Episode 192 – The Rising Value of Rich Account Data with George Throckmorton, Nacha
The Payments Network that Moves Data, Not Money
Take a listen to Yvette Bohanan and George Peabody as they speak with George Throckmorton, Senior Director at Nacha and the head of Nacha’s Phixius data network initiative.
Payments networks are remarkable constructions. They bring competitors together around a common set of rules and capabilities that then move millions of transactions a day and untold billions in value. That’s the network effect.
