Jonathan and I sat down with our colleague, Stan Koppel, on Thursday, April 13th to discuss the intersection of payment systems and banks. Stan joined Bryan Cave LLP following a 28-year stint with VISA, where he was originally the third lawyer employed. In this episode of The Bank Account, Stan shares his background and touches on what’s working now and what’s ahead in the payments world for financial institutions.

Topics covered include banking the unbanked, tokenization, the blockchain and machine learning! Preview of a hot take from Stan… “blockchain is more distracting than disruptive.”
