Digital wallets have become so mainstream that a wide range of companies across industries is rushing into the segment. It is quite a controversial topic as digital wallets mostly seem to struggle in the market even though mobile is on the rise. What is paradoxical is that despite the struggle of every other wallet, there still seem to be companies that are confident in the possible success of their solution. Low adoption rate and a highly competitive market are not seen as barriers to entry for tech companies and those in retail.
