Obviously, the stupid part of this is the contract requiring merchants not to accept anything else. One would think a merchant would want to take as many forms of payment as they can, for the convenience of the customer.
Since we haven't see a part leak, I'd guess there isn't much to this. Either it doesn't look like anything noteworthy, or it's a new design that's not yet in production where it could leak.

Information must still be decrypted and exist in a physical form when the user is interacting with it. Get court-ordered end-point surveillance of a person when they are...
