First up, yay for Monzo making dealing with a mislaid card ridiculously easy; couldn’t find it on Monday morning, froze it via the app; wasn’t where I thought it might be so ordered a new card on Tuesday and it arrived Weds - no complaints there AT ALL.
But it did get me wondering how hard it might be to incorporate the sort of technology that Find My Phone, Tile etc uses in a bank card. After all, if you’re rethinking banking, why not rethink cards? If I could have used the app to locate my card, I wouldn’t have had to order a new one.
Is this type of tech prohibitively expensive? Assume like all this stuff it will get cheaper/smaller etc with time
