Episode 1 – Payment: what comes next?
In 2016, the market’s largest segment in Europe was “Digital Payments” with a total transaction value of US$541,394m according to a recent study published by Statista. Payment solutions also had the biggest impact on banking and have been recognised by experts as the hottest sector for the year 2016, followed by security / authentification and lending.
We suggest that you read Capgemini’s study on the 10 trends in Payments in 2016. The study shows the growth in adoption of digital payments, entry of non-traditional players and proliferation of immediate payments as well as the potential of Blockchain solutions that could further disrupt the industry.
