SmartMetric Presenting Its Biometric Protected Payments Card at the Leading Payments Industry Conference Called the Smart Card Alliance Payments Summit on April 4-7, 2016

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - February 05, 2016) -  SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) SmartMetric has been invited to be a speaker [or presenter] at the prestigious Smart Card Alliance Payments Summit in Orlando, Florida Wednesday, April 6 at 9am.

The Payments Summit is the premier industry event covering all things payments, including FinTech, EMV chip technology, mobile wallets, NFC, contactless, open transit systems and more. Attend the 9th annual Summit and get the latest on all of these exciting technologies and the many business opportunities they can unlock.

We are thankful to be presenting our new fingerprint activated EMV chip (smartcard) technology at this Smart Card Alliance event since it is the recognized leading industry body for the smart card including payments chip card industry. While SmartMetric has been presenting its advanced biometric activated card to select financial institutions internationally this will be our first official unveiling of our card to the industry and the media, said SmartMetric's President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric's biometric payments card has achieved an incredible reduction in microelectronics to fit an fully functional fingerprint reader inside an EMV smart card. The card user roles their finger across a thin sensor on the cards surface which is used to read the persons fingerprint and match it with their fingerprint already stored inside the card. Following a successful fingerprint match processed by the SmartMetric miniature fingerprint scanner inside the card the card is turned on allowing it to be inserted inside a credit card reader or ATM machine. The fingerprint scanning takes less than 0.25 seconds making it even faster as well as being more secure than typing in PIN's etc.

About SmartMetric: SmartMetric has created a safer and better user validation and identification technology for payment and identity cards using a person's individual and unique biometrics to validate and identify the card user. The company has created a super miniature fully functional powerful fingerprint scanner that fits inside a payments card as well as identity and secure log on cards. Using an internal Cortex processor built in the card the SmartMetric biometric card scans, reads and matches a person's fingerprint in less than 0.25 seconds. The cards internal scanner is powered by a rechargeable battery developed by SmartMetric and also embedded inside the payments and identity card. SmartMetric is a publicly traded fully reporting company on the United States OTCQB exchange.
