FinTech refers to software and other modern technologies used by businesses that provide automated and improved financial services. FinTech in our daily life is Mobile Payment apps, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain like Bitcoin and Gemini. In the future, the range of FinTech services is predicted to transform the market even more with AI and machine learning and will make FinTech products an integral part of our digitalised life.
FinTech’s role in society is becoming more vital than ever, mainly due to Covid-19. FinTech can be used anywhere, by anyone meaning it becomes accessible to people who may never have taken advantage of financial services before.
