Will Talked Cryptocurrencies on PayPod: The Payments Industry Podcast

When it comes to the blockchain and cryptos, our co-founder Will Salisbury pretty much lives and breaths it. Recently, he had the opportunity to join another podcast as a guest to give a bit of a “cryptocurrency 101” crash course. The Podcast is called PayPod: The Payments Industry Podcast, and is hosted by Soar Payments LLC.

Will joined host Scott Hawksworth (yes, the other co-founder of Blockchain Decrypted) to give a bit of a 101 course on cryptos for payments industry professionals. While many in payments have been aware of bitcoin, widespread adoption is something that’s still forthcoming. Will’s championing of cryptos makes a fantastic case!

Some of the discussion highlights from the episode show notes:

  • What exactly cryptocurrencies are, and how they work via underlying blockchain technology and crypto mining.
  • Why payments industry professionals should be aware of cryptos… and why Will thinks they will achieve widespread adoption as a payment method.
  • Which cryptos Will thinks are worth following… aside from the most famous cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.
  • Why governments and businesses should keep an eye on (and will continue to validate) cryptocurrencies as viable currency.

The future of payments and currency will certainly involve cryptos… and payments industry professionals and FinTechs are taking notice.
