hype mobile payments set to exceed


Mobile Banking users to exceed 1billion worldwide by 2017


Mobile payments set to top US114bn in China by 2015


Mobile payments volume to grow by 275% in 2013 in the US


This is just one day!!

I've written this post especially for David Abbot, as for the second time in the last few months I've found myself agreeing with him in a Linkedin group that these kind of predictions are just getting a bit silly.

How much hype can this industry sustain? How much hype is a good idea? When does hype become bubble? (When it fuels investment, I guess, just to answer my own question)
