Get ready for another "fintech" adventure, as our friend and financial technology expert John Best, president and founder of Best Innovation Group (BIG), crashes our virtual studio -- guitar and all. John is actually a very good guitar player being in a band for many years and says he plays everyday as an outlet from his intense focus on financial technology trends, issues, and breakthroughs for credit unions.
In part 1 of our chat (after our brief Van Halen tangent), John talks about how holograms may be the MSRs of the future -- along with 5G high-def video playing a similar role for credit unions, Minecraft being the new digital Legos, Hololens demo at E3 2015, and the latest updates at CU Wallet. There's so much more in this episode, as there always is with John -- adding Apple Pay and PayPal perspectives to the discussion, as well.
Always a mind-bending experience with John. So enjoy -- and stay tuned for part 2 next week when we address Apple Watch potential, why CUs are the "ring to rule them all," MCX, and more on CU Wallet and holograms.
