Navin Gupta, Ripple

Today in many countries we can send a payment locally with just a phone number or email address – so why can’t companies do the same internationally?

Navin Gupta, MD of Ripple for South Asia and MENA, speaks with DigFin’s Jame DiBiasio about the technological and business race to solve this massive problem.

He talks about the challenges, the benefits of a blockchain-based solution, the impact if we see central-bank digital currencies appear, dealing with regulators, and Ripple’s progress.
