An interesting article recently published in highlighted the differences in Mobile Money regulations for Mobile Network Operators and eMoney for Banks and payment service providers.

Of particular interest was:

  • The Government trying to encourage MNO’s to become Fintechs?
  • The scope for Mobile Money and eWallets is high due to 70% of Vietnam’s population being unbanked.
  • There is a demand for Super Apps, whereby the consumer needs a range of different payment-related services.
  • That the MNO’s have a more significant reach than the eWallet operators?
  • That eWallets could be challenged by MNO Mobile Money Wallets, which are not linked to a bank account.
  • Confusion over the eMoney regulations for MNO’s vs. banks and payment service providers.
  • That MNO Mobile Money Wallets are not linked to Bank Accounts.
