In this week’s episode we talk to David Birch, the author of “Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin”, The Currency Cold War, and Identity is the New Money about all things identity, digital assets and the future of Crypto. Dave is one of the world’s preeminent experts on payments tech globally as well. But when we get into how AIs will make payments and hold bank accounts, it gets very interesting indeed.
Future of Payments and Identity with David Birch
I’m Dave Birch. I’m an author, advisor and commentator on digital financial services (and a few other things besides). I hope I’m known as a decent writer, an excellent public speaker, a recognised international thought leader in digital identity and digital money, a valuable board-level advisor, a respected media commentator, a well-read blogger (I write one of the world’s top 100 fintech blogs) and an inveterate tweeter.
I’ve consulted to some of the world’s biggest banks, financial services organisations, telecommunications providers, IT companies and others about the future of electronic transactions of all kinds. I am fortunate to have been invited to speak at events all around the world and on radio, TV and digital media with global coverage as you can see from this short video.
