Interestingly, the influence of Gen Z on the future of payments was also discussed. Gen Z, the digital natives armed with smartphones and short attention spans, are leading the charge towards a future of frictionless payments. They demand speed, convenience, and security, which are becoming the benchmarks for payment experiences. Vijay also pointed out that the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this trend, leading to a paradigm shift with card-not-present transactions becoming the new norm.
