One would be hard-pressed to deny the progression that fintech has experienced since the last year. Regardless of the fact that there was an ongoing global pandemic, big changes were already being implemented in terms of how user experience would be affected and also how fintech’s digital chant would become increasingly critical due to platforms searching for solutions that would guarantee success in terms of the real world and practical value.
Data aggregation has a huge role to play
Fortunately for fintech, data aggregation is something that has been around for quite a while now, and it has been consistently focusing on unlocking new opportunities and providing value to customers in terms of financial services as well as to regulators and the general society at large. To this end, numerous new applications which guarantee frictionless payment and transaction systems have been put into place, and this has shown consumers not only what may be possible but also in which future direction products must head in.
The success of these aforementioned applications has managed to already result in the expectation of an increased level of access and convenience for consumers for any new service and product provided. Furthermore, with the increase in the availability of data-driven and powerful application programming interfaces, there is absolutely no reason as to why any firm or company could not theoretically allow the integration of similar system functionality into whichever platform type they may elect to go for in the future.
The observation of new innovations which have been developed in the decentralized finance sector must also be considered. This is because exchange protocols that would have been decentralized have also been transacting well over $1 billion in value. In addition, they also manage to include those assets, which may only be a couple of hours old. Moreover, in terms of ease and interoperability, it has been made abundantly clear that the latest innovations have made this possible for consumers. Lastly, consumers would also like their respective financial integration and banking systems to be made secure, simple as well as frictionless. To this end, this is a good start, but consistent improvements will be needed as time goes on.
