Episode 5: Tangem

Tangem is a new smart card technology based on a breakthrough in microelectronics achieved in 2017. The technology allows to store and carry cryptocurrencies on physical plastic cards with a chip and NFC antenna inside.

Tangem Notes are similar to banknotes, like $100 USD or $100 SGD or €100 EUR, but instead, they carry a fixed amount of cryptocurrency, like ฿0.01 BTC or Ξ0.5 ETH — on a special chip inside, called a «Secure Element».

As with traditional banknotes, Tangem Notes are not controlled in any way by their manufacturer and are completely and forever under the full control of whoever holds them physically.

Tangem Notes are the easiest and most secure way to acquire, secure, store, and transfer cryptocurrency.
