Just as the cryptocurrency industry picked up the pace in the year 2020, it proved to be revolutionary to the entire fintech industry as well.
Since the inception of cryptocurrency technology, fintech firms have continued exploring the cryptocurrency sector.
They have continued increasing their exposure to cryptocurrencies and have adopted them as much as possible. As of today, almost every major fintech firm is offering all major cryptocurrencies.
Their purpose is to offer online banking to users that do not fully comply with the same policies as traditional financial institutions.
They offer people the opportunity to send and receive cross-border funds without incurring huge fees or charges.
Because the fintech firms are mainly regulated and adhere to local laws, they are convenient for traditional firms to adopt.
This is the reason why traditional asset management firms are partnering with fintech firms to utilize their technologies and profit from that.
