NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 21, 2015) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric is in advanced stages for releasing its new biometric-activated and user-validated EMV payments card in both the United States and throughout the European Union.

The company is however not stopping with these Western countries. Approaches from financial institutions in the Asia Pacific region will see SmartMetric enter substantial high growth markets throughout Asia within a short time frame following its United States and EU product deployment.

"We are extremely excited about the incredible prospects for the company with our biometric secure EMV chip payments card product and are prepared to capitalise on the substantial existing global market of over 3.4 billion issued EMV chip cards in use around the world," said SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric biometric payments card is self-powered with a rechargeable battery, inside-the-card fingerprint reader that uses the person's fingerprint to activate the card's EMV chip prior to a payments transaction.
