Marieke Flament, MD of Europe at Circle explains how a revolution, led by technology companies, is changing the way we exchange money. People around the world have benefited from the ability to share and discover content and communicate freely over the internet. The benefits to humanity of this ability to communicate quickly, without charge and instantly is really hard to even quantify. Today we can share messages, experiences, photos and videos with one another in an instant, wherever they are on the the other side of the world. This communication is instant, open, global and free. Why shouldn’t money work the same way? According to Juniper, the value of global person-to-person (P2P) mobile payments is set to increase by 40%, to $540 billion, by the end of 2017.
