Why subscribe to this Fintech & DeFi newsletter?

Our thesis is simple. Finance is being pulled apart by the forces of frontier technology. 

From artificial intelligence, to blockchain and crypto assets, to mixed reality, chatbots, neobanks, and robo advisors — the industry will never be the same. 

Its fee pools will collapse, attention platforms will aggregate users, the infrastructure will be digitized and decentralized, and generations will change.

But this doesn’t have to be confusing

At Fintech Blueprint we track developments across investing, payments, banking, lending, and capital markets. 

We cut through the noise to create and articulate a coherent blueprint for the future. We’ve spent a decade making sense of complexity to shape the future.
