The credit card has been around for 50 years, and it has not changed much in all that time. Recently, a number of startups and established companies have begun to bring innovation to the financial industry. This panel will include representatives from companies that are working to develop and bring new hardware technologies to the financial services industry. Capital One will be represented by SparkPay and other emerging products. We will talk about the opportunities and challenges to deliver a truly innovative product in this space and try to predict where the credit card will be 50 years from now.
