NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- From the early days of trading, to the last century when we moved from cash to credit cards, money has always been evolving. Today, we're speeding towards a world of "digital money." That includes everything from making payments through your mobile phone to using a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. Digital is letting us pay and get paid faster and with less impediments – whether it's a robo-advisor managing your wealth or an app to let you transfer money to a friend's account. Technology tools including biometric devices, behavioral and predictive analytics, artificial intelligence and deep machine learning as well as the emerging Internet of Things are all playing a role in transforming the economy to a digital one.
Living in Digital Times is proud to announce that the Digital Money Forum presented by Mastercard will return to CES® 2017.
