Are payments in Asia headed for a quantum leap?
Payment technology and population adoption are set to explode in Asia, as the market looks set to build upon massive quantum leaps in connectivity, telephony, platform technology and disruptions to how people are engaging with the banking system. With mobile wallet adoption outstripping traditional card use in many geographies, an entirely new payments rail has opened up, but change has been uneven across the region. Marqeta CRO Omri Dahan looks at the technological investments that could bring about a more unified system of payments technology in Asia, the transformative possibilities inherent in getting the formula right and how this will radically affect the business model in payments moving forward.

Still dominant, how do card schemes self-disrupt? 
With the advent of super apps and national instant payments clearing systems branching out into retail, what is the outlook for the card schemes in 2019? National card schemes still dominate but alternative payments or shifts in the value chain is creating a state of flux.

The top moments from The Payments Race!
To make an impact to the world, you need to have a technological argument, and economic argument... and buy in from society.

Over the past Money20/20 events, we have pitched various payment methods against each other in a race to get from one city to another, using only one form of payment, to test how payments work in realty.

Who would have thought you could get across America using only Gold? Or you could buy pho with Bitcoin in Vietnam? Or a taxi with a ring? This session will share the top moments from the race.
