Mobile Wallets with Mark Hopkins

February 15 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Mobile Wallets

What’s in your wallet?

The better question might be, do you even need a physical wallet anymore? The “Don’t leave home without it” tagline resonates more with your phone than your go-to credit card.

With the rise in mobile payment technology, apps like Android Pay, Apple Pay, and Google Wallet provide access to real-time data allowing more opportunities for content and engagement. Beyond just transferring funds, blockchain technology could make it possible for these digital wallets to handle transactions like buying a car or house to distributing payroll. Discover more about this cashless society movement from early adopter and industry analyst, Mark ‘Rizzn’ Hopkins, a futurist and blockchain evangelist.
