THE FUTURE OF THE ELECTRONIC WALLET AND THE MODERNIZATION OF GLOBAL PAYMENT PLATFORMS

11:45-13:00 Mercedes Bar
From retail payments via mobile devices to national payment systems, the way in which we spend our money is changing rapidly. How are innovations in payment methods being married with independent settlement platforms to offer new payment, digital currencies and transaction platforms? What might this mean for businesses and consumers? What are the risks and opportunities for enhanced security as innovations in payment platforms take effect?

Highlights

Security and trust are absolutely the foundations for payment systems. Security needs to be part of the innovation process from the very beginning.

Kamran Siddiqi
Group Executive for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa, Visa Inc.

Banking won’t disappear. The technology will change but, in general, relations will remain the same.

Vladimir Komlev
General Director, JSC National System of Payment Cards

Today, we are witnessing the next technological revolution. This revolution is the mixing of online and offline processes.

David Yang
Founder, Chairman of the Board, ABBYY

I can predict that, over the next 10 years, at least one country will stop printing money in the form of banknotes and will move to cash in the form of an electronic wallet.

Victor Orlovsky
‎Managing Partner, MoneyTime Ventures

The penetration rate of electronic payments is enormous. If plastic cards took decades to penetrate retail trade, then the speed of penetration by electronic payments can be calculated in years.
