I have two points of concern regarding PointPay, the first being the very serious issues with the scalability of the Ethereum network. You probably remember how it got totally congested because of the Crypto Kitties game - a simple game, while we are talking about a fully-fledged banking network here. It won't work until Ethereum 2.0 is launched and fine-tuned. The second issue lies in the immense opposition from central banks towards similar innovative solutions.

I wouldn't place too much hope in the platforms like PointPay that are built on the Ethereum blockchain, mainly because of its scalability issues, which are well-known throughout the crypto community. Sure, right now, Ethereum is one of the best solutions for the issuance of tokens and smart contracts. But pretty soon, the problems will begin to show, and they would be especially acute for PointPay and other finance-related projects because of a significant reduction of transaction speed.

NIcky J1   November 11, 2019  


PointPay is merely the next one in the long line of blockchain projects that try to establish a foothold in the realm of online banking. None of them managed to achieve any sizable results, mainly because they fail to understand that people will keep distrusting such startups unless the proper regulatory framework will have been developed and implemented. Cryptocurrencies are a fun instrument for speculations, but they don't constitute the reliable assets, around which the global banking ecosystem should be built.
