Issue #355 - What To Do When Inflation Rises

2022-03-17

In today’s newsletter, FinTech Weekly covers one of the topics that are making headlines: blockchain technology. Cryptos seem to be the best hedge against inflation: Elon Musk has already announced that he won’t sell his cryptos, while fintech companies, payment services giants and social media platforms are entering the hottest market – Non-Fungible Tokens. But these are not the only developments in the fintech space: Toshiba just realized an amazing way to allow customers to pay for their products, and major fintech companies are collecting billions of dollars in funding rounds. FinTech Weekly covers this and much more to keep you informed: not only fintech news, but also major fintech conferences – discover CXFS & NGCX 2022.
