Singaporeans get hard token baked into credit card


An another way

I somehow prefer the mobile way - as in PKI on a SIM. It seems to work for the Finns etc just fine.

True separation from any financial platform, to provide universal tools for any type of transaction.

YMMV, though.

Yes, it will be safe

Safe... As were the "posture" pictures of a number of American students.

I find it very hard to comprehend why so few people understand that any collected data sets will be used in negative contexts later. Later might be minutes or decades, but the end result would always be the same.

Hail to the the free countries of the world: Uganda, Russia, Chile... Because they can't even if they wanted. Even in Russia it would be very easy to stay below the e-intel radar for any normal person.
