Clover Raises $5.8M From Andreessen Horowitz; Launches As A One-Click Mobile ... - TechCrunch | Payments 2.0 | Scoop.it

"Clover Raises $5.8M From Andreessen Horowitz; Launches As A One-Click Mobile ... A new mobile payments startup is entering the market."

 

Comment: Clover positions itself as a one-tap, 5-second checkout with radically improved security over existing solutions. It's hard to understand what really makes them better than whom. With $11 million dollar raised, it's hard to believe they can go against PayPal, Google or Square (nearly $170 million). But again, they have innovated technically, we certainly won't know how from this TechCrunch artical who uncritically rewrites the company description (with a few added typos).
