Digital Currency / FinTech

Fintech is a newly-created word made up of the first syllables of “financial services” and “technology”. The term is used when financial services undergo further development or modification through the use of modern technology. In particular in the area of cryptocurrencies, there are now quite a number of fintech start-ups and fintech companies. The rapid ascent of cryptocurrencies has both surprised and captivated investors and economic experts. Yet how exactly does a digital currency actually function? What are the differences between the various different cryptocurrencies? And which technological innovations and trends are currently leading the way? Our keynote speakers can provide the answers to these and other questions on the topic.
