You probably already know that here at Quontic Bank, we mean it when we say we have a passion for innovation: we’re the first bank in the world to offer a Bitcoin Rewards Checking account and as a Community Development Financial Institution, we’re an industry leader when it comes to making quality financing more readily available to underserved and low-income communities.
So we’re proud to offer you the newest iteration of our innovative spirit: the Quontic Pay Ring. Yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like: a wearable ring that puts payment at your fingertips, literally.
What is the Quontic Pay Ring?
The Quontic Pay Ring is a piece of payment technology that allows you to make contactless payments anywhere they’re accepted—and it’s also a stylish accessory with a versatile, gender-neutral design. Instead of having to fish around in your wallet to find your debit card, you just curl your fingers over the payment terminal as if you were knocking on a friend’s door or giving them a fist-bump. Voila: transaction accepted via wearable payment!
The payment ring isn’t just nice to look at: it’s next-level convenient, and easier than using other forms of mobile app payment, like Apple Pay, Google Pay or Paypal. It’s also may be a more sanitary option than cash, which some vendors have stopped taking—and some consumers stopped relying on—in the wake of the pandemic.
Whether you’re stopping for a quick bottle of water while you’re out on a run, at a crowded concert where you don’t want to tote around a purse, or just looking for a way to make real-time payments that much simpler, the Quontic Pay Ring has you covered anywhere contactless payments are accepted. All it takes is a wave of your hand.
Is the Quontic Pay Ring safe and reliable?
Given the novelty of this new technology, it’s fair to wonder about its efficacy and security—but the Quontic Pay Ring is designed with real life in mind. For starters, you won’t have to scrounge around to find your USB charging cable: this unique piece of wearable technology doesn’t need to be charged.
And if you’re someone who uses your hands a lot, no worries on that front, either. Our payment ring is both water- and scratch-resistant, which means you can keep it on in the shower and throughout pretty much any day-to-day adventure. It’s ready when and where you are.
Safety, of course, is always our first priority, which is why we’ve made it easy to disable the use of your pay ring from your online bank account interface if it’s been lost or stolen. As always, the funds in your eligible Quontic checking account are FDIC-insured1 up to the standard $250,000, so you can spend and save with confidence.
Finally, keep in mind that you’re always free to use your debit card in addition to your Quontic Pay Ring—it’s not one or the other! Quontic’s mission is to make your financial life more convenient and customizable, not less so. The payment ring is just a new way to access your money in a safe, secure, and reliable way on the go.
