The Ethereum Merge is finally complete, but instead of talking about what this means for the crypto market, we’d like to reflect on regulation. It looks like new regulatory frameworks for what concerns cryptos, especially Proof-of-Stake (PoS) cryptos, along with inflation concerns, are preventing the price of Ether. A negative consequence of The Merge, but the same concerns could make the prices of BTC rise according to some analysts. At the same time, further implementation of RegTech could make the fintech market more inclusive for SMEs, according to a study conducted taking into account the ..read more

Issue #381 - Anonymous, But Together – And Driven By Data

Coinjoin, a way to further anonymize transactions while cooperating with others. As we know, a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin is not fully anonymous, since an expert can still track transactions and even manage to link a transaction to a specific IP address. Coinjoin allows us to pull transactions in order to mask single traders, and it’s a quite complicated process, but the point that most grabs our attention is that those who cooperate need to trust each other. A system born to avoid trust and guarantee privacy needs trust to allow full anonymity. Privacy and anonymity are not the same, but it ..read more

Many times, we at FinTech Weekly analyzed the many contradictions of the fintech sectors. And also this time we’d like to do that – but under a different perspective.

Issue #379 - Stronger USD? Yes, But It’s Not That Good

by

The current strength of the USD is not good news for all those businesses whose returns largely depend on foreign markets. This, combined with high inflation, required a new regulatory framework that mainly has to do with interest rates. Now, this can be a serious challenge to fintech companies: the market experienced an impressive boom during the pandemic, and even if fintech is still thriving – especially in specific parts of the world, like Africa, and it can still offer a way out to companies and people that want to make the most out of their money, all those companies that over hired and ..read more

The pandemic helped people understand what are their priorities: a better quality of life, better services, a better working environment are just a few examples. The new generation of workers made it clear: even if office work is a great way to have human interactions, a hybrid approach is better, as well as a stronger focus on work-life balance and mental health. In the meantime, also insurers focus more on people and businesses, and InsurTech facilitates this new trend. Renting might be the new trend in the NFT market, making it accessible to a larger number of people, and fintech companies ..read more

While robots should have helped humans to improve how they do things, it seems that now robots could help humans to keep doing things. Humans seem to need robots and artificial intelligence not to burn out. But this is not the only thing that seems to go the other way around: fintech exceeds expectations when compared to banks; while people used to work to digitalize the economy, now digitalization seems the only way to support the economy and create new “digital” jobs – for instance, in the Metaverse.
