Blockchain-based payments - whether supporting cryptocurrency, stablecoins or central bank digital currencies - have finally come of age. In this workshop, we will look at the history of “digital coins” and explore why Bitcoin created a breakthrough in this space. Then we begin with the fundamentals of today’s blockchain-based payments, starting with key definitions and characteristics, the value chains for these systems, the stakeholders who support and use them, and core technology. We will explore these fundamentals further as we look at examples of cryptocurrencies, stablecoins and central bank digital currencies. The workshop concludes with a discussion of some important trends and experiments in this space.

As new forms of digital payments begin to take hold, the old assumptions no longer work. What does it mean to issue a card when there is no card? How can transactions be risk managed when payments credentials are masked and scrambled by design? And what is the impact on secondary applications designed to depend on the presence of card data? Join us to delve into these topics and more.

Faster Payments has been used to describe many payments systems over the years. Today the industry is looking at the notion of real time retail payment systems that allow consumers and businesses to pay each other 24/7/365 by moving money from one bank account to another as the definition of a “faster payment”. In this workshop, we begin with an overview of the key concepts and building blocks for these systems. We then look at some of the recent developments in domestic systems around the globe. We conclude by examining how these systems are being used across all payment domains and the overlay technologies supporting this expansion.

The point of sale in the United States is in the early stages of a multi-year period of dramatic change. We are simultaneously witnessing a major shift in baseline technology – the move from mag stripe devices to chip (EMV) and NFC-capable equipment, and a shift in technology and business models which are moving many merchants, including major ones, away from terminals entirely. Join us for an insightful day exploring the transformations at the point of sale.
