Key Discussions from Last Year
Stripe and Wise Join Forces: Empowering Open Banking
John Collison, Co-Founder and President of Stripe, announced their partnership with Wise for delegated authentication, a feature that streamlines transaction authentication for customers reducing friction and enhancing the user experience.
However, experts emphasised the need for further execution and improvements to make open banking truly worthwhile.
El Salvador's Bitcoin Leap
Cryptocurrency was another prominent subject.
The decision by El Salvador to accept Bitcoin as legal tender drew attention and raised questions about its potential impact on financial stability.
Industry leaders, including Peter Smith, CEO & Co-Founder of Blockchain.com, discussed the importance of establishing rules and regulations to protect citizens and mitigate illicit activities.
Despite concerns, experts like Anne Boden, Founder & CEO of Starling Bank, expressed optimism that with enhanced regulations and safety protocols, the focus could shift back to promoting the technology while ensuring user safety.
