Dismantling the Cryptocurrency Hype, Bit by Bit(coin)

The headlines might revolve around cryptocurrencies, but where there’s smoke, is there substance? PYMNTS’ Karen Webster weighs in on the need to approach the Wild West of cryptos with a measured mindset and views the speculation for what it is: dangerous (Why It’s Time To Shut Down Cryptocurrencies).

 

The Regulatory Conundrum

Even while regulation might be in order for, say, cryptocurrencies (to give the Emperor at least some clothes), rules, laws and bylaws are no catch-all solution when it comes to fixing what’s broken in other arenas, such as with credit agencies. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, but if it is broke, (maybe) don’t legislate it (Why Regulation Won’t Fix Credit Reporting Agencies).

 

Data Makes the World Go Round

You want numbers? We’ve got numbers. Start with a benchmark of conversion rates for merchants large and small, giving a snapshot of eCommerce globally — hey, it’s not ALL Amazon, you know (Benchmarking of the checkout conversion rates for the 753 merchants that drive 75 percent of non-Amazon eCommerce sales — online and mobile — quarterly). Interested in the hard stuff (no, we’re not talking cocktail hour)? Then head to the Global Cash Index (Global analysis and reporting on the usage of cash around the world). The future’s writ large, too, with bits and bytes, and should you want a commerce crystal ball, be mindful of How We Will Pay (What connected devices do you own today? How do you use them to pay? How might you like to use them to pay in the future? We asked, and all we got back were 6 million data points.)

 

That’s just a taste of what we’ve got. Beyond that, look below. Find your bailiwick. And then go make conversation.
