SHELTON, Conn., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc., (OTCQB: NXTD) a biometric authentication company focused on the growing m-commerce market, announced the winners of the social media competition "Show us your Wallet", #Needawocket that officially closed August 17th.   

Photos and winners can be viewed at the photo gallery: in the Photo Competition section.

Ten winners received a Wocket smart wallet and $150MasterCard gift card.

Laurence Savin, a marketing consultant that managed the social media contest for NXT-ID said, "We were very happy with the response to this competition.  Some entries were very funny, some were very scary.  The competition highlighted two main things for me.  First, that for the most part, we are really carrying far too many cards in our wallets; they're a veritable goldmine for anyone with nefarious intentions.  Second, that there is still a really significant number of people in our community that don't properly understand the importance of protecting their identity and how to do that.  I guess one of the nice things that I can take away from the competition is that we've raised the awareness of dangers associated with carrying big-old wallets.  Far beyond the money that can be stolen, people are starting to understand the health and privacy implications."

One of the excited winners responded with, "Thank you for the award.  I actually bought 2 of them for my children. Now I have one.  I am so proud of what you have done to secure credit cards. I do not know anybody who loves the Wocket principle more than I do."
