Dwolla VP of Product and Information Security Ben Schmitt joins us on the show to discuss enabling payments on the "value layer" of the Internet. Ben also explains Plaid (allow customers to streamline bank verification), Sift (allow customers to use machine learning for real-time ACH fraud monitoring), and a soon-to-be-announced partnership that will tackle another value type: physical card issuance.
Lastly, Ben tells us about Dwolla dusting off this protocol (402 Payment Required HTTP protocol) and connecting disparate value types with a series of integrations and partnerships aimed at moving more money more quickly.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts.
