If your wallet is overflowing with credit cards, you’ll want to check out a new startup called Coin. While many companies are working on new ways for us to spend money, Coin decided to come up with a better credit card. Coin’s card stores information from your other credit cards so it can be used in place of them and lighten up your wallet. Coin looks and acts like a regular credit card and gives you access to multiple accounts through the card itself after you load information about your existing cards onto your smartphone, which then sends the info to Coin via Bluetooth. You may feel nervous about loading all your credit card info into one place, but Coin locks for security if strays too far from your phone. Coin’s backed by a bunch of investors but is looking for more money through crowdfunding. You can pre-order Coin now for $50, or wait until it launches in the middle of next year and snag it for $100.
