you may not like it, but this is what peak fintech looks like.
figured y’all might be interested in this one, and this means i finally have a new conversation starter for the times i don’t want to talk about the colour of my monzo card with a stranger lmao
so the card itself has one real chip and 19 decoy chips. in normal room lighting, it’s hard to tell the real chip apart at some angles:
at first, i was a bit annoyed that one chip has a slightly different texture and light reflection from the other chips, but now that i’ve had it for an hour, i’m honestly quite glad that i can tell the real chip apart from the others.
it’s probably more obvious from another angle (see top right-most of card):
it’s US only and there may still be some left, here’s a link to get one if you got a $cashtag. it’s $35 and proceeds go to black trans femme in the arts, g.l.i.t.s, and emergency release fund:
