NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kevin R. Greene, Chairman and CEO of Tassat® Group Inc., the leading provider of private blockchain-based business-to-business (B2B) real-time payments and financial services solutions to banks, will speak at Bank Director’s 2023 Acquire or Be Acquired Conference scheduled for January 29th through the 31st in Phoenix, AZ. Other members of Tassat’s executive leadership team, including Carol Hartman, Ryan Moore, Ned Thompson, and Amy Crate will also be in attendance.
Greene will lead a 20-minute presentation entitled “Using Blockchain Technology to Innovate and Gain a Competitive Advantage in Commercial Banking” at 2:20 PM EST on January 30, 2023. Other notable AOBA speakers include: David Feaster, Vice President at Raymond James Financial, Inc.; John Draper, Director at PwC; and Musi Qureshi, Partner at PwC.
“Corporate CEOs, CFOs and Treasurers want the same type of convenience and 24/7/365 availability for their B2B payments that they routinely enjoy when paying for personal expenditures at home—but they also want their B2B payments to be secure, efficient, and integrated into their treasury management systems,” Greene said. “Banks that have demonstrated the ability to meet these needs are enjoying increased deposits, relationships, and market share. Once business executives experience this superior solution, they invite their clients and vendors to utilize it, and they do not return to banks that only provide legacy solutions.”
TassatPay®, the only private permissioned blockchain-based B2B payments platform fully deployed within the U.S. banking regulatory system, provides secure, real-time payment capabilities 24/7/365. It also enables banks to utilize comprehensive Smart Contract capabilities and fully integrated Fedwire functionality. To date, TassatPay has processed more than $800B in transactions.
Additionally, Tassat launched The Digital Interbank Network in October 2022. The Digital Interbank Network is the world’s first blockchain-based, real-time B2B payments network operating entirely within the existing regulatory framework of the U.S. banking system. The Network’s members include only FDIC-insured banks transacting real-time payments and performing other banking services between commercial customers—24 hours a day, 365 days a year, via a private permissioned blockchain. The Network enables banks to offer a virtually unlimited range of secure, real-time services to their customers, including instantaneous blockchain-based payments, Fedwire integration and Smart Contracts. The Network is a highly secure, private permissioned blockchain-based payment instruction and settlement platform that is accessible only by member banks.
