CurrentC, the new payment system from MCX that's been adopted by numerous major retailers, has been hacked, and an unannounced number of email addresses were obtained. CurrentC will be launching next year, and Rite Aid and CVS have already blocked NFC and Apple Pay in favor of CurrentC.
Tom heard Leo talk about Walmart's new CurrentC/MCX payment option. Leo says that they're the king of loyalty cards, but it's complicated. Tom did use Apple Pay at Panera and it was really easy and worked great. He just put his thumb on it and it deducted money for his coffee. Nice and easy. It even told him how long ago he used it and where so he can keep track of his purchases.
