CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, May 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Smart Technology continues to evolve in the biometrics sector as advanced technologies become available for today's consumer looking for secured methods of future credit card payments: NXT-ID Inc. (OTCBB: NXTD), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO), Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT)
In an exclusive Q&A, Mr. Verdi discusses recent ventures including new movie deals and his investments in game-changing technologies, including Apple and biometric mobile security company NXT-ID Inc., (OTCQB: NXTD) (OTCBB: NXTD), which is currently preparing to launch its smart wallet, the Wocket™, (http://www.wocketwallet.com) with advance orders starting May 28th.
Interview Highlights with Mr. Verdi:
This past year has already seen you reach some key milestones; making movies with the best in Hollywood, like Martin Scorsese and your investment in NXTD is up over 300 percent in less than a year. What are you most excited about for the balance of this year?
A: Chad A. Verdi
Well, that's a tough one. I guess I am the most excited about NXTD right now, only because they are about to launch the Wocket™ this month. Wocket™ is a smart wallet with a re-programmable single credit card device that operates under a secured system using biometrics.
I feel it will change the way people make credit card payments worldwide. Everyone is trying to get in on this game with mobile payments, mobile wallets, mobile apps like LOOP and COIN. Everyone is trying to figure out the best way to do it. I think Wocket™ has the right approach; separate from your phone. Most people are concerned about what happens if they lose their phone or it gets stolen - what happens with all that payment info on your phone? With Wocket™, it's not a worry because after each transaction it basically goes back to a blank card. Your identity and payment info are safe!
It's great to think I originally invested in this a few years ago and now it may become the leader in the payment sector that I thought it would!

In terms of your investments, you invest in both large companies like Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Yahoo (NASDAQ: YHOO) and other big tech and entertainment companies but you also take risks and invest in smaller companies with emerging technology like NXTD. Where do you see the biggest potential pay-off?
A: Chad A. Verdi I obviously wish I would have had the opportunity to get into Apple from the beginning. I would have bet big on it, just like I have with NXTD. Companies that take a different path from what the competition is doing represent the biggest opportunity, if it works. Steve Jobs set the course for Apple, I still love the company but it's hard to know if the vision will stay intact. NXTD is still young and they are taking a revolutionary approach to payments and identity issues, very different from their competitors and I like that.
