Event description

Description

The global economy is powered by 125 million business and payments between those businesses transacted
over a variety of technologies. In the US, $2 trillion of the $58 trillion in payments generated by small business
are “other” - new digital payment technologies including cryptocurrency and blockchain created by fintechs, banks and large players like Facebook and JP Morgan. Over time, the remaining $56 trillion will shift from paper checks to more digital forms. A change in the payments landscape is imminent, and in many ways, the US is behind in digital acceptance.
