Cashing Out? The Mobile Money Makeover!

Presented by The Mobile Alliance & MoMo Singapore
Description
A blockbusting panel to kick-start the year and help set the roadmap for all mCommerce thinking in 2014!
A short, sharp and savvy debate on the old world of "Money" – and how it's facing radical change in the face of consumer pressure to free-up easier ways to pay and exchange finances, both to businesses and peers alike.
A thought-provoking discussion will take a walk through this highly sensitive topic:

> What do people want to do with mobile money services? Are Cards still in the game?
> Your Banking Apps: joined-up thinking or clunky corporate clutter 'the best and the worst'.
> Privacy & Security! An obvious problem, but does it have any clear solutions too?
> Great industry disasters? Is NFC really 'Not For Commerce' and will mobile wallets ever work?
> Bitcoin bonanza. In a world based on banks, has this digital currency disrupted everybody?
You, the audience, will be left to answer (and vote) on one simple question:
The Proposition: “Mobile Money and Bitcoin will overtake Cards and Cash within a decade.”

Expert Panellists include:

1. Scott Bales - Author, Speaker & Entrepreneur
2. Autumn Radtke - CEO at First Meta (SG based bitcoin exchange)

Opponents
3. Michael Weatherseed - CARTES Secure Connexions Asia
