Subsequently, there is no wonder why these questions have caught the attention of many major banking institutions for the past several years, along with the GAFA giants. Some answers were swift with the launch of Apple Pay & Google Pay. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) is in the midst of refining the Libra cryptocurrency, and Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) recently announced its palm payment technology, which lets shoppers at physical stores pay for their purchases by scanning the palm of their hand.
