Taking the cold storage of a Bitcoin wallet a step further, the Dutch Bitcoin entrepreneur and founder of Mr. Bitcoin, Martijn Wismeijer implanted one NFC chip into each his hands.
The idea behind a Bitcoin wallet cold storage is keeping your Bitcoins offline, on an encrypted device securing it further against theft.
This is usually done on an USB-stick or even a piece of paper, but not in Wismeijer‘s case.
He is using an “RFC Type 2 compliant NTAG216 RFI chipset” which is embedded in a tiny glass capsule, 2 by 12 millimeters, and carries 880 bytes of data, which is more than sufficient for a cold storage wallet, injected into the tissue in his hand between the thumb and the index finger.
“I use it for cold storage, but it’s not cold because it’s 37 degrees Celsius inside my body!” Wismeijer jokingly told ArsTechnica.
The NFC chip was bought with a pre-loaded syringe from DangerousThings.com and injected at a piercing studio after his own doctor understandably denied his request of inserting it into his body.
He commented that while it hurts more than your regular injection, there is no fear of infection as the hole from the injection has healed, but the chip is still noticeable in the tissue.
Even when he scans them he feels no difference, as the chip themselves does not generate any heat.
The reason for doing the deed was, according to Wismeijer, to serve his company, Mr Bitcoin, which is setting up their own Bitcoin ATMs in the Netherlands and Belgium.
Where his private key, with the ones from other colleagues, is used to unlock the company’s Bitcoin wallet when they need to transfer funds in and out of the cold storage.
Eventually Wismeijer envisions using his NFC chips for such things as locking and unlocking his NFC-enabled doors at home.

In an era where most companies look to consolidate themselves and/or take other other companies, Sky has done both, in a move that unites Sky with Sky and Sky for one giant Sky.
More specifically, it is the British ‘BSkyB’ who are making the moves, taking over Sky Italia and taking on a controlling stake in Sky Deutschland for a unified company, with their first act after doing so being to remove the two Bs from their official name for the first time in 24 years of operation.
A move planned in July but delayed due to pan-continental legal problems, the company will now officially run under the overall guise of Sky, “Europe’s largest entertainment company”.
Taking over primary running operations from 21st Century Fox (who now have a 39.1% stake in the merged company), it is unclear as to whether satellite TV subscribers in those markets will see any changes such as collaborated or shared content, but it is believed that the sharing of executives and ideas will result in the ‘accelerated technological innovation‘ for the group as a whole.
James Murdoch, 21st Century Fox’s ‘co-chief operating officer’ summarised of the deal: “We have always believed that a combination of the European Skys would create enormous benefits for the combined business and for our shareholders. Ultimately, a pan-European Sky is good for customers, who will benefit from the accelerated technological innovation and enhanced customer experience made possible by a fully integrated business.”
Now claiming a total customer base of over 20 million across UK, Ireland (UK), Germany, Austria (Deutschland), and Italy (Italia) rather than ‘x million’ in an individual market, will Sky’s unified front see them build an even greater presence in their fully-controlled markets in Europe? Amongst other operations, for complete self-control, they still need to take Brasil, México, New Zealand…
