gaining greater acceptance in today's contactless society. Like
many technologies, NFC has been developed over many years and used
successfully in many industries especially public transportation.
However, its useability and effectiveness has been greatly
increased in the past few quarters and is rapidly moving toward
mass adoption in conjunction with phone-based mobile wallets. In
addition to supporting payments, the Apple Pay and Google Pay
systems also support loyalty, memberships, and other identification
