Dankort is a national Danish debit card scheme that was introduced back in 1984 and which has been the dominating card having broad support from retailers, banks and consumers. The card is free to use for the consumer in stores, and has been a major contributor to the drive toward an almost cash-free society.
In early 2017 the Dankort became mobile when Nets together with banks and merchants launched a number of local wallets in the market, allowing both Android and iOS users to connect and pay with their card. This was done without adopting the worldwide EMV NFC standard, which is used for the physical card. Instead the solution is using Unwire Connect based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), which allows close proximity pairing between mobile devices and payment terminals and thereby giving more flexibility compared to NFC.
