In this episode
Nothing scandalous happens in Vegas at Money20/20; let’s just get that out of the way. In its fifth year, Money20/20 is an event that people attend mostly to network and dance awkwardly at after parties. But in between those things, some great discussions happen. This year, financial inclusion was top of mind. Alipay surprised everyone with its announcement of going global. And Chris got a tattoo!
Chloé James – of Sky News Australia and RFi – attended Money20/20 with Chris, and joined him and the other 11:FS lads to chat about it.
