Throughout this decade, the world has watched the booming of financial technologies and disruptive electronic payment solutions.
In such a prosperous setting, Brazil has proven that it has the potential to expand its emerging market and become one of the leading references for this segment in Latin America.
The country’s promising e-payments market has grown exponentially in the past few years, thanks in particular to the entrance of foreign players in the industry, which favored a more competitive field. The innovative approach of local regulators, which has fostered competition and innovation by regulating strategic and key aspects for the industry, mostly influenced by international regulations, such as the Europeans Payment Service Directive 2, also played an important role.
