Hi Paul,
This is Joseph from Maputo, Mozambique. I just wanted to ask you or share a food of thought here, so that i may understand more.
Recently, european commission released the much-anticipated draft proposal for PSD3, the next iteration of the Payment Services Directive (PSD2).
This draft text contains important proposals for the future Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) regime in payments and Internet banking in Europe, and entire world as well as for the fight against payment fraud.
Based on this new next iteration of PSD, i have a question here;
Does Mojaloop solution which is designed for Financial inclusion and rapid digital transformation have the legislative structure for the below components?

  1. PSD3, PSR and RTS?
  2. New provisions to tackle Payment Fraud?
  3. What banks and PSPs should do to prepare for PSD3

Thank you!

Thank you Joseph for an interesting post and set of questions. Although we are aware of the proposed PSD3, the new PSR (which follows a pattern we've seen elsewhere), and the FIDA proposal, we have not yet begun to integrate them into our roadmap. As I understand it, PSD3 is the first to come into force, and that by the end of 2024. It is likely to be some time later that similar measures are adopted by our active markets.

We were pleased to note that one of the issues being addressed is the competitive disadvantage that non-bank PSPs currently face. With regard to the enhanced SCA requirements, prima facie these apply to DFSPs, not to the switch, but we will keep this under review, and the sharing of fraud related data is an area we are keen to address. The proposed "permissions dashboards" are a potential issue for us, which we will consider.

We don't currently think that the FIDA proposals will affect Mojaloop, but we will keep this under review.

Jospeh, is this something of particular interest to you? Would you be interested in being involved in a Mojaloop-focussed review of these proposals?

Hello Mojaloop Community! I am excited that you have started this community portal. At the Interledger Foundation we have used Forem for our community and grantees for the last 3 years, and its an essential tool for our work. I would invite all of you to join us there as well as there are lots of community overlap. Our communities are already working together and I would love to see that increase even more as we work to expand global financial inclusion. If anyone has questions about Forem, or best practices with the tool, happy to answer them.

Good day, I am a Bangladesh (GMT+6) based software developer with over 14 years of experience. Currently, I am working as a Full-Time Freelancer. Previously I worked for the Bank, Microfinance. I have developed a system (Universal Collection System) from scratch for the Bank where new customers can be on board and can receive their collection and can acknowledge to customer ERP if needed. Now I have quite an interest in Mojaloop as it connects DFSP (Bank, Fintech, MNOs, MFIs, etc) into a single loop, which can accomplish many many things and can improve mass people's standard of living. Thanks !
