenticity of information about projects and team, business plan and minimum viability of the product. At the same time, the main product will be published on the web so that everyone can get to know it.

It is noted that standardization does not depend and is not regulated at the legislative level. It will be a component of market self-regulation.

The RAKIB Committee will conduct an examination of new ICO projects for compliance with standardization.

We would like to remind you that the participation of unqualified investors in the ICO will be limited by the Bank of Russia.
