Real World Adoption in Blockchain Payments



Rolf Hagg l Bit Pay


About the Presentation:

The presentation will review blockchain payments, what options are available for the blockchain-to-bank gap, and include real world use cases in action. 


About the Speaker:

Mr. Hagg's career spans over 15 years in Global Payments. He has built global FinTech payment products at PayPal and Western Union Business Solutions.

In his 10 years at PayPal Mr. Haag identified and built global strategies and payments products for debit cards, retail ecommerce checkout and global mass payments. In his last 3 years at PayPal, Mr. Haag owned PayPal’s Mass Payments product, which he grew over 100% by rebuilding for scale and building new API’s for platform integrations. At Western Union, Mr. Haag identified B2B and Mass Payments opportunities and delivered product as well as partners and customers to use them. His Bank to Bank cross-border payments API is now one of Western Union Business Solutions’ fastest growing product.


Mr. Haag learned of Bitcoin in 2010 while delivering real-world FinTech products. He’s closely followed Bitcoin and Blockchain developments with his real-world usage lenses ever since. Over the next 8 years, Mr. Haag recognized very similar early adoption patterns from PayPal in Blockchain payments. Finally in late 2018 Mr. Haag joined BitPay, the blockchain payments leader, to accelerate their B2B and Payouts business success.
