As mentioned in this conversation, one of the main channels for Instant Payment will be Mobile. In fact Mobile is one of the key drivers of Instant payment or real time payments, across the globe.
As per ‘Blueprint for an Instant Payment Infrastructure Solution’ the suggestion of having a centralized directory services which stores customer account proxies like Mobile number, is mentioned as Value added service. I think having a pan-European centralized
directory service is necessary for Instant Payment’s success in Europe.
b**t! Mobile is just a platform or a device. For me instant goes beyond what platform ones uses and even beyond a local market. Instant payment should go like the internet: real settled on a globalmarket and in all currencies. And you know? THAT technology
is ready and working: global cross-currency FX integrated, free or reaaaal cheap, and instant COMPLETELY settled within 2 to 5 seconds. Developed to become a global standard for value exchange.... Just follow the news on ripplelabs.com and earthport.com .....
