Monday Ilias Hatzis our Greece-based crypto entrepreneur (Founder & CEO at  Kryptonio a “keyless” non-custodial bitcoin and cryptocurrency wallet that lets users manage bitcoin and crypto without private keys or passwords and Weekly Columnist at Daily Fintech) @iliashatzis wrote Is Bitcoin Worth the Risk?

Over the last few years, we’re transitioning from a process of redefining financial services, by altering the architecture that underpins our financial system. Fintech companies are becoming mainstream, but they’ve operated on the outskirts of the traditional financial system. Much of today’s payment infrastructure was built years ago to allow business-to-consumer payments, trade financing, and supply chain activities. Many of these payments use a common template, have a lot of manual overlays, and are typically costly. We can have a fundamental shift where we go from manual to automated with the growth of blockchain technology at scale. Central banks are trying to figure out how to make this new technology without having negative effects, as they try to find the best way to make it more effective. The growth trend in cryptocurrencies is expected to continue. Some, including myself, believe that cryptocurrencies will replace existing fiat currencies. One thing is certain, no one can remain blind to current events in the crypto world and its growing importance for the financial system.

Editor note: Fintech and crypto have both come a long way but are only getting started with a much bigger journey ahead.
