Fintech in Switzerland and Poland
Switzerland is renowned as a banking hub all around the globe. With innovations like Etherium coming out of Switzerland, the Swiss ecosystem remains relevant and contiunes to push towards more efficiency in the financial sector.
Poland as well is very active in the Fintech field and has spawned many StartUps that cooperate with major banks, especially in the payment sector. Examples are inPay, which allows you to accept Bitcoin payments and Blik, which unites many banking features in one convinient app and is supported by most major banks in Poland.
Innovations in the banking sector
Switzerland has also been very successful in developing and implementing payment soloutions such as Twint, a cashless payment soloution founded as a subsidary of PostFinance and adopted by many Swiss banks.
Big enterprises are often slow, when it comes to developing something new from the ground up. A symbiotic realtionship between StartUps and enterprises can be beneficial for both: Enterprises benefit from having less internal dependecies and StartUps get the reach and market access, they otherwise would have to develop.
Focus on Blockchain
The blockchain was revolutionary and it will likely continue to disrupt the Fintech sector, as many companies are working on blockchain soloutions. We’re excited to see what’s coming next!
