Digital Bank Card Replacement Coin Finally Starts Shipping

As Cheech Marin says in Ghostbusters 2, “better late than never.” Coin, the digital all-in-one bank card replacement that was announced over a year ago, is finally shipping to at least some of those who initially backed the project. Multiple backers have received shipping numbers in their email and at least one guy on Twitter has actually received the card.

Coin was originally scheduled to begin shipping in Summer 2014, so while they’re late, they’re not extraordinarily late. International customers, however, are now having to wait until Spring 2015. So okay, those ones are pretty late. The team at Coin hasn’t actually announced anything or commented on the cards going out; the news comes from several Twitter posts from the backers of the product. Understandably, those who received tracking numbers are less excited and more simply relieved that they weren’t swindled.

If you forgot about Coin, you’re forgiven, especially since the announcement of Plastc last month might have you confused. Plastc does virtually the same thing as Coin and is scheduled to arrive in Summer 2015, so it looks like the two products get to battle it out for our amusement. Or, you know, they can just co-exist.

Hopefully Plastc will ship on time and not experience the same delays that plagued Coin.
