We’re all abuzz with excitement -- there’s a new way to keep up with new developments in the payments industry. Buzzcasts is the new video series from the Payments Innovation Alliance, offering viewers fresh, hot takes on topics that will inform industry decision-making and the future of payments.
The inaugural episode, Emerging Payments: Part One, features Chris Colson, Director of Innovation, Federal Reserve Bank, Atlanta; Mark Dixon, AAP, APRP, NCP, Vice President, Education, NEACH and Andrew Gómez, Director, Lipis Advisors, discussing the latest trends in payments and what we can expect in the near future.

You won’t want to miss their perspectives on peer-to-peer payments, the pay-by-bank solutions growing in Europe and Asia, open banking-based payments, crypto-based solutions, central bank digital currencies and more.
Emerging payments are just part of the significant financial services disruption we have been seeing for the last decade, driven partly by the emergence of smartphone technology. Disruption in convergence is helping to reshape the nature of banking, including payments functions. 
Our panel weighs in on innovative ways to conduct financial transactions, including contactless payments, biometric technologies, the Internet of Things, wearables, QR codes and other methods that provide consumers with more secure, convenient and efficient ways to make payments.

To hear the engaging discussion, view the Buzzcast. We’ll periodically release new episodes on various topics featuring a spectrum of Alliance members.
