Online Payments Firms to Gather at CES 2017

From the early days of trading, to the last century when we moved from cash to credit cards, money has always been evolving. Today, we’re speeding towards a world of “digital money.” That includes everything from making payments through your mobile phone to using a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. Digital is letting us pay and get paid faster and with less impediments – whether it’s a robo-advisor managing your wealth or an app to let you transfer money to a friend’s account. Technology tools including biometric devices, behavioral and predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and deep machine learning as well as the emerging Internet of Things are all playing a role in transforming the economy to a digital one.
