This November at The Fintech Times we will be returning our focus to one of the hottest topics in fintech: digital currencies.

Year in year out, people continue to wonder how long the crypto hype is going to continue. The volatility of the market and the crashes it has faced keep leading some to believe that the digital currency’s time has come to an end, but without fail, it always pops back up again. Why?

This month at The Fintech Times we’re going to be looking at what makes digital currencies, most notably cryptocurrencies, so popular, while also uncovering the emerging alternatives to cryptos and why the digital future looks so intriguing.

We will be looking at different blockchain initiatives, and how they are being applied in different sectors including banks, healthcare and gaming.

Our focus will then turn to central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) where we will look at their development over the last couple of years, further analysing which countries are leading the charge and why.

Smart contracts, despite having been around for a few years now and proven to be useful, continue to avoid the mainstream. We will look to uncover what they are replacing and why they are a suitable technology to do so, alongside looking at some case studies.

We will round out the month looking at quirky currencies – the biggest and most popular digital currencies of 2022 as well as the most bizarre.

In addition to this, the topic is set to saturate many of our off-paper content streams, including our webinars, podcasts and in-person interviews.

There has never been a more appropriate time to open up the conversation around this exciting topic, and we can’t wait to share more exclusive digital currencies insights with you over the course of the coming weeks.
