Kevin Johnson

VP Sales - Transact


2020 was a standout year for the digital banking and payments industry, with the total transaction value projected of payments to reach $4.9 trillion. Consolidation was also widespread, with 63 acquisitions worth a total of $158, according to data by S&P Global. Big Tech continued to pose a threat in the fintech space, with Whatsapp beginning to offer payments in India and Google Pay adding support at 89 new banks. This competitiveness will not slow down, as the fintech industry grows by a projected 400 by 2025, according to Statistia. How can digital and legacy banks alike compete?
