was just reading through Fed's report published on aug/5/19 (https://www.federalreserve.gov/newsevents/pressreleases/files/other20190805a1.pdf) And found this: Page 33, when some commenters expressed concern that a single private-sector operator would serve as a single point of failure in the faster payment market. "This diversity inherently creates significant coordination challenges that, along with the high fixed costs necessary to develop RTGS services for faster payments, are likely to limit the number and type of entrants in the market. Indeed, only one private-sector RTGS service for faster payments has been established in the nearly six years since the Federal Reserve launched the SIPS initiative and articulated the goal of a ubiquitous, safe, and efficient faster payment system. Comments received by the Board support the expectation that this service is likely to remain the sole private-sector provider of RTGS services for faster payments in the United States." According to the report, SIPS, Strategies for Improving the U.S. Payment System, initiated Faster Payment Task Force team of around a dozen of start up companies, and only one has been established. So, can anyone help me guess the name of the only company that has been "established" out of the start up since the launch of SIPS? That's the company that will serve US with the new RTGS service.
