July 2020 - Fintech Summit LatAm
On July 30, Ling Wu, Co-Chairman of the CBSG Consortium and CEO & Founder of TBCASoft will speak about:
- Blockchain and the New Era in Fintech Services for Mobile Operators
- How TBCASoft and the CBSG Consortium enable New Growth and Business Models
This conference focuses on the importance of solid, cross-country digital financial strategies for the LatAm region. CCPS is an ideal solution as an open mobile payment network which interconnects siloed networks, carriers, payment providers, consumers and merchants through a secure, decentralized technology that facilitates instant transaction clearing and settlement.
On May 4, IBM and TBCASoft published a joint white paper. COVID-19 is accelerating consumer preference for contactless payments and Mobile Service Providers are ideally positioned. Service Providers should launch contactless payment services enabled by TBCASoft's Cross Carrier Payment System and join the CBSG Consortium that greatly expands the user and merchant base for their payment service -- it accelerates the network effect to a global scale.
The paper was co-authored by:
- Ling Wu, Founder and CEO, TBCASoft and Co-Chairman of the CBSG Consortium
- Wei Chen, CFO and Head of Global Business Development, TBCASoft
- Utpal Mangla, VP and Senior Partner, IBM Services Innovation Competency, Telecom, Media, and Entertainment (TM&E)
