Industry Event: Open Source Summit
Session: Advancing Financial Inclusion Through Open Source Payment Models  | October 26 @ 6:30 – 7:20 PM UTC

Digital payments have been driving much of the digital economy growth and financial inclusion in developing countries. However, the payment ecosystem remains lacking a shared financial infrastructure that will allow interoperability between different payment system providers and drive more adoption and innovation to merchants and consumers. In light of this, more work and collaboration needed to achieve the intended vision.

The session led by Mojaloop Foundation Chair, Konstantin Peric and Executive Director, Paula Hunter, will discuss the challenges and open source opportunities to drive digital payments innovation further. This talks will examine:

  • The challenges in realizing financial inclusion through payments models and how might we collectively address these issues with open source.
  • What’s missing from today’s payment infrastructure and how open-source payment models could help drive more innovation.
  • How open source can faster adoption of secure, affordable digital payments and, at the same time allow enough interoperability in the payment ecosystem.
