The Financial Technology Law Review - 1st edition
This first edition of The Financial Technology Law Review is published at a time when most players in the finance sector are concerned about the new developments in information technology (IT), big data and artificial intelligence (AI). Hence, it is often forgotten that the use of IT in the finance sector is not new and that many applications that would come under fintech are already quite old, at least by today’s standards.
However, there are indeed some recent developments that are entirely new, such as AI and the blockchain and its various applications, such as other tokens (e.g., cryptocurrencies and security tokens). These do have the potential to disrupt the industry, in at least some of its sectors.
