Last week in Paris, we were at the EMEA PYMNTS FORUM hosted by PYMNTS in collaboration with Le Monde, which took place at the scenic Pavillon Royal. Babatunde Okufi, Group Head for Business at Interswitch Purepay (Transaction Switching & Payment Processing) featured in an insightful panel discussion featuring Ledger, sticky.io, Mercuryo and Interswitch Group.
We shared perspectives on Interswitch's initiatives focused on Blockchain & DLT technology over the last 5 years and looking into the near-future, including strategic partnerships with Microsoft and Interstellar Inc., outlining the directional evolution of our blockchain innovation strategy premised on the strategic intent of developing native, proprietary enterprise-grade distributed ledger technology that is practically tailored to the African context and enables us to progressively digitize multiple industry value-chains across African markets
In other news, we're thrilled to announce that at the forum, Interswitch was recognized as an EMEA60 Leader by PYMNTS, a global leader in payments news and analytics. The EMEA60 companies were selected based on their influence among fintech companies in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
