Inside Fintech Conference and Expo is one of the most influential fintech events in the APAC region. It will be returning to Seoul, South Korea later in the year from November 30 to December 1. This will be the fourth edition of the event which originated from Inside Bitcoin. This years’ event is expected to bring together more than 2000 attendees of whom over 200 are expected to be CEOs. Over 600 companies from more than 30 countries will be represented. All the participating companies are at the crossroads of financial services technology including payments, blockchain, bitcoin, regtech, insurtech, and ecommerce.
South Korea has continued to bolster its position as a leading finance and innovation hub in Asia. It comes third globally in terms of cryptocurrency innovation and enjoys a growing trade volume in the sector. This year alone, two internet banks, Kakao Bank and K-bank, have been launched in the country and a third one is set to be launched by the end of the year. Additionally, Samsung SDS has launched NextledgerTM, a blockchain platform for finance, manufacturing, and logistics.
Inside Fintech Conference and Expo is an opportunity for leaders in the blockchain and fintech sectors to interact and learn from each other and forge useful partnerships. The two-day event will include an exhibition where major financial institutions, fintech startups, bitcoin experts and payment providers will participate.
