…so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:17 NIV
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. Revelation 14:9-10 NIV
Are you ready for RFID chips built into your money and documents?
is developing a new RFID chip to be embedded into its currency Saudi Arabia
Have you heard about the tracking device in U.S. banknotes? There’s a plastic strip embedded in $20 bills that lets the government track them and count how much money is in your wallet by sending a signal to a satellite. That’s an urban legend that dates back to at least 2001, but something a bit like it is coming true inhttp://spectrum.ieee.org/podcast/computing/embedded-systems/trackable-banknotes-at-last
Saudi Arabia. Researchers at the Functional Nanomaterials and Devices Laboratory at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology are working on putting a memory device into banknotes. As in the U.S. $20 bills, the purpose is to cut down on counterfeiting, but unlike them, the Saudi system has some electronics on board. It can send an RFID radio signal to a scanner, and it contains some nonvolatile memory that can store a record of it every time it’s scanned.
