No one thought that the finance industry could be in the digital mode, as cash and coins were ruling the roost. First came the Internet banking and the real dynamics of the finance industry started changing. Peer-to-peer payment apps become the go-to-transaction way for consumers, as digital wallet solutions began making inroads in numerous customer-centric industries.
