Future of FinTech hackathon. Defining new standards for digital finance.
Last year we were building hacks to improve the life in cities with the motto “the future is already here, it’s up to us to distribute it equally”. This year we will focus on the financial sector.
Nowadays, there are a lot of financial instruments and ready to use tools which are waiting to be connected into a meaningful application for customers.
We also got more and more financial data available which can give us an interesting insight into the financial behaviour of people. Based on this insight we can, for example, educate people about their bad spending habits and help them make their spending more "healthy".
In some parts of the world, the importance of blockchain is growing steadily as it helps people to save the value of their hyperinflated money. And again there are many tools waiting to be developed to work with crypto instead of money.
What should be the new standard of banking and financial services?
