    Mastercard wins in a cashless world. And the credit card ­giant has been aggressive in ensuring that, even in an era of digital payments and cryptocurrencies, it stays that way. Mastercard bills itself as a global payments and technology company (it launched facial ­recognition–­enabled “Selfie pay” in 2015), and it sees enormous opportunity in our increasingly connected world. The company’s tech is embedded in cars, gas pumps, vending machines, SoftBank robots, and just about every conceivable online device. As for the billions of people around the world who still deal exclusively in cash, the company views them as potential future Mastercard customers.
