Romex Jha, CEO International of ZB Group, served as a moderator for a panel discussion that took place on March 21st during the AIBC Dubai Summit. The panel was about the necessity of payment providers for the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies in a fruitful debate with other key leaders in the cryptocurrency space.
Paving the way with Payment Providers: the future of digital currencies
There was a broad consensus among the panelists that there is a possibility for crypto to be accepted on a large scale; but the process requires far more moving pieces than the market is now able to accommodate. Currently, the most popular trading pair in crypto is BTC to USDT, and its popularity continues to grow.
Payment providers play a crucial role in fueling this growth. Furthermore, ensuring that supply and demand for crypto are aligned. In spite of this, the discourse has advanced significantly in a short amount of time. If it continues to advance at this rate, it will be intriguing to watch where the industry stands in a few short years.
AIBC Dubai platformed discussions on how tools such as payment providers could contribute to Mass Adoption
Gaming, social networks, internet security, and brand presence on social media were all discussed at the conference. The Summit strived to leave attendees with new ideas and insights regarding the industry’s near future. This even included Akon, the world-famous pop star and creator of Akoin, who was a special guest at the event. His pioneering work in spearheading the future of Blockchain in Africa has left its mark on the entire continent with his debut of the Akoin MasterCard being a tangible example of payment providers leading the charge on Mass Adoption.
AIBC is not limited to its audience in the Middle East. Conventions will be hosted in Toronto, Malta, Belgrade, and Nairobi between 2022 and 2023, among others. If this indicates anything, it is that the Bitcoin-aligned conversations taking place in Dubai are in high demand around the world. Thus, it reflects well on the future of the industry.
As the event expands in scope, so does the extent of the dialogues. 47% of AIBC Dubai attendees are decision-makers in this sector, indicating the importance of the event and the people who are participating in it. In spite of the fact that Europe has the most prominent decision makers influencing the digital age, the involvement from policy-makers of Developing countries will definitely begin to balance out as knowledge expands.
From the perspective of ZB – the nature of crypto discussions has undoubtedly shifted
At one time, there were real questions about whether or not cryptocurrency could be used on a global scale. Now, discussions are based on the many steps that can be taken for this to happen. The way people debate has changed. Before, the question was always “if” this could happen. Now, the questions are “when” and “how.”
There is a presumption that crypto will attain the heights that people originally doubted it could get. As a result, conversations are becoming increasingly pragmatic. Considering where crypto will go next, the future holds a wealth of opportunities for cryptocurrency.
It’s hard to say what its next move will be on the market. It is still growing at an exponential rate and hundreds of new cryptocurrencies are coming out all the time. But it will definitely need a breakthrough like the ones platformed at AIBC before. At the end of the day, one thing is for sure: a future based on crypto is closer than it has ever been.
