Absolutely.

As far as legitimacy, what I find amusing is that the 'Central Banks to
Central Banks', the BIS, actually has their eye keenly on the ball on
Fintech Innovation, including, POS -- perhaps more so than individual
Central Banks themselves.

Hence, you might find this interesting in-flight reading:-

Committee on Payment
and Settlement Systems
Innovations in retail payments
Report of the Working Group on
Innovations in Retail Payments - May 2012
