They are using them here as a payment method for discos! As simple as
that. I think they have started using them before the authorities knew it
was possible or that people would voluntarily use them.

Other method employed, for the elderly with bad memory, is a chip in their
shoes. If they cross the outside gate, the janitor is warned. They would
get lost without that, and this way they don't need locked gates.

However, what I was thinking of was biometric info in credit cards, like
fingerprint info. I have heard of thieves chopping the owner fingers to
steal the money.
