On any given day there are multiple forces shaping the payments industry. In this episode, the IPA’s government relations team takes a look at the latest developments in cryptocurrencies, interchange, and at the Federal Reserve.
First, the Biden Administration has launched a whole of government effort to look at the role of cryptocurrencies in the United States with an executive order.
Second, a lawsuit by retailers to lower interchange was dismissed by the courts.
Finally, the nomination of Sarah Bloom Raskin to the Federal Reserve was publicly opposed by Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
We delve into the details of these three events and what they might mean for the payments industry as a whole.
If you want to keep up with the changes in the payments industry, then make plans to join us in Washington DC for the Innovative Payments Conference from April 12-14. See the agenda and register here: IPC 2022 - Innovative Payments Association (ipa.org).
