Click image above to see large view of Narae Card.
Back in March of 2011, I posted some information on the DPRK’s Narae Debit Card. It is one of two debit card systems functioning in the DPRK of which I am aware (here is information on the Koryo Bank Debit Card).
Some time has passed since Narae’s launch, however, and Dr. Seliger reports that use of the debit card in Pyongyang is growing. As evidence he sends along a list of Pyongyang establishments that are accepting the card.
It is worth pointing out, again, that the Narae card stores balances in hard currency.
