“The benefits of this new hardware and software paradigm will prove as important as the introduction of the computer chip,” said Tim Sloane, VP, Payments Innovation, and author of report. “While adoption in larger merchants may take decades due to the complexity of the payments infrastructure, the path to adoption will clarify as network implementations further mitigate security risks. As security risks are addressed merchants, acquirers, and banks will focus their energies on delivering greater value to consumers through the smartphone.”
