Nowadays, financial and technology sectors are two things that can’t be separated. Both sectors are complementary. The world is moving more rapidly, as do the world of technology and finance. These days, more people want to do a fast transaction. Then, technology provides that needs. A lot of new financial apps is coming to serve the financial transaction. Only with our mobile phone, nowadays we can send and receive money within less than a minute. That’s the magic of financial technology.
The growth of technology brings a lot of benefits for many sectors, especially in financial industries. We can imagine, because of technology now we can solve many problems in the financial sector.
Timeline of Financial Technology
We can take a look at the picture above, that image can tell us that only within 2 years (2011-2013) the growth of financial application was growing rapidly. More people want faster and safest transaction, and that need is possible to be realized with the current technology.
The growing technology has been proven to hit many sectors, especially for those who do not innovate to follow the development. In the financial services sector such as banking, the shift from generation X to generation Y (millennial) even generation Z becomes a challenge to be faced.
Now there are two generations that need a different approach, namely (generation X), and the younger generation Millenial (Y). The former generation was accustomed to the conventional ways of banks, while their generation did not even hold a saving book because they were used to e-money.
From that picture above, we can see that there is a big swift from centralizing system to decentralize system. The decentralized system can be managed by Blockchain technology.
Blockchain has great potential for the future of financial services industry around the world. The blockchain technology can provide an efficient and secure transaction.
As an absolute record of ownership, it could create greater efficiency and transparency in position-keeping and reconciliation. As we gain more experience with the technology, we have several areas where we are creating working proofs of concepts.
Introduction of Forty Seven Bank
So, at this moment, we can proudly present about new ICO project that can give a huge benefit to the financial sector, it called Forty Seven Bank. As we have discussed above, that technological shift has taken place.
The centralized system is an old technology that sometimes can crash the entire system. A centralized system is vulnerable. There are a lot of risks that sometime hacker can enter the main server and starting to leak an important information.
That problem can be solved with the new technology which called Blockchain. It’s a decentralized system with a lot of securities function.
A lot of financial organization including IMF (International Monetary Fund) began to consider this Blockchain technology. I am sure that in the next a few years, Blockchain technology will be massively implemented in many financial and banking applications.
As we all know, International Monetary Fund (IMF) is a big financial organization. Their advice and policy can bring big impact to the world financial conditions. So, if IMF finally can accept Blockchain technology for all financial application, that will be a good news for Blockchain enthusiasts, including Forty Seven Bank team.
