The only way FinTech start-ups can truly revolutionise the banking system is through ethics, transparency, honesty and a sense of responsibility. Fintech companies are bringing a positive change to the speed, ease and frictionless nature of digital finance, with the goal of building a democratic and sustainable global economy. Worldwide, conferences and events are held that bring together the major leaders in the financial sector, technology innovators, visionaries, blockchain and crypto experts, institutional investors and government authorities to share ideas and projects that will help build the economy of the future. It is on occasions like these that Young Platform acts as a spokesperson for the emerging Italian FinTech sector, as a young and innovative enterprise, with the conviction that confrontation and partnership between the traditional banking system and that of the new millennium is the necessary pivot to successfully face the wave of change.
