The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Ant Financial, an affiliate of Alibaba, is involved in a deal to buy U.S. money-transfer business MoneyGram. This news comes just two days after TechCrunch reported that Airbnb is in talks to acquire Tilt, a payments startup that helps groups of people collectively fund a purchase. Why are so many non-payments businesses pushing into payments today?
