“A new payment service can only succeed if it provides tangible value to a broad range of market participants (e.g., banks, payment service providers, merchants, end-users), which tend to have conflicting needs and objectives. There are a couple of examples of good UK payment services that failed to take-off due to lack of buy-in from key market participants. To address the conflicting views of the market participants there needs to be a platform/venue that enables the market participants to reach a solution that is desirable as a whole. I have joined the Digital Pound Foundation because I believe that the DPF is very well positioned to play this moderator role that is so much needed to the success of the digital Pound.” – Alexandre Neves
