Dapp is a payment wallet that uses QR codes and biometrics to make payments faster and more secure for Mexicans. One of the things I love about fintech is how much innovation is taking place all over the world. Mexico, and LatAm more generally, is one of those places that fintech is taking off.
Dapp is a fascinating story as they are creating a payments ecosystem outside the traditional payments rails. Users and merchants can use digital wallets to send money or pay for purchases. Antonio explains how the Dapp ecosystem works, why this payments ecosystem has eliminated the fear of fraud, trying times early on in the pandemic, raising capital, and a whole lot more. I hope you enjoy the show.
