How NFC cards work
First things first, let's explain NFC cards and how it helps sharing for digital information in real life, in person.
What is an NFC card?
NFC is bridging the gap between both the physical and digital worlds. It stands for Near Field Communication. It is the same technology you use whenever you tap your phone on a device at the store for payment services like Apple Pay, Google Wallet, or when you use public transport cards, or even when you use Nintendo's Animal Crossing Amiibo cards etc...
NFC is the fastest growing method of wireless data transfer. It can detect and enable close proximity communication between two devices, or in our case, between a phone and your BLK CARDS.
It doesn't need any Internet connections or Bluetooth and it is automatic. And there is no need for any Apps to read the NFC card, as they work on any NFC-enable smartphone (both Android and iphones).
Why do I need it?
Have you ever had to share a link with someone you just met? Of course, we all have. But was it easy?
First, you had to add them to your contacts, or exchange details in some way. And there was probably some spelling out names, social media usernames, phone numbers, or email addresses. In reality, all you wanted to do was to send them a link.
But now, imagine being able to share a link with anyone you meet in person for the first time, in seconds. No need to add them as a contact or exchange numbers. they don't need to have any special App either.
With BLK CARDS you can share any URL instantly, just like that, with a simple touch of your NFC card with their phone.

You link will open directly too.
