DPS Innovations GmbH has been a member of Initiative D21 e.V. since 01/07/2020. In Germany’s digital society, D21 is probably the most prominent non-profit network. D21 is not an industry and interest group. Rather, it sees itself as an initiative that focuses on networking the socially relevant stakeholders of digitisation in Germany, thereby generating fresh input/ new ideas within the context of democratic digitisation.
An essential focus of the DPS Group’s activity is the field of payments, in all of its digital and physical forms In the digitisation process, both topics are essential for a functioning economy and society.
For the future, the following questions arise:
- How do payment transactions work with the Internet of Things and in Smart Cities?
- How can programmable digital money be designed to ensure that the state’s regulatory interests and the citizens’ personal rights are well-balanced?
- What possibilities are offered regarding the commercialisation of customer data in the financial industry, and where are the ethical limits?
With its knowledge and experience gained in 30 years of project work in the financial industry, DPS would like to contribute in finding answers to these questions.
