Fintech Surge 2022
Payments are just a Tap away ;
#bpay wearables now available on payinfashion.com!
payinfashion.com – the World’s first e-commerce platform for tokenized payment solutions and accessories explodes into action at Fintech Surge 2022
The Fintech Surge launch of the e-commerce platform was received with immense enthusiasm from the large contingent of young audience, who immediately saw the significance and future potential of such a resource.
Alex, an IT enthusiast and startup founder, who visited the BIO-IDZ Pavilion for the launch spoke about why smart payment accessories like the ones available on payinfashion.com will be so sought after in the years to come. “Today more than ever, we live in a world of integrated technology and smart accessories. I remember just a few years ago, IoT was the big ‘buzzword’, while today, we are already talking about using biometrics in ways other than identification and security. I have already had a lot of people show interest in owning and using such devices, but payinfashion.com now makes it possible to purchase them at one source. I will be keeping a very close eye on the fortunes of this exciting company.”
During his keynote speech on the final day of the event, BIO-IDZ CEO and Founder, Ranjith K Shyamaladas was asked how he came up with the idea of re-branding payment accessories as Fashion Tech. “I would like to think of myself as a futurist. I believe very strongly in innovation and that is one of the foundational pillars behind our company – in fact I would go far as to say that it is this desire to inspire innovation that birthed payinfashion.com. Ultimately, what is Fashion but Innovation? We are living in some very interesting times, where roughly one-third of our population (the youth) are what we refer to as Digital Natives. This is a generation which is perfectly suited to living almost their entire lives online. So in the not very distant future, we will be speaking of entire lifestyles in the Metaverse. This is where I see the next big jump in fashion ! ”
Indeed techies from across the world seem to resonate with this sentiment. Fashion labels have been entering the Metaverse in record numbers and smart payment accessories will be the next to follow. With NFTs already a sought after commodity among speculators and futurists, smart tokens will be the “must have accessories” for the ‘Denizens of the Metaverse’.
BIO-IDZ dazzles audience with innovative tokenized payment solutions at Fintech Surge 2022
Bio-idz, an official Gold Sponsor at the recently concluded Fintech Surge 2022 (Dubai), made a bold statement by launching their #bpay range of accessories and wearables. The company, which is a global leader in creating customized and tokenized payment solutions, saw thousands visit their pavilion at the Surge.
From making contactless payments with just a ring tap to accessing a Tesla with just a bracelet, Bio-idz dazzled an awestruck audience with a glittering array of Fashion Accessories and Payment Solutions.
Visitors to the Bio-idz pavilion (10 – 13 Oct, 2022) were able to experience first-hand how Fintech Tech solutions such as ‘smartwatches’ and rings are set to evolve into ‘Fashion Tech’ accessories, as the online world braces for the Metaverse ! This is also what made the company’s launch of the world’s first fashion-tech NFT so thrilling, especially for the large number of young visitors who salivated at the idea of experiencing it in the Metaverse.
The launch of the NFT at the hands of Mr. Venugopal Keloth and Mr. Sagar Kamath, alongside CEO Mr. Ranjith K Shyamaldas was a special moment indeed for the entire team, as it signified a foray into a brave new world of Web3 and Metaverses. The unique product is now available for sale on OpenSea and will be a prize catch for tech enthusiasts and futurists in the times to come.
As one of the young attendees to the booth remarked, “With so much of our lives now being consumed by the online world, it is great to see a range like #bpay that not only simplifies payments but also looks great!”
Bio-idz CEO and Founder, Ranjith K Shyamaldas prophesied during his keynote address on the final day that his company was headed for the $ 1 billion or Unicorn Club by the year 2025. “When we first began operations in 2017, concepts such as iOT and payment accessories were still not household terms and our products were mainly focused on biometrics. However, as someone who has always believed in using technology to simplify and beautify human lives, our foray into ‘fashion-technology’ was inevitable. Now as we see a world of NFTs and Avatars, customized token accessories will be the future of e-payments.”
True to his words, the pavilion also witnessed a steady stream of corporate visitors ranging from noted banks to budding startups, eager to unearth opportunities to synergize.
Fintech Surge 2022 might be officially over but the ‘buzz’ continues with the #bpay range of wearables set to his offline stores across the GCC this week !

We have been gripped by ‘NFT fever’ – and if experts are right (and they generally are), Non-Fungible Tokens are here to stay! As we approach the twilight of 2022, the NFT storm in gaming, art and fashion is unrelenting and it’s clearly here to stay.
“Oh, but you mustn’t invest in them … this is just a passing trend … this is just speculators ‘milking’ the market” – NFTs seem to have withstood all of this and are continuing to make headlines as they trade for millions of dollars.
So just what is an NFT and why is it taking the digital world by storm?
Here are 5 Facts that every speculator, investor or first-time dabbler must know about Non-Fungible Tokens:
Are NFTs related to Cryptocurrencies?
An NFT is a Digital Asset or Token and the underlying software that encodes it is very similar to cryptocurrencies. This is why most NFT purchases and sales online happen via cryptocurrencies. Another reason why NFTs are closely linked to cryptocurrencies is that unlike conventional currencies/money, NFTs are Non-Fungible – meaning that they cannot be exchanged or replaced with other similar tokens. This is very different to how conventional currencies work, where a 1 dollar bill can be replaced/substituted with another one of the same value. Each NFT token on the other hand is absolutely unique.
Just what all can become an NFT?
NFTs can be digital assets portraying pretty much any real world object/item including music, artwork, videos, in-game artifacts and even jokes or memes. The fact that each NFT is unique, makes it a ‘collectible’ and thus desirable. When an NFT of let’s say a priced painting is purchased, the purchaser purchases the digital file of the painting and the proof of possession, rather than the actual physical object itself. Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey once converted a tweet of his into an NFT and sold it for $ 2.9 million.
How much is an NFT worth?
One might think that a ‘digital depiction’ of an actual product might not be worth very much. But guess again! The pandemic was an absolute blessing for the NFT market, with the total traded worth exceeding $ 25 billion worldwide. An NFT artwork titled EVERYDAYS: THE FIRST 5000 DAYS, created by the famous digital artist Mike Winkelmann raked in a staggering $ 69.3 million!
Where can I buy/sell an NFT?
NFTs can only be purchased by sites such as Open Sea NFT, Rarible, NFT Showroom, SuperRare and a few others. This is because even though an NFT looks like any odd image you might find on the internet, purchasing an NFT needs one to also pay for the blockchain space that recognizes the image/file as an original NFT with value.
Are NFTs divisible?
No. Unlike Cryptocurrencies, NFTs are indivisible. Meaning, that they cannot be broken down or traded in parts. No two NFTs are the same and no NFT can be split into two.
The future is Fun, Fabulous and Non-Fungible!
And we @ Bio-idz recognize it.

We are eagerly looking forward to what the future has in store for us.”

Enter the world of NFTs, fashion wearables and accessories for tomorrow’s ‘Meta Environments’!
Fashion has always served as a reflection of society’s most flamboyant instincts and every generation from the ‘boomers’ to the ‘millenials’ have had those that pushed the boundaries of what is considered the ‘norm’.
Today’s ‘digital society’ is no different. An entire generation of young folk (Gen Z/Alpha) are starting to redefine what fashion can be and it’s taking the whole of the online world by storm. Unlike their predecessors, today’s youth live and breathe online and with some of their lives being played out within the digital world, fashion and fashion trends have also begun to make a shift.
When Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook first began to speak of the ‘Metaverse’ not very long ago, the signs were already there that the current and future generations would be spending a disproportionate amount of time in cyberspace!
Here are 5 reasons why fashion in the Metaverse will be bigger than anything we have known so far:
1. Technology will drive tomorrow’s fashion trends:
For the longest time ever, technology was considered geeky while fashion was trendy! Their followers simply didn’t overlap. But all of that is changing with the emergence of the Metaverse. Brands, especially fashion brands are flocking to release their digital fashion accessories and wearables. While there are those who still cast aspirations of this phenomenon, one thing is fast becoming clear – If we are to spend so much of our life online, we must at least appear ‘cool’ doing it!
2. The rise of NFTs:
While online gamers have long been familiar with “skin” or digital attire – to be purchased within the game environment, using real money, NFTs or Non Fungible Tokens really shot to prominence during the pandemic. While the physical world lay frozen thanks to Covid, the Metaverse offered opportunities for people stuck at home to “travel” or “hang out” and of course while doing so, one must look good. NFT sales grew from just under $ 30 million in 2021 to over $ 10 billion in 2022.
3. It’s Pro Environment:
With so much focus on global warming, it is but natural that every industry including the Fashion Industry is looking to reduce its carbon footprint. Wearable NFTs are extraordinarily pro environment, emitting upto 97% less carbon dioxide than physical cloth.
4. It’s extremely inclusive:
One of the great challenges that has always confronted the fashion industry is that their subjects are rarely homogeneous. Differences in body types, climatic conditions, culture and appeal across the world have always presented barriers to a uniform fashion code. The Metaverse can change all of that, as digital avatars can be customized according to the user’s specifications and can ‘wear’ literally any kind of apparel within the digital ecosystem.
5. It’s just getting started:
Even though it’s a radical idea for most people, brands like Nike, Adidas, Gap, and Crocs have entered the NFT market with wearables. Incredibly, the digital fashion industry is estimated to grow to $ 56 billion by 2030.
