Digital identity and blockchain, with Dave Birch

In the latest episode of Rebank, Will Beeson hosts Dave Birch, where the topic of discussion is digital identity, fraud and authentication.

Today we’re thrilled to welcome Dave Birch to the podcast. Dave is director of innovation at Consult Hyperion, a secure electronic transactions consultancy. He is an internationally recognised thought leader in digital identity and digital money, and has been named one of the global top 15 best sources of business information by Wired, one of the top 10 most influential voices in banking by the Financial Brand, one of the top three most influential people in London’s fintech community by City A.M, and more. Dave is perhaps Europe’s most influential commentator on emerging payments and adjacent subject areas, including digital identity, blockchain and privacy.

This episode is a timely follow-on to recent episodes with Pascal Bouvier (episode 22) and Taqanu founder Balazs Nemethi (episode 23), both of which raised the topic of digital identity. When it comes to digital identity and the technologies required to support its implementation, few are as knowledgeable as Dave Birch.

You can listen to more episodes of Rebank, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
