The FinTech Show: Bitcoin, crypto mining, and payments

Scott Birch, Editorial Director, and Will Girling, Editor of FinTech Magazine, poll our community on El Salvador's decision to make Bitcoin legal tender

In episode six of the FinTech Show (originally broadcast live on 11 June at 2pm BST), Scott Birch and Will Girling discuss:

  • El Salvador becoming the first country to make Bitcoin legal tender
  • China's decision to clamp down on crypto mining operations
  • The new developments in post-COVID payments, including the EU's decision to give every citizen a digital wallet

We also explore the newly released June '21 edition of FinTech Magazine, including a special look at our profile piece on HOOPP and the future of small business lending (guided by iwoca). Special thanks go to Valeria Simantob for providing the front cover of that issue.
