Including VeriPay, SWIFT, Payment Technology, applying the subdermal VeriChip to all banking and retailing and all financial services.
VeriChip is an implanted radio frequency ID chip. When it is used for cashless financial transactions, it is referred to as the VeriPay System. ( works with eft systems)
Began in Spain.
When the VeriChip ID implant is used to access medical record-databases and e-health medlinks,
it is referred to as the VeriMed System.
Began in Italy.
Security: When VeriChip is used for accessing buildings, businesses, plants, and for security ID etc. it is working in conjunction with the VeriGuard SAC System.
Began in Mexico.
For educational purposes, there is VeriKid.
The Bible warns us not take the Mark of the Beast in the right hand or forehead for commercial purposes ( buying and selling).
We are not to belong to the System's Loyalty program.... a loyalty and allegiance to the coming world leader whom the Bible calls "the beast". Behind the antichrist , false prophet and the all-encompassing enslaving System is the Dragon---Satan himself.
Revelation 13. [ 666 Mark of the beast ]
We are strongly warned in Revelation 14: 9 - 11
not to worship the Beast,
nor to transact in his name
nor his mark
nor his image. ( notice all those large plasma screens on the nightly news ? )

The consequence for doing so is eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire.
How VeriPay works (electronic funds transfer )
VeriPay ( eft system that works with any eft system) payment technology
Gimme Some Skin............ ( VeriPAY ..payment technology)
Applied Digital Solutions' CEO told attendees of the ID World ... in Paris held in late November, that the company's newest subdermal radio frequency identification (RFID) application is nearly ready for market.
VeriPay, a secure, subdermal RFID payment technology for cash and credit transactions, could make physical money obsolete. The payment technology relies on the company's VeriChip, which is about the size of a grain of rice. VeriChip is a subdermal RFID microchip already used in a variety of security, financial, emergency identification and other applications.
Currently the company sells RFID chips to people with medical conditions, such as diabetes or allergies to common medications. Since the chips are implanted under the skin, emergency response personnel have a nearly fool-proof way to access data about a person's medical needs.
The company said VeriPay's unique, subdermal format offers a much more secure, tamper-proof and loss-proof RFID solution to payment technologies.
Applied Digital Solutions said the company is working with banking and credit companies to develop specific commercial applications -- beginning with appropriate pilot programs and other market tests --
for the VeriPay subdermal RFID solution.
Original format was a "read-chip" with information scripted along with a number
"The father, mother and son each have an individual chip on which they stored telephone numbers and information about medications.
Although approved for human use, the FDA has warned consumers of possible side effects in a letter, available at www.sec.gov . Such effects could include
"adverse tissue reaction; migration of implanted transponder; compromised information security;
failure of implanted transponder; failure of inserter; failure of electronic scanner; electromagnetic interference; electrical hazards; magnetic resonance imaging incompatibility and needle stick."
VeriPay--subdermal solution for buying and selling ( just like it says in Rev. 13 )
Nov. 21, 2003--Applied Digital Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSX - News) an advanced technology development company, announced that the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Scott R. Silverman, in his speech today at the ID World 2003 in Paris, France, revealed the Company's newest subdermal RFID solution called VeriPay(TM). VeriPay is intended to be a secure, subdermal RFID (radio frequency identification) payment technology for cash and credit transactions.
Ed: Notice that the word "chip" is never used in this article. The word "solution" and "payment technology" are used. This means that the embedded chip in the hand works in conjunction with a secure e-commerce SYSTEM known as "VeriPay"
(see articles below for further explanation)
VeriChip then is most likely used in conjunction with the VeriPay transfer SYSTEM.
"At ID World 2003 in Paris, Mr. Silverman made the point that the subdermal RFID VeriPay technology specifically addresses the security issue. VeriPay's unique, under-the-skin format offers a much more secure, tamper-proof, and loss-proof solution. VeriPay brings to consumers the benefits of fast and reliable RFID technology along with the security of a subdermal format.
In announcing VeriPay to ID World delegates, Mr. Silverman
expressed his belief that VeriPay has enormous
marketplace potential and invited
banking and credit companies to partner with VeriChip
Corporation in developing specific commercial applications,
beginning with appropriate pilot programs and other market tests,
for the VeriPay subdermal RFID solution.
"OPEN SYSTEMS" = Global e-commerce
Cash is increasingly coming under threat from Radio Frequency ID contactless payment systems that require a user only to wave a small object such as a credit card, key ring or mobile phone near a reader terminal.
The expansion of contactless payment from closed, branded systems to open systems tied to bank accounts and major credit card issuers will lift the services to the next level, according to Michielsen.
VeriPay ,the complete e-commerce SYSTEM-Solution (payment technology, ebanking)
"Since introducing SMS-based credit card authorisation via resellers such as Xilo and VeriPay, Collins said Itaba3 had attracted about 50 active clients. While that figure is a drop in the ocean compared with the 500,000 businesses that accept credit cards overall, it's a niche product many small businesses may find more appealing than renting a mobile Eftpos device from their bank.
The SECURITY of using the VeriPay payment system
Transactions between your browser and the VeriPay server are protected by 128-bit encryption.
128-bit encryption is the highest level of encryption available over the Internet today.
This process encodes Internet information transferred between clients and servers, rendering information and data indecipherable to anyone trying to intercept or capture the information. All authorised customer information and data submitted to Shawtec is stored within a secure environment. The VeriPay servers are operated on "hardened" systems designed to withstand external intrusions, and as a further precautionary measure, all sensitive database information is encrypted.
The Financial final-step
It has been one of the primary objectives of the banking industry to eliminate the use of coin and currency from society. A couple of reasons why they are doing this. First, there is "no money" for the banks in the use of cash. Individuals could use cash in all of their transactions without the prospect of paying a bank service fee each time they did so.
Secondly, the banking industry would have 100% control over all of our financial dealings with the elimination of coin and currency. Without cash, consider where you would be if the computer systems went down at a crucial time and you could not access your account. Consider the possibility of your bank or banker refusing you access to your account either deliberately or in error. Where would that leave you?
Smart cards can also be stolen, lost or damaged putting your money at risk. So the bankers will then go to the next step, the implanted microchip which will link people directly to their smart card so their will be no way it can be lost. The "chip" will no longer be in the card but inside the human body!
A company in Florida called Applied Digital Systems
is now poised to market the "Verichip"
which is the size of a grain of rice and would be embedded
beneath a person's skin. The information on this chip could
include your medical records, your banking records, how much you
owe on your mortgage, credit cards and other personal loans. It
could also be used to track your activities
anywhere you go in the world. It would replace all of your
present forms of ID such as, passports, driver's licenses, social
security and credit/debit cards. You will not be able
to withdraw money from the bank without it, receive benefits from
the government without it, buy or sell anything without it. The
chip would also include data on your family history, address,
occupation, criminal record, income tax information etc.

VeriChip as a Digital Wallet
Now the chip's creator, Applied Digital Solutions Inc. of Palm Beach, Fla., is pitching it as a digital wallet that could automatically make purchases in stores.
The device employs radio frequency identification technology, or RFID, which companies such as Wal-Mart Stores are testing for more mundane purposes such as tracking inventory and ringing up products at the register.
But how does one install such a chip in a human? Easy, says Applied Digital:

Good witnessing tool !
In Europe, the World Banking Association already has an international money transfer system in operation called SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications). The Burroughs Corporation has installed two large computer operations, the main system in Brussels and a backup system in Amsterdam, Holland. The purpose of SWIFT is to make international banking transfers for all the major banks of the world. Funds can now be transferred internationally in minutes rather than the weeks it took under the old system. The computer automatically changes pounds to lira, or dollars to francs, making whatever exchange is necessary.
Sixty major banks in the United States went on-line with SWIFT in Brussels on September 26, 1977. On October 19, 1977, the system was formally inaugurated when Prince Albert of Belgium pushed the golden button before a gathered group of dignitaries from all over the world.

However, there is one major problem with the credit card system. How can the retailer be certain that the person presenting the card is the one entitled to its use? [ Ed. note: VeriChip will solve this problem ]

Microsoft and IBM in competition to transform internet software
Microsoft and International Business Machines have been attempting to gain backing for a competing approach to writing Internet software, which the two companies argue would be a better, more general solution for business-to-business computer communications than the original U.N.-developed standard, known as ebXML. The previously hidden dispute may seem arcane, but it revolves around computing standards that are likely to help determine control over a new generation of software designed to *automate buying and selling through networks of computer connections.* Many industry executives say they believe the new software, which falls under a category known in the industry as Web services, will supplant computer operating systems as the linchpin of the industry.

Credit Cards tap into radio tags
Professor Ted Selker said the way someone moved their finger over the card would alter the radio transmission, producing a signal unique to that person.
"I could have some gesture and that would be my signature," he said, "it would be like a personal handshake."
The idea of putting radio tags in credit cards is not as far-fetched as it sounds. Mastercard has been experimenting with the technology, known as Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
RFID tags are tiny transponders that send out radio signals and some experts predict they will become commonplace over the next decade or so.
By watching a finger moving around an antenna, we can literally see that the finger changes the antenna's behaviour," he told BBC News Online.
"I could draw letters and it would tell just by where my finger is how that is affecting the radio signal, whether or not it was me."
Wouldn't it be nice if something better than my signature would be transmitted without me having to use an external device?"

eft surpasses checks
In 2003, e-payments exceeded paper checks for the first time in the U.S., at 44.5 billion e-payments, versus 36.7 billion check payments, according to a new Federal Reserve study, reported ePaynews.com. Credit cards endure as the most popular electronic payment method, with 19 billion transactions in 2003, at a total value of $1.7 trillion, while 15.6 billion debit card transactions were made in 2003, to the value of $600 billion. By 2007, the Fed predicts credit and debit cards to surpass checks in terms of total annual transactions, which implies opportunities for technology vendors.
With the Nilson Report predicting one-half of
the 8 million vending machines in the U.S. to be credit
card-enabled by 2009, analysts see cashless micropayments at
vending machines and kiosks as an untapped opportunity. The
Kiplinger Report is also predicting wireless, cashless payment
use at vending machines to double industry sales to $70
billion by 2010.
Credit card payments at vending machines are similarly projected to total $570 million, or 2 million transactions, by 2007, according to a recent paper from the National Automatic Merchandising Association. http://auto.cygnus.proteus.com/article/article.jsp?id=13206&siteSection=1

The Modern Day Midas Touch
PALM BEACH, FL -- Applied Digital Solutions is giving self-scanning a whole new meaning with its VeriPay RFID (radio frequency identification) payment technology for cash and credit transactions that is implanted under the skin
..... the world's first subdermal RFID microchip that can be used in a variety of security, financial, emergency identification and other applications, according to Applied Digital
"We are the only ones out there offering implantable
ID technology. We believe the market will evolve to use
our product," said Silverman, who
invited banking and credit companies to partner with VeriChip Corporation in developing specific commercial applications, beginning with pilot programs and other market tests for VeriPay.
Some questioned whether consumers will make the leap to having a payment system embedded in their skin just for the sake of convenience.
Aside from consumer-privacy advocates, there are opponents who take a more dire view of the new technology and link VeriChip to the "mark of the beast." In the Book of Revelation, it says Satan
[ Ed. note: actually says the false prophet will "cause" , endorsing the antichrist ] will one day make people
"receive a mark" on their foreheads or hands in order to buy or sell.
"This is a gigantic step toward the mark of the beast," said Gary Wohlscheid, who tracks signs of the apocalypse on his Web site, These Last Days Ministries.

COCKTAILS and CHIPS

The practice has drawn criticism, however. Privacy advocates worry the technology would make it easier for the government to spy on its citizens and for marketers to identify customers and bombard them with sale pitches. Others object at a gut level, equating human RFID chips with the "mark of the beast," a demonic symbol described in the Bible.
Stored-Value Chip in arm birthed in Barcelona Spain
( a debit-chip ; not the REAL 666 VeriChip of global transactions in REAL time)
This debit-chip is SMALLER than the actual VeriChip; like a key-fob
Ed: The Verichip Corporation puts out different Verichips.
Please http://hopetotheend.com/size.html see for fuller explanation.
One has to wonder if ---since there are different VeriChips --- will the 666 Mark of the Beast VeriChip be called by the name of the "one voice" of global policy ? Time will tell.
This pre-cursor to the 666 Mark of the Beast is what we call the "retailer-chip". It is designed to be used exclusively with the local retailer, and not with world-wide banking as will be the coming 666 chip.
This "retailer-chip" is becoming fashionable in bars and nightclubs in Spain, and in the Netherlands and now in Scotland in the UK.
From Spain to the Netherlands to the UK .... cocktail bar chips
"The chip is already proving popular with VIP members at two nightclubs in Barcelona and Rotterdam. Although the concept strikes critics as Orwellian, others believe it is only a matter of time before the chip becomes a method of fraud-proof common currency.
"There are a number of advantages from instant access to one of our many exclusive DJ and VIP nights and not having to carry money or credit cards to letting bar staff know a customer's name and favorite drink. By the time you walk through the door to the bar, your favorite drink is waiting for you and the bar staff can greet you by name," Stevens said.
Although these forerunners are not the 666 MOB, they do imitate the function of the 666 MOB and therefore are an excellent tool for breaking down resistance to the real 666 Mark of the Beast when it finally comes.
They are made to look "cool", and are for "VIPs" and the "VIP lounges". How very tony.
Yet, one day the imitation will be replaced by the Real 666 Mark of the Beast ........
and with clouded-consent, they will have consigned themselves to the Lake of Fire for all eternity
( Rev. 14: 9--11 ).
Another sad fact is that these nightclubs and discos will be readily available for dispensing the 666 Mark of the Beast when it arrives. They will be able to do that for 24 hours a day because of the new law in the UK allowing bars to be open for 24 hours a day.
Will this become the latest dispensing place for the coming 666 Mark of the Beast . ? .... Open 24 / 7.
Resistance will then not only become futile...it will become nil.
Bars open 24 hours in UK
Imagine, then, the scenes in November this year when the Licensing Act 2003 comes into force. From February 7, Britain's 198,000 pubs and clubs will be entitled to apply for 24-hour opening licences under this controversial government legislation. Thus, the final remaining restraints on binge-boozing in Britain will be swept away. The result will be an increase in crime, more addicts and greater numbers of alcohol-related injuries.
It naively believes that relaxing the law to include round-the-clock drinking - which has existed in many European cities for decades - will lead to a more restrained cafe society.
society? The cafe society closes here at 5pm sharp, mate,"
says Jose Fernandes, the owner of the Madeira Cafe in St George's
Walk in the south London borough of Croydon.
"Cafe-society" hours would, Mr Fernandes believes, give carte blanche to binge-drinking. Though he has lived in Britain for 26 years, he is a native of Portugal. "We don't have this problem there, except in the Algarve," he says, "where the British tourists go." Within three hours of Mr Fernandes and his fellow cafe-owners closing, the streets and the pubs are awash with drunken louts.

However, it has been Steven Green, the Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire and the licensing spokesman for the Association of Chief Police Officers, who put the case most succinctly. "If we want a cafe culture, build cafes," he says. "If we want 24 hours of hell, let's keep on the way we are going. I am sick of my officers being used as punch bags by drunken thugs."
past few days, two of Britain's largest pub chains - Yates Group
which operates 153 bars and JD Wetherspoon, which has 600
premises - have also opposed the new Act. Back on the streets of
Croydon, Kettering and Birmingham, it is now 4am and the streets,
though littered with broken bottles and fouled by vomit and
urine, are quietening down. It has, say officers in all three
areas, been a "relatively quiet night". Nothing like as
bad as it could have been, says one, pulling off his helmet
wearily. He is splattered with blood and stinks of vomit.
"One of the quietest," he says. "This was nothing
to what it's usually like." Or what it will be like when the
urban savages are allowed to drink all night.

The director of this club and person in charge of the launching of this technology, Conrad Chase, has assured that a doctor will place the right glass chip under the skin with a syringe of only sterilized use and by means of a process similar to the one of a vaccine.
"he does not cause any annoyance, one does not enlist, he does not puncture, does not hurt, perhaps but he could be detectable by the metal sensors, although it is necessary to consider that any button of tejano takes to ten times more metal than the VeriChip", it indicated Chase.
This device will be used like identification VIP , to load money or to open the door of automatic form, according to has indicated the owner of the premises. The objective of this technology is to have a system of identification
Tuesday night is chipping night
2 months later ...
As of May 23, only 9 people have taken the chip ( queueless in Barcelona )
despite all the perks
So far only nine people have been implanted since the scheme started in March. "This is because you cannot implant people who agree to it in the early hours when they might be drunk. They need to discuss the procedure in a sober environment first," says Conrad Chase, managing director of the Baja Beach Club in Barcelona, which offers this service.
Funny Conrad should say that. He initiated the procedure at 2 am April 6th ( hardly a sober-time )
"But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Ye are all the children of the Light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others,; but let us watch and be sober.
For they that sleep, sleep in the night; and they that be drunken be drunken in the night.
But let us who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love;
and for an helmet, the hope of salvation." 1 Thessalonians 5:4 -- 8
" It's a shame that they birth this chip among drinkers ... those with the least resistence.
It shows how weak their [VeriChip's] position is that they need to lessen the inhibitions in people in order to get the ball rolling.
What a ploy ...just to have that feeling of belonging and be a "VIP" (peer-pressure, the strongest pressure there is)."
VIP membership ( no queues)
Clubbers in Spain are choosing to receive a microchip implant [ Stored Value Chip] instead of carrying a membership card. It is the latest and perhaps the most unlikely of uses for implantable radio frequency ID chips.
The Baja Beach Club in Barcelona offers people signing up for VIP membership a choice between an RFID chip and a normal card. VIP members can jump the entrance queues, reserve a table and use the nightclub's VIP lounge.

There don't seem to be any rules about where on the body it has to be placed. If you think this sounds like something you'd never do, then you're not the kind of person who goes to clubs wearing your bestest nose ring.
Once implanted, you become your own credit card. Need to pay for a drink? Wave your implant near a reader, and you're done. VeriChip has dreams of going global with its "human implantable ID technology" once implanted, you could wave a body part to pay for a burger at Wendy's, a beer at a baseball game, or whatever.

Comment from a friend :
" Here in Holland there are also many banks, and I remember not so very long ago every bank had a ATM which only functioned for the bankcard that bank had issued. So if you had a bankcard of another bank, you could not draw money from that particular ATM. They then worked out a plan to make every ATM suitable for every bankcard. The critics said this would take years to accomplish. But within six months or so you could then get money from every ATM with any bankcard --- no matter which bank it came from. This is called "standardization", and so it can also be with the subdermal chip e-payment. " H V

Payment technology Systems
Baja Beach Clubs International had employed the VeriPay System, developed by Applied Digital's VeriChip Corporation, at a night club in Spain.
Launched at a global security conference in November, 2003, the VeriPay System is a new syringe-injectable microchip implant for humans, designed to be used as a fraud-proof payment method for cash and credit-card transactions. The chip implant is an advance over credit cards and smart cards, which, absent biometrics and appropriate safeguard technologies, are subject to theft, resulting in identity fraud.
We are the only company today offering human implantable ID technology," said Scott R. Silverman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Applied Digital Solutions. "We believe the market opportunity for this technology is substantial, and high-profile successes such as in Spain will serve as catalysts for broader adoption."
"The VeriPay chipping event was a huge success," said Conrad K. Chase, Director of the Baja Beach Clubs International. "Everyone embraced the electronic payment application. My customers like the fact that they do not have to carry a credit card or ID card with them. With the VeriPay system, they no longer have to worry about their credit cards getting lost or stolen."

One Barcelona man who had the nightclub chip implanted told a newspaper that he would love to have his Social Security number, ID card and credit card on a subcutaneous chip so he would no longer have to carry a wallet
Most consumers, meanwhile, dont want to carry or use a token, device or cell phone to authenticate their transactions, Gartners survey found.
Armenia : chip interview
The US suggests uniting the social cards and ID cards in a microchip and instilling it in human beings to be sure they wont get lost or misused.
Things noticed in this article:
ADS acts as if they never had the intention of making a human subdermal ID chip. That is hard to believe , especially since most of their contracts were with the Government ).
Also notice the euphemism "end of days " used in this article, instead of the correct term "Mark of the Beast".
Call it what they may, it will end up in the 666 Lake of Fire - bin. ( Rev. 14: 9 -11 )
Note: They incorrectly state that Christians are concerned with the transmitter near the collarbone
( location-finder ). That is not the Biblical issue at all. The Biblical issue is the consumerism aspect...
the fact that no one can buy or sell without the 666 Mark of the Beast. That's a roadmap to hell.
And finally, note the word "consumers" in the second to the last paragraph :
"Once consumers are aware of the implications, he added, they will decide if the benefits outweigh the security concerns."
This proves that commercialism -- buying and selling --is what VIPchip is all about . ( Rev. 13: 16 - 18 )
Club co-owner Conrad Chase, a former star of the Spanish version of Big Brother, says his group
might expand to Valencia and Hamburg, where they will also offer VipChip membership
And will it one day become part of everyday life?
Most of ADSs income came from government contracts to provide secure voice, data and video equipment. But the company was also interested in tracking devices, and had just bought
Destron-Fearing, a Minnesota-based company that specialised in subcutaneous animal tags. Seelig took a close look at the tag: it was well-engineered, had proven longevity, and didnt move about in the body. What would happen, he wondered, if it were put in a person instead of a cow?
The company switched focus to another, even more radical device: a transmitter, 2.5 inches in diameter, that - once inserted near the collarbone - could be tracked almost everywhere. The reaction this time was mixed. Fundamentalist Christians thought it was a forerunner of the end of days described in the Book of Revelations, which had prophesied people with numbers under their flesh.
The FDAs approval did not come without warnings, however: the tag could travel through the body; there might be adverse tissue reaction; and the chip might be difficult to extract.
VeriChip admits that it would be possible for a hacker to find out someones chip number. Ill concede that if someone wants to waste time, they can do that, says Seelig.
