Reimagining Banking and Wealth Management in the Bitcoin, Ethereum and Crypto Era
Agile fintech businesses have changed the financial services landscape going into the second-decade now. Ethereum and Bitcoin and other digital assets have changed our views on eCommerce, the commodities market, inflation hedging, and the entire financial services infrastructure and backbone.
Stable coins, CBDC, and cryptocurrencies are now part of any conversation involving financial services and it is hardly an exaggeration to say we are at the cusp of large-scale change. Can we visualize how economic transactions might look like even five years from now? Are we in fact prepared?
The question we want to discuss in today’s FINTECHTALK™ show is whether the banking, wealth maangement and capital management system is keeping up with the flood of technology changes that promise to shake things up.
Join us today, March 24th, at 1 pm PST, you can make sense of the technologies and trends that will redefine banking and wealth management as we know it! If you’re someone who wants to keep on top of whatever’s happening, then you need to listen in to the FINTECHTALK™ show on Clubhouse.

The Fintech Blueprint, by Lex Sokolin
Hi Fintech futurists, you should be out partying! Or rather, you should be inside, partying. I guess reading the Blueprint is your version of inside-partying. And writing it is *our” version of inside-partying. Glad we got that established. All that partying makes us think of what an absolutely schizophrenic, psychotic bummer … Read on.
