Last week we saw a major relaunch of Google Wallet at Google I/O. See
Short Blog. I wanted to follow up on the last point I made in Bank ID Service – What Is It?
Some US Banks are refusing to jump on board SRC. As managers of risk, Banks are reluctant to accept network services which level the playing field in both managing risk and “diluting” their brand.… In some respects Authentify is a response to SRC.
This is a continuation thought from 3 blogs I put together last year: ACH, A2A and Marketing Incentives, Acceptance Part 1 and A2A – Threat to V/MA? A great part of blogging is getting feedback. While I’m long in the tooth, I’m not the deep expert in every area. Writing blogs usually leads to feedback from the experts.
Question for today. IF a new payment scheme were developed for eCommerce what are the hurdles to acceptance?
Apologize in advance for typos.. did not proof yet
Congrats to Early Warning and their participating banks in the Launch of the Authentify wallet! A service 6 yrs in the making and driven by my good friend and former EWS president Eric Woodward.
A continuation of my blog on Digital Dollar and CBDCs (Mar 2021). Conflict in the Ukraine and the economic sanctions on Russia, central banks and payment systems have created a “weaponization” of the USD. As a result, I see the China’s digital yuan taking off in next 18 months beginning with energy related payments with the middle east. While not impacting consumer payment networks, the shift will substantially impact USD hegemony and ability to impair funds flow of participating markets and geographies.
Today’s blog is part 2 to my 2016 post Transaction Costs and Value Orchestration in Commercial Networks. The “Big Picture” questions I’m trying to answer today are:
- How are bank products impacted by expansion of network services and change in consumer behavior?
- How likely is it that there will be an end run around V/MA or a new operating model that competes with them?
- Given banks are the creators of the most successful commercial networks, what actions will they likely take?
- Is there a new model (ie DeFi or CDBCs) that completely changes how we think about networks and money.
