Quick money transfers, better exchange rates, faster and cheaper investment in crowd financing platforms and securities markets, easier pay services on mobile devices, automated spending and billing reports and analysis: these are just some of the benefits for consumers of fintech or financial technology solutions. To learn the news in the financial technology sector, attend the FinTech Conference at Riga COMM 2021 this October.
The ability of new technologies to capture and process data in real time changes how business is conducted, how products and services are perceived, and how consumers participate in this process. Financial technologies are developing the economy and society, creating more equitable, transparent and inclusive financial services, and promoting competition by giving consumers more choice.
Fintech has been a buzzword in the financial world for some time, and it has played a significant role in a variety of areas, including banking, insurance and investment. The combination of telecommunications, data analysis, cryptography, cryptocurrency and other machine-learning technologies is rapidly and significantly changing the entire banking sector – more quickly and significantly than ever before. The new solutions allow you to make transactions using a mobile phone or tablet, improve performance efficiency, security and customer experience, and reduce costs for your business.
Fintech is not just about the digitization of money but also monetization of data
Companies collect large amounts of data – information provided by customers, sales volumes, home page visits and many other types of data. However, companies need to know and use this data for their own benefit so that they are useful for business. The new technology solutions allow companies to convert big data to meaningful information.
Fintech helps companies of all sizes understand and manage collected data by creating tools and processes that convert them into meaningful, usable data. In this way, companies can analyse patterns, trends or relationships. Moreover, technological solutions make it easy to get reports that help you more easily track new information and create a more efficient strategy.
Perfect for SMEs
Innovative fintech solutions can contribute significantly not only to large organisations but also to small businesses, improving cash flow, working capital management and providing for more stable or safer funding. Moreover, fintech solutions are often cheaper and safer compared to banks.
Innovative fintech products give small and medium-sized enterprises access to a variety of financing opportunities: P2P (peer-to-peer) lending, merchant and e-commerce financing, invoice financing, online supply chain financing and online trade financing.

Owning an online business means you have to be frisky and able to quickly adapt to innovations. FinTech trends are rapidly changing, requiring new solutions to constantly occurring issues, fulfilling your customers’ wishes.
Current innovation trend is freedom of choice in payment methods, which includes mass cryptocurrency adoption. It is reasoned by many benefits of digital currency use, such as immediate payments, decentralization and very low risks of frauds. With the growing popularity of crypto, the idea of integrating it into online payment solutions becomes more common. But there is still work to be done as virtual currencies are yet to replace traditional or credit/debit card payments.
One of the reasons behind such a slow process of cryptocurrency integration in payments world is lack of knowledge and competence. Digital currencies might be the hottest topic in FinTech world, but many consumers still stay uninformed. Dalia’s 2018 survey shows that more than 50% of users still have no knowledge of cryptocurrency trend, despite Bitcoin’s explosive rise in 2017. Especially, people lack understanding where exactly cryptocurrencies can be used – and the fact that they can be used for almost every purpose the same as traditional money. By implementing cryptocurrencies in business operations, companies contribute to creating more awareness and educating their clients about the benefits and limitations of digital currencies. These contributions work towards the larger adoption of digital money.
Crassula’s CEO Daria Dubinina also highlights the fact that cryptocurrency is comprehended more as an asset by its owners prevents it from adoption in the real economy: “People are buying crypto with the hope that its value is going to get bigger, which shows instability of digital currency. When the value becomes more stable, there will become more opportunities for its integration in everyday payments.”
But making cryptocurrency payment possible in your business allows consumers to take advantage of the innovative world of digital money. We already can see more opportunities arising with more businesses incorporating decentralized networks for transactions, but the progress is still on the way. The unique and brilliant technology of blockchain can make a big impact not only on your business but on the economy of the whole world. Developing countries highly support the idea of digital currencies because of them becoming an alternative to ineffective financial systems.
How can you contribute?
If you care about cryptocurrency adoption but have no or not enough idea of how it can be implemented, consider using a white label service that already has necessary features and offers solutions for cryptocurrency payments. Brands like Crassula are already offering innovative technologies that help to make a transition from traditional currency to digital currency more easy, fast and essential. And it all is white labeled to help other companies integrate digital currencies in their business in days.

Bilderlings is a modern, mobile bank operating in two main areas – internet acquiring and settlement accounts. Since 2015, the company has successfully operated in the payment services market. Bilderlings holds a license from the financial regulatory body of the UK (Financial Conduct Authority) and a top-level certificate that guarantees protection of card data systems: PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, a single standard for security in the payment industry).
What will we talk about at RIGA COMM 2018?
In our everyday work, we often hear the question: How does one maintain the high security standards required by the financial industry while staying dynamic as a developer of modern payment solutions? IT specialists from Bilderlings Pay will report on Docker, a phenomenon in the software world, and the concept of “containerization” that is associated with it.
Docker is usually thought of as a “software” or “tool,” but in fact it is a conceptual approach, or even a philosophy, expressed in software solutions. In short: Docker is similar to a loader in a port that works with standard containers. A “container,” in turn, is an isolated process – or several processes that serve as an active application. “Containers” can be moved from place to place, their quantity can be increased (or decreased) based on requirements like the level of system load or convenience of installing an app, for example. As a result, payment software solutions based on this approach give you full control over the process, on the one hand, as it is when it runs on a physical server, but at the same time provide flexibility comparable to the virtualization of a cloud service.
Are all the necessary safety standards being met? Yes – this is a “golden mean” that is able, first and foremost, to provide flexibility in infrastructure without reducing the security level of the system. Within the framework of the RIGA COMM 2018 conference, our IT professionals will discuss the benefits of the Docker concept using the example of several leading American and European companies.
