US Crypto Payments

How $10.4 Billion in Transactions Is Upending B2B, Retail, and Remittances

Executive Summary

Cryptocurrencies are now a mainstream—albeit volatile—investment tool. But blockchain-based payments are just beginning to catch on. Over the coming years, we expect growing use of cryptos for retail, cross-border remittances, and B2B payments. Incumbent banks and payment networks must carefully weigh crypto opportunities against risks to ride the crypto wave—without getting swept up in the crash.

  2. How are crypto payment trends affecting legacy payments players’ revenues, competitive positioning, and performance?
  3. How can banks and payment networks leverage these trends to benefit from crypto payment volume growth?
