    LIVE at MONEY20/20EU - Scams- Are they really our fault?

    Over the last few years, online scams have become rife from social engineering to online dating and fake advertisements. With so much media attention, why are they still on the up? Is it time we took a step back and looked at the human element?  Sanjib Kalita and Micky Tesfaye sit down with Tim Burton and Chris Stevens from Callsign to discuss the art of the scam, why we naturally ignore the warning signs and how we’re so easily tricked.

    BNPL has become a vital payments channel

    BNPL has become a vital payments channel

    There are no questions around the popularity of BNPL.  It has been hailed as the payments product of GenZ and Millennials, but use by all generations has flourished over the last year.   The questions left around it are about whether it is a safe, smart, and fair credit product, or is it a path to bad credit?   Is this going to lead to a giant consumer debt issue, or is it a healthy alternative lending product that allows families and those with minimal access to credit to stretch their budgets?   We spoke with Gary Stein, Chief Product & Compliance Officer at Opy (and formerly with the CFPB) to bring some clarity to this, and one thing was clear.  BNPL isn't going anywhere.

    Is the Crypto Market Fundamentally Broken

    Is the Crypto Market Fundamentally Broken

    We are breaking from our typical format because of the intense news that is developing around the crypto markets, and how that is affecting businesses in that sector of the industry. We all know that the price of cryptocurrencies dropped. Bitcoin dove to a year low of $26284. Ethereum dove to $1792. Both seem to be stabilizing, but are very far from their beginning of the year highs. Even bigger are the stories about Luna and TerraUSD. TerraUSD is a stablecoin that is pegged to the USDollar, and managed to fall sharply under the $1 mark dragged down by Luna, which is the sister cryptocurrency. Luna has collapsed. As of this recording on May 12, 2022 at 3pm, it had dropped in value by 99% and is worth a little more than a penny.  This has caused a certain amount of chaos at different crypto businesses, and their consumers.
    Today, Sanjib Kalita, Nick Holland, Micky Tesfaye and Rachel Morrissey take a look at whether the nature of cryptocurrency is amenable to sustainable business models,  what type of oversight can crypto exchanges and businesses expect, and what this will mean for private and public stablecoins.

    Can Crypto Be Undone by Quantum?

    Can Crypto Be Undone by Quantum?

    Quantum computing is coming.  And that puts encryption in danger, because the ability to process long numbers will be so much faster and deeper in scope will be at the finger tips of major players.   Crypto currencies and blockchain technologies rely on distributed ledgers keeps value and contractual agreements on them safe without mediation now, but advances will need to be made in order to keep that ledger safe from corruptibility.   We spoke to Rhiddiman Das, the Founder and CEO of TripleBlind, about how they are approaching and preparing for the problems around data privacy and the encryption safety to understand more about what we can expect and how we might approach the solutions.
