Mobile Payments and Blockchain Disruption: Glance Technologies

Technology is taking control of almost all the daily basis actions. Immediate, security and easy to use are the dogma that software developers follow all around the world. In the economic matter, these principles are even taken to the utmost.

Taken the example of the money exchange. A few years ago, credit cards were something that most people even were afraid of, mainly because of the massive change it was about to implement. Physical money gave his way to a new board-base card, with actually more use than the money itself.

But transactions weren’t fast enough, and actual technology development allows an even faster transaction method. From the card to the centre of a person’s life, the smartphone. Introducing payment options in the devices will save some time and, at the same instance, effort. Making transactions faster and little less painful.

With the disruption of the blockchain, these payments can become even safer, as this distributed ledger based can record every transaction and has stronger and safer security measures. Therefore, joining up blockchain and Mobile apps payments were just a matter of time.

At Vancouver based Glance Technologies, they have accepted the challenge.
