The Future of Money is Dependent on the Transparency of Data - Tradeshift The Future of Money is Dependent on the Transparency of Data - Tradeshift Today I’m speaking at the Future of Money & Technology summit. This of course is an area, I’m highly passionate about, and even more so of the topic on which I’m speaking “Big data and the cost of money”. I find it ironic that we are currently obsessed with how we pay for goods. Take for example Square, Google Wallet, Mobile, NFC, etc. when paying probably is one of the most efficient infrastructures created by man.
New Payment APIs: a Survey of Innovation, Pride, and Suspicion New Payment APIs: a Survey of Innovation, Pride, and Suspicion Exchanging currency for items or services is such an old time tradition and yet there are so many ways it can be done. I’ve just taken a stroll through the payment systems neighborhood and I’ve felt inspiration from the innovators FaceCash & Dwolla, pride in my home state operator PowerPay, and murky suspicion toward JunglePay. The innovators in payment systems are web savvy, nimble operations that are pushing the envelope in today’s payment system culture. FaceCash’s core function is the ability to instantly and easily transfer money person to person.

Google/TXVIA « FinVentures 3 April 2012 Congrats to Google and the TXVIA team. Given that Google is a client of mine I’m not going to comment on anything specific here.. but clearly this deal significantly expands the reach of Google at the POS. No longer will Google Wallet be dependent on a few thousand NFC phones in market. Google/TXVIA « FinVentures
The Five Faceless Companies That Control Your Money - Business Insider In late March, a payments processor called Global Payments experienced an enormous security breach, and 1.5 million credit and debit cards from Visa and MasterCard were compromised in the process. As a consumer, this must be at least a little bewildering. Your bank’s name is on the card. Visa or MasterCard’s logo is on it. Who the hell is Global Payments and why did they get to build the sloppy security protocols that led to my data being compromised? It’s not a bad question, after all.

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. When putting together a grocery store point of sale system, the choice of hardware and software is based on whether the store will include just one lane or multiple lanes for customer checkout.

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. Some of these markets (vending, taxis, paid parking) are huge (measured in billions). 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. I was grateful when my friends at put me on the hot seat with five questions about the topic. You can find their full Briefing Room on last cash markets here.
