The digital economy has experienced quite an upturn in the past months. The coronavirus pandemic has had quite a part to play in it as well but also the digital payment platforms have upped their game with the opportunity arriving.

Covid-19 also has its fair share of credit for moving digital technology adoption further. The COVID-19 Wave: Payment Systems and the Further Possibilities explores this in much greater detail. We hope that digital payment rather becomes a norm and not a seasonal trend.
