Abstract : "FinTech is the Future Itself"

"... we are just at the very beginning of a revolution: The FinTech Revolution, a revolution that changes financial services as we knew them in the last 4 000 years. Ever since banking began in Assyria by issuing grain-loans in 2 000 BC the vast majority of innovations came from within the sector. But this has fundamentally changed and as a result we are the witnesses of an era when the ecosystem of nearly 5 000 small, nimble, innovative, creative and ambitious startups has taken over the central role on this prestigious stage."
