We are always transacting money in one form or another, for one reason or another. The year of 2016 has demonstrated and reinforced the importance and ubiquitousness of payments. We saw the launch of UPI (Unified Payments Interface) to make inter-bank transactions simpler. We also witnessed turmoil and transition in the Indian economy following the demonetization of large currency notes.
Overall, 2016 has left us with several questions about the payments landscape:
These, and many more questions, raise hopes and doubts about the payments ecosystem.
50p is an intervention in this landscape. Our goal is to help stakeholders understand the existing system, and to network and collaborate with each other as payment systems in India and across the world evolve in the coming years.
50p is not just a conference. It is an attempt to build a larger community whose members will learn from each other, and collaborate in negotiating the payments ecosystem in efforts ranging from building payment solutions to securing individual privacy.
Who should attend 50p conf?
What you should expect from the first edition?
The first edition of 50p is a learning conference with talks and discussions covering three broad areas:
How do payment systems work in India and elsewhere? What are the costs of transactions under different systems for merchants and customers? What regulations surround each system and how do these impact adoption?
Here, we will learn about NEFT, IMPS, SWIFT, wallets, banking systems, cross border funds, and systems part of the payments mesh.
50p is a two-track conference consisting of talks, Birds of Feather (BoF) sessions and demos.
Speakers will include practitioners who have had experience working in the payments ecosystem – including working with governments, regulatory bodies and banks, and creators of technology solutions and products for payments.
