Legal Cannabis—The Money Problem

Thursday, July 25, 2019
at the offices of K&L Gates LLP
599 Lexington Ave, New York, NY 10022

 

Cash is disappearing. We still use it for small ticket items—coffee, snacks—how many of us use cash for something costing $30, $50, or $100? Few.

But there is an alternative world where cash is still king, and that world is not one of crime. It is the world of legal cannabis. Thirty states have legalized cannabis for medical or recreational purposes, but the federal government still regards marijuana as a drug on the par of heroin. And this creates a world where people can open stores and sell products, but cannot get bank accounts and must pay their taxes with bags of cash.

How are consumers, companies, and states dealing with this? How likely is legislative change?

Join NYPAY for a drink and lively discussion of this increasingly prominent topic.

Why Open is the Future of Banking

Wednesday, September 25, 2019
at the offices of DWT
1251 Avenue of the Americas, 21st Floor, New York, NY 10020

 

The term Open Banking has been in the news for a few years, and what it means is straightforward: the use of open APIs to enable third-party developers to build applications and services around the financial institution, and greater financial transparency options for account holders. The idea behind Open Banking has been creeping into the financial services world for a while, with firms like Mint that pull and aggregate your financial data. But they were doing it through the back door. Open Banking offers front door access to information. But what does it mean for bankers, fintechs, and consumers? What can we learn from the UK, where regulations already require banks to cooperate with authorized third-parties? What will it look like in the US?

Payments in a Mobile World

Wednesday, October 16, 2019
at the offices of Deloitte
30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112

 

Our world is becoming more and more mobile—communications, shopping, work is all being done from mobile devices; today a phone, maybe a watch; soon something else wearable and the vehicle you ride in. How can payment providers create value and find opportunities in this world?

Leading retailers and technology companies have set a high bar—consumers are used to seamless payments for most daily transactions. Consumers will expect an integrated, private, and secure way to pay when engaging with the evolving mobility ecosystem that moves them and their goods about—whether for a bike rental, a taxi ride, a package pickup, or a food delivery.

Join NYPAY for drinks and discussion of a topic that grows ever more important. We’ll look at how payment providers are navigating the changes, leveraging current technology and expertise, and partnering with mobility companies.

Your Body as a Better Password: The Rise of Biometrics @ Davis Wright Tremaine
Nov 26 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Your Body as a Better Password: The Rise of Biometrics

Tuesday, November 26, 2019
at the offices of DWT
1251 Avenue of the Americas, 21st Floor, New York, NY 10020

 

Last November 11th was China’s ”Singles Day,” the world’s largest shopping event, and more than 60% of those consumers paid with either a fingerprint or by taking a selfie. Biometrics replace passwords and are more convenient, safer and more secure than other authentication methods. But is it all good news? Biometrics last a lifetime. What if yours is stolen? What if the biometric doesn’t work? And what about privacy?

Join NYPAY for a lively conversation with industry experts about types of biometrics, advantages, limitations and challenges for each; techniques to foil fraudsters, best practices for employing biometrics in payments, the emerging regulatory environment, e.g. “Biometric Information Privacy Act.”
