So then… The time has come, Monzo are tweaking their card slightly! Not the colour (woohoo ) but the size & style of the chip on the front. (That old school thing for chip&pin )
Over in Slack today, it was announced that the onboard chip / storage / logic-bits were being updated
yep new cards will be gradually switching over to the new smaller contact plates
We’re all used to the current card design, more specifically that futuristic looking chip!
However the Joint Account card brought with it a newer, smaller chip…
I know how I feel already, I’m all for newer features & card internals - Monzo confirmed that it would be ‘better’ which is always good … More specifically:
Mostly just a hardware refresh. We made one tiny tweak to hopefully improve chip acceptance for certain non-compliant terminals in South Korea.
Yay for improvements!
But sad about the small contact pads (for some arbitrary reason ) I just reckon it looks plain and boring, less flashy than I’ve come to ‘expect’ from Monzo
What do you think though?
- I love the new, smaller, chip!
- I hate the new, smaller, chip!
- I don’t care
