Building reliable payment systems and services

Building reliable payment systems and services

About the conference

This is a payments conference, with focus on the following topics:

  1. UPI is a year old. What are the challenges and opportunities for developers, PSPs, regulators, banks and other stakeholders in the ecosystem? How has UPI fared in the past one year – technically, in terms of user experience, and building trust with consumers and merchants to further the digital payments ecosystem?
  2. Interoperability: where we want to discuss how technology for interoperability interacts with regulations, not only in India, but also across the world.
  3. Blockchain: and its relationship – as practiced – with trust, decentralization and security.
  4. Digital payments, grievance redressal and trust: how do we build an open ecosystem where consumers develop trust in digital payments, and not drop off because of experiences with money lost in the pipeline.

Target Audience:

  1. Developers
  2. Product managers.
  3. Teams and representatives from banks.
  4. Representatives from regulatory bodies.
  5. Representatives from payment companies and startups.

You don't need blockchain

Submitted May 26, 2017

A short talk on why you don’t need blockchain. This won’t go into the details of what a blockchain is or how it works, but point out why blockchain is not the magical silver bullet to your payment problems and how you can survive without it.

Outline

The talk can be summarized by the image in this tweet: https://twitter.com/disruptepreneur/status/755857596423077888

If you are a bank or a FinTech company not dealing with bitcoins or ether, you don’t need blockchain*. The talk will go over the details of when you should consider blockchains and when you are better off without them.
