NYPAY Hot Topics PLUS Networking

Free Interactive Webcast and Networking Event

Zoom Meeting


Setting the stage for a series of thought leader events over the next 12 months, our next event will cover three important industry topics selected in a survey of NYPAY Members. Between presentations participants will have the opportunity to network and discuss issues with other participants.

In our first presentation an industry leader will discuss how banking has morphed…how they see large banks, community banks and credit unions competing against fintech banks (challenger/neobanks). This presents the question of where do we go from here?

In the second presentation an industry expert will review the developing world of cryptocurrencies. What types of cryptos will win/lose and how will the winners be integrated into the payments landscape?

In the final presentation, a core processing specialist will discuss the future of legacy core banking platforms and cloud-based offerings. How will the cloud impact the banking industry?

Register today, and get an overview of these topics from industry expert speakers.


With special thanks to annual sponsor:
