NXT-ID Inc Starting 2016 Off Strong January 27, 2016 by

2016 is shaping up to be a good one for NXT-ID Inc (NASDAQ:NXTD). After a disappointing 2015, the company looks to have things lined up to sell more Wockets than many are expecting. For those that haven’t gotten into NXTD yet, it’s a stock worth having a closer look at.
The excitement this year started off right after the New Year when NXT-ID signed a deal with WorldVentures, a privately held leading direct seller of vacation and entertainment club memberships and Inc. 5000 fastest-growing company. The agreement calls for WorldVentures to make a strategic investment of $2 million in Nxt-ID to develop a proprietary new wireless smart card for its members—numbering in the several hundreds of thousands worldwide—based on Nxt-ID’s Wocket, a unique smart wallet that serves to securely store all credit cards. The smart card will be customized with additional technologies and wireless features, such as the ability…

Wallets Get Smart With Wocket By on 01/06/2016
[CES 2016] Even wallets would like to get smarter this year – and the Wocket looks to be the first in potentially many devices of a similar genre down the road. The Wocket smart wallet, as it is called, happens to be a physical wallet, albeit with a difference. It will not bend as easily as your regular leather or PVC wallet due to the fact that it has electronic components within and a non-bendable display, so for those who love to place their wallets in their tight back pockets, you might want to think twice. Basically, you key in your credit card, ATM and debit card details into the Wocket, and you no longer need to physically tote those cards around no more. With a capacity to store up to 10,000 card information within, it can be said to be a wallet that lasts a lifetime. Who has 10,000 credit, debit and ATM cards anyway?
Setting it up is a snap – just follow the instructions on the screen, and you should not h…
