Once created, the digital identity can be stored as a biometric hash on an enterprise server or immutably in a private or public blockchain.

Cross-border payments account for roughly 40% of global payments fees, generating 15 times the revenue of the average retail domestic payment. While traditional cross-border payment models have been successfully processing millions of payments a year, emerging models and frameworks will dramatically change the world of cross-border payments, promising to improve processes, costs, and the customer experience.
This session will answer three key questions:
1. What are the drivers and trends affecting the cross-border payments ecosystem?
2. Are traditional cross‑border payment services adequately positioned for today’s challenges?
3. How are emerging cross-border payment models creating innovation from inefficiency?
