  • Reflections: Back to the Future - (Scott Loftesness) - "Today, Glenbrook celebrates its 15th birthday. It’s been quite a journey – an amazing one in so many ways – yet it also sometimes feels like we’re still on Day One! There’s so much happening in payments – and, more broadly, in commerce, financial inclusion, and crypto currencies!"
  • How the Shift from Swiping to Inserting Cards Will Accelerate Mobile Payments - AdvertisingAge - "I tested out my theory with a local clerk at my favorite retailer who confirmed he is seeing an uptick in mobile payments because it is easier than waiting for the insert process."

  • BAML prepping blockchain-powered trade finance test - Financial News - “A lot of the benefits of blockchain are still being conceived. As we move into live prototyping, we will aim to prove out the business case."
  • A Better Way to Control the Banks - New York Times - "Even so, the capital requirements are not strong enough, in part because they do not require banks to fully account for potential losses from the trading of derivatives, a multitrillion-dollar activity."
