The Future of Money is Dependent on the Transparency of Data - Tradeshift. Today I’m speaking at the Future of Money & Technology summit.

Hits: 6256 Walk into a grocery store or your neighborhood specialty market today and you'll see the basics of a high level point of sale system: bar code scanners, thermal receipt printers, cash drawers, pole displays, and cashier work stations.
But what sets this high-traffic, speed-oriented industry apart from other point of sale users is the need for fast and accurate scanning combined with precise weighing of products. That means you'll also want the best scanner and scale combination, capable of maintaining a high level of check-out speed without sacrificing accuracy.

Why cash is such a tough competitor; last cash markets « Non-Lin. I’ve been spending a bunch of time recently thinking about last cash markets – markets that are still dominated by cash payment – and how electronic payment can penetrate these markets.

The lack of connectivity with the point of acceptance is a huge issue for some of these verticals; low cost “back-channel” the point of acceptance is an absolute requirement for electronic payment to crack some of these markets.

Google goes for loyalty, not payments at the check-out.
French eftpos terminal manufacturer Ingenico has confirmed that it has been contracted by Google to provide retailer check-outs with NFC hardware capable of redeeming discount coupons downloaded over an Android phone. Ingenico CEO Philippe Lazare told AFP news agency that the kit will be used by Google during a series of live trials at selected retailers in New York and San Francisco. Earlier reports had assumed that the search engine giant was interested in expanding its remit to bricks and mortar payments. But Ingenico says the trials will instead focus on the willingness of consumers to redeem retailer tokens at the till.

Paypal X aka Paypal As A Platform, Objectives for 2011: Mobile, Offline and B2B. Last week, Paypal did its second developer conference called Paypal X Innovate 2010 aka Paypal As A Platform (you can find all the information on Twitter with the hashtag #XInnovate).
