Fintech and Blockchain Markets Are Expected to Grow With Demand for New Technology

NEW YORK, April 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

According to a report from Netscribes, Inc., the global blockchain technology market is expected to be worth 13.96 by 2022, along with a compound annual growth rate of 42.8 percent during the forecast period. Blockchain is a decentralized network that can record transactions between two parties. The blockchain solutions is being increasingly used in various industries, including Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), government & public sector, healthcare & life sciences, retail & ecommerce, automotive, media & entertainment, and others. The demand for blockchain solutions is increasing rapidly as it helps improve efficiency and lower cost for processing transactions.

The Banking Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) segment has become increasingly interested in blockchain technology for their payment services. Santander recently has launched the first blockchain technology-based international payments service, which is called Santander One Pay FX. The service will be available in Spain, UK, Brazil and Poland. Ana Botín, Executive Chairman of Banco Santander, said: "Blockchain technology offers tremendous opportunities to improve the services we offer our customers, and the launch of Santander One Pay FX is the first of many potential applications".

Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: GLNNF) also listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the Ticker (CSE: GET). Just earlier today the company announced breaking news that, "is upcoming Ticket Pay feature within its Glance Pay platform, further demonstrating the platform's flexibility, value, and applicability to a wide range of payment scenarios. The initial feature will allow users to pay for parking violation tickets at the time of receipt simply by snapping a picture of the ticket via the Glance Pay app and confirming the amount - thus reducing headache for consumers and potentially saving them significant money due to eliminating late payment fees and possibly vehicle impound fees. Additionally, Glance is exploring the potential to apply this to other types of tickets such as traffic violations.

A common scenario for consumers today who park in urban areas is to return to their vehicle to find a dreaded $70 parking violation ticket on their windshield. If the ticket is not paid within a limited number of days, the payment amount can increase significantly, sometimes by $35 or more. Consumers often throw the ticket in their car and carry on, hoping to remember to pay it sometime in the future. Often the payment options are not convenient. For example, some jurisdictions still require payment for traffic violations to be done by mailing checks. And if a few unpaid parking tickets buildup, consumers' vehicles may be towed and impounded, which is quite inconvenient and costly.

Glance Pay intends to initially launch a trial version of its ticket payment capability in one geography to help solve this problem for consumers - and to potentially save them money and headache surrounding ticket payments. When a user receives a ticket, on the spot they will be able to just snap a picture of the ticket via the Glance Pay app, confirm its amount, and the ticket will be paid…

 "The hassle of paying for parking and traffic tickets is something that we have wanted to solve for some time," says Glance CEO Desmond Griffin, "This is a natural fit for our Glance Pay application and we are excited by the opportunity it presents. We believe there are many more payment scenarios like this which can benefit from our technology to improve convenience for consumers and operators alike."
