Could NFC or Near Field Communication be the next big that Bitcoin needs for offline exchange of Bitcoin?

Thoughts?

Nope, NFC is more insecure that QR.   QR is low tech but if implemented properly, can give you decent security and it is easy to use and it open sourced.  That has a lot of advantages.   I still think NFC will take off but I personally will not use it and I request all my cards without that RFID tap and go stuff removed.

In the same vein, NFC can certainly be more secure if implemented properly. Using an NFC device as a way to store a secret is an ideal use-case.

I could see a physical bitcoin kinda like MintChip using this type of tech. It would be good for small amounts using Electrum or Stratum purchases.

From what I have heard. MintChip sucks.
Yeah, but not because of the tech. It's the central control that sucks. Physical bitcoins are cool. We need more tech ideas like NFC to expand the usefulness of BTC.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.
