Episode Description

It's all too easy in this era of instant gratification and mobile internet access to say that payments should move at the speed of lightening. But building mobile payment apps and wallets on top of the antiquated system of traditional money means that you are building high speed trains for low speed rails. So, how do we implement a foundation that can keep the system secure, but not create a drag on the innovation? Today, Brett is hosting Chris Larsen, Co-Founder and CEO of Ripple Labs and Suresh Ramamurthi, Chairman CBW Bank to discuss restructuring the system of money movement and making immediate payment transactions a reality.
