|There is a bit of social engineering aspect to using implants to make mobile debit transactions. Ostensibly, the main attraction of being a thief is easy gains, a parasitic shortcut to ownership of property and financial security. If society takes away the parasitic 'easy' then the new 'easy' becomes the non parasitic means of legitimate service, barter or commercial endeavor that the former thief is already familiar with when operating outside their previous professions. Then society would be left with only thieves who are drawn to it for the risky behavior excitement value.|
However, the use of fingerprint ID sensors built into secure devices, like iPhones (more devices to come later), fulfills the same need remarkably well, and negates the need for specialized RFID implants for mobile debit transaction verification. And potentially, stealing the phone without the fingerprint, is as useless as stealing the credit card without the RFID implant.
