Alyssa Cutright, eBay's Vice President of Global Payments, previously spent 10 years at PayPal (formerly an eBay company), Square, and X.com which was Elon Musk's startup, and she joins Real Vision's Haley Draznin to discuss the payments ecosystem, the role blockchain will play in the future of payments processing, and the high valuation of gateways like Stripe and PayPal.
