Kalina Stefanova Staykova, Jan Damsgaard

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateResearchpeer-review


The race to dominate digital payment markets is still ongoing, with no clear winner in sight.

This shift in the competitive environment opens new avenues for researchers to investigate the entry and expansion strategies of these entrants and the strategies, which already existing payment platforms can adopt to defend their market positions.
