> I don't disagree with the current economics @mamartins / @Oloompa. $10 is too expensive for APAC. For now. But, all new technologies go through this curve. What some industries should recognize is that it will be less expensive for them to give away Security Keys to customers than to waste time/money with all the other crap they buy/implement to do "risk scoring" on the back-end to minimize breaches and fraud.

This is an interesting point, maybe I'm naive here but I have a Yubikey and it has nothing that authenticates me. All someone needs to do is steal/find it and have access to my accounts. How is that more secure than a password!?
