SmartMetric Will Be Exhibiting Its Leading Biometric Protected Payments Card at the Smart Card Alliance Payments Summit on April 4-7, 2016

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - March 08, 2016) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric will be exhibiting its cutting edge biometric safe payments card at the prestigious Smart Card Alliance Payments Summit being held in Orlando, Florida from April 4 to 7, 2016. On Wednesday, April 6 at 9am the company will be presenting a discussion of its biometric fingerprint activated card and its use in the payments industry.

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.

We are thankful to be presenting our new fingerprint activated EMV chip (smartcard) technology at this Smart Card Alliance event since it is the leading industry body for the smart card industry 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 a fully functional fingerprint reader inside an EMV smart card. The card user rolls their finger across a thin sensor on the card's surface which is used to read the person's 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.
