In our world today, 1.4 billion people remain unbanked and locked out of traditional financial systems that could expand their economic participation, flexibility, and potential.
According to Briana Marbury, CEO and President of the Interledger Foundation, “We have global financial systems that billions of people have been historically excluded from participating in, but through technological innovation, there’s an opportunity to make previously inaccessible systems more inclusive and interoperable.”
