Boomer Times Gets to Know NXT-ID’s (OTCQB: NXTD) Next Generation Wocket Smart Wallet; Practical, Secure and Easy to Use

Breaking Tech News: Boomer Times Gets to Know NXT-ID’s (OTCQB: NXTD) Next Generation Wocket Smart Wallet; Practical, Secure and Easy to Use

“We do recognize that some members of the older generation are the ones most concerned with identity theft”-   CEO Gino Pereira

July 24, 2014, Shelton, CT- (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID, Inc., (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announces its next generation smart wallet, Wocket™, was recently the topic of an interview on Boomer Times. Host Anita Finley interviewed Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID, on July 9th for over thirty minutes.

Mr. Gino Pereira explains how the Wocket will replace old bulky wallets full of credit cards and walks host Anita Finley through the step-by-step process of using a Wocket and its biometrically secure card, replacing a traditional credit card. 

Gino tells Anita that 44% of known causes of identity theft can be traced back to stolen wallets. He goes on to share that one in ten consumers have been a victim of identity theft and how the biometric security features of the Wocket can prevent future abuse.   

When Anita asks if a Wocket is for men or women he responds, “It’s for everybody who wants something new and techy. It’s cool but it’s also very practical and helps protect your identity, keeping it in your own personal vault. “

“The young kids of course will love it but it takes us older people a little bit longer to figure out” says Host
Anita Finley.

In terms of the boomer generation Gino notes the Wocket is very simple to use. “We do recognize that some members of the older generation are the ones most concerned with identity theft. They may only have a couple of credit cards or debit cards but it is great value to protect them.

Literally within a minute of reading instructions they can get two or three cards loaded on their Wocket and have it set up and ready to go.”

The Wocket is currently available for advance orders at www.wocketwallet.com and shipments are scheduled to begin in September 2014.

The Boomer Times & Senior Life uses print and radio to reach over 230,000 active, affluent people. Boomer Times followers are interested in the healthy, exciting life that takes place in all of South Florida's communities.  http://www.babyboomers-seniors.com/

Breaking Tech News: Analyst Update; NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) Wocket Launches into Waiting Market

BOSTON - June 26, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) SoundView Technology Group releases the recent research update on NXT-ID Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) and its smart wallet, Wocket™.

Recent developments following the June 11th update include the Company has filed for a NASDAQ application and appointed a new independent Board member to satisfy that requirement for listing.
Wocket Launches into Waiting Market
Kris Tuttle & Stephen Waite – June 11, 2014
Summary: The Wocket™ was officially launched on May 28th at the Plaza Hotel in NYC. All the feedback we received from attending suggests that consumers who get a chance to see and understand it, immediately want one. It's a viable way to deliver something consumers can use as a digital wallet that is secure, private, and able to handle all their payment, identification, and loyalty needs. The Wocket is really a wallet replacement, and the functional demonstration worked very well. We'll be monitoring the progress and consumer reaction very closely over the next few months with an eye to validating our IV model, which currently suggests a stock value of $11.70/share. We have also extended our forecast to arrive at a projected IV in 2015 of $20.55.
Additional Details: As a prelude to what will be a more active marketing phase, the event included attendance by the media, investors, analysts, and Miss Universe 2012, which added a special level of energy and media attention.
In addition to elaborating on the key features, there was a live demonstration of using the Wocket to do a typical transaction by swiping the card, just as one does with a standard plastic debit or credit card.
Online preorders are available with first units shipping to consumers in September at a price of $149.99, plus some optional services for customers that require additional protection.
Wocket is NXT-ID's replacement for a conventional wallet. The heart of it is the device itself which securely stores cards digitally – that covers virtually all of the important cards consumers carry in a wallet today, including credit, debit, ATM, loyalty, gift, ID, membership, insurance, medical information, and coupons. Wocket locks a user's private information in an electronic "vault" where only an authenticated owner can authorize access to the data. The case provides some space for cash and a driver's license.
As concerns continue to mount in the U.S. and around the world about identity theft and data hacking, the timing of the launch of the Wocket helps NXT-ID channel media attention into their marketing strategy. The Wocket addresses the important issues not adequately addressed currently by smart phones and other mobile devices.
The biggest advantages are in authentication and security. The Wocket uses biometric technology to provide identity protection and security. All information used with the Wocket is encrypted by the owner's personal biometric stamp. NXT-ID is a pioneer in biometric technology, and the Wocket incorporates some of the most advanced biometric technology on the market (see our report, "Mobile Security Beyond the Password", for an in depth discussion of the technology). The device protects whatever information is stored in it so that it cannot be released to any other individual or device without the user's permission.
All payment cards and other dynamic stripe cards are swiped directly into the Wocket during the initial set-up process. Barcodes and text, such as voter's registration, loyalty and/or membership cards, may all be scanned or entered into the Wocket. All information is encrypted by the owner's personal biometric stamp and can be accessed via a low power touch screen or optionally, a voice command.
Information is placed on a tamper-proof encrypted chip inside the Wocket rather than on anywhere in the cloud. Any attempt to access the encrypted chip will result in destroying any information stored on it.
If a Wocket or Wocket card is stolen, the company can guarantee that the Wocket is worthless to anyone besides its owner. The security technology incorporated by the Wocket zeroes out any relevant information on the card dynamically after each use. Hence, the card used with the Wocket becomes a blank piece of plastic to a thief. For added peace of mind, NXT-ID will be offering customers an insurance plan for stolen, misplaced, or lost Wockets.
The Wocket can securely store up to 10,000 items including – debit/credit/loyalty/gift cards, health information, coupons, and miscellaneous records.
Battery life is expected to be one year or more, depending on frequency of use. A light will appear on the device weeks before the battery is due for replacement, so users can replace the conventional lithium ion battery that is widely available at a variety of retail stores around the world.
NXT-ID has an FAQ section on the Wocket website that addresses key questions and issues associated with the device (see: http://wocketwallet.com).
NXT-ID has started taking pre-orders for the Wocket on their website, with plans to ship the first devices in September. Unlike many digital devices on the market today, the Wocket is being manufactured in America. NXT-ID is planning a significant promotional campaign this summer to increase customer awareness and drive more pre-sales.
Sales Projections and Intrinsic Valuation: Over the past year we've seen plenty of data showing that there is strong desire for a device like the Wocket. Consumers are still waiting for an actual product to buy and use. Initial sales volumes will depend on initial orders, and initially, on the ability of NXT-ID to ramp production and manage some longer lead time components.
After a review of our current projections and intrinsic valuation (IV) model, we don't see anything that needs to be changed. However, extending the projections and model out an additional year allows us to publish a 2015 IV estimate of $20.55.
Our current estimate for sales in 2014 is 40K units, which grow fast in later years to reach nearly 1M units in 2018 and 1.5M units in 2019. These unit projections are still very low considering the small penetration rate needed to generate those numbers. If the Wocket is successful, unit growth can be much faster. Many investors were surprised by how quickly new categories like the iPad reached large numbers of units after consumer adoption. We won't have any real visibility on these longer term projections until 2015, but have a credible working forecast to start with.
Although digital currencies are not the initial focus for the Wocket, we were impressed with the figures showing consumer adoption of bitcoin wallets grew from under 500K to over 5M in one year!
Conclusion: The official launch of the Wocket has certainly increased our confidence in the IV model shown below. As consumers begin to use the device in the real world, we'll know much more.
There's huge demand to use digital payments and have a secure digital wallet that is easy to use and genuinely safe. Consumers are nearly clamoring for it. Although other companies have done Kickstarter campaigns and showed slick videos, the NXT-ID Wocket will be helping to define this market in the next few months.
The stock has been holding steady after a major post-IPO run, but our IV clearly shows there is far more to go if the Wocket is delivered on time and consumers have a good experience with it.

President and CEO of UMeWorld (UMEWF) Discusses Their Online Video Platform in China and Recent SI Partnership with China Mobile (CHL)

New York, NY - Point Roberts, WA - June 23, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including tech issues an exclusive Q&A with Mr. Michael Lee, President and CEO of UMeWorld(OTC: UMEWF). Mr. Lee discusses the company’s emerging online user generated video platform in China and the recent announcement of its partnership with China Mobile Limited (NYSE:CHL), (HKEx Stock Code: 00941).

Q: Investorideas.com
For readers that don’t know your company, can you give a brief overview of the divisions and your current focus?
A: President and CEO Michael Lee
UMeWorld is an online video and education internet company in China. Currently, UMeWorld operates UMeLook.com, an online video platform focused on bringing foreign video content to China and UMFun.com, an online K-12 adaptive learning education platform which provides learning & educational assessment services for K-12 students. Our mission is to facilitate interaction between people -"You" and "Me," through our UMeLook and UMFun online platforms-and drive synergies between the two operating segments.
Q: Investorideas.com
You just announced an SI partnership withChina Mobile Limited’s educational platform. Can you explain how that will unfold and what is the significance * to your company?
A: President and CEO Michael Lee
This is a major milestone and game-changing event for us. An SI (Service Integrator) partnership such as this, is at the highest level of collaboration for value added services. As such, it is a very strong endorsement for our company. It is a testament to our competence and a recognition of the quality of our products. China Mobile is the world’s largest mobile services provider by subscriber base, serving over 760 million customers. This SI partnership accelerates our market penetration and will provide a substantial revenue stream for our company in 2015 and beyond. We are now working diligently with China Mobile to bring UMFun to its’ millions of customers.  
Q: Investorideas.com
With your online video content platform and educational divisions, which areas do you see the most significance in long term growth and why?
A: President and CEO Michael Lee
I believe both divisions are well positioned for long term growth and our objective is to drive synergies between the two operating segments.
UMeLook is a niche market player that does not compete with local video platforms such as Youku & Ku6; most local video platforms are focused on local content. There is no competition from YouTube, Dailymotion or Vimeo, as all are blocked in China. China has 570 million online video viewers and expected to grow to 716 million by 2016.
The K-12 education system in China is the largest in the world. According to Statistics China released by the China Press and Publications Administration, it is indicated that 154,526 types of publications went to press nationally in 2011, including 63.1 million books. Total sales were 966.82 billion RMB (US$154 billion) -52.9% and 37.39% being primary and secondary school materials respectively. The potential market for related digital services such as UMFun is so huge that the Chinese K-12 online education market is called the last piece of meat on the table in the worldwide digital media space.
Q: Investorideas.com
In closing, do you think there are similar opportunities like the recent one with China Mobile or are you working with them exclusively?
A: President and CEO Michael Lee
* The China Mobile deal is just the beg inning. We do expect and are well positioned to do a similar deal with China Telecom and China Union Telecom; each of these companies serving 300 million customers respectively. Our products are user friendly and can only enhance the service providers.
