Transactions on a digital device grew from $4.1T in 2019 to $5.2T in 2020, accelerated in part by the pandemic. Digital access allowed consumers to get what they needed when they needed it most, thanks to the innovative minds behind startups and fintechs worldwide.
„At Visa, we are making our network available to drive inclusive economic growth with the goal to give everyone, everywhere access to the global economy. As part of our purpose to enable people to seamlessly move money around the world, Visa opened the door to nearly 2,000 global startups around the world to share their brilliant digital solutions to solve challenges on how we pay, save, and invest — driving accessibility for more people,” the company says.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
