What is the Role of Cryptocurrencies in the new Payments Landscape?

- Cryptocurrencies represent a move towards a cashless payment system with low transaction fees

- Cryptocurrency payments are much more secure than conventional online payment systems

- As the technology is better understood by the public, cryptocurrency payments will attract more users because the decentralized financial system creates a more transparent economic model

- One possible solution for mass popularization is to abate the fear of the volatility of cryptocurrencies by using fiat pegged coins (i.e. stable coins e.g. USDT), and/or calculating real-time price in fiat and then converting them to crypto at check-out points.

- Cryptocurrency payments will serve millions of unbanked people around the world

 - In order for mass popularization of cryptocurrency payments, better compliance with KYC and AML regulations are needed
