In this episode of Around The Coin, Brian and Faisal talk about Apple Pay and the recently introduced Android Pay. We also discuss the merits of incorporating the Loyalty program (always the low hanging fruit).
We talked about how ad-blocking technology is going to affect revenue for large companies like Google who depend on ad-revenue. How difficult it is for existing advertising paradigms to exist.
