Following rplan to the stage is Pockets United:
“Social is the next big thing in mobile payments, yet you cannot downgrade it to a simple, on-top feature for existing PSPs nor banks. A category killer in this field must be social by design.
This means cutting-edge user experience and fund to use in day-to-day scenarios. This space is hot. Carriers see their business threatened by all-encompassing data flats, while traditional banks and credit card companies see payment shifting to mobile devices, whose users are owned by carriers.
Pockets United sits right in the center of this clashing zone, offering a helping hand to both sides.”
