This event is where the world’s leading banks, tech firms and fintech startups meet. This track sits at the intersection of finance and technology. Join us this November as we examine how tech is changing the fibre of one of the world’s oldest industries.

What’s happening?

Web Summit attendees will hear from the world’s best speakers in on-stage talks, panel discussions and Q&As, as well as roundtables and masterclasses about the world of fintech. That’s not all – your ticket gives you access to all MoneyConf sessions, and more than 20 other tracks at Web Summit.

Crypto and NFTs
• The crypto sector is experiencing a constant rollercoaster. Even our world-class experts are not certain what lies in store for valuations, trading platforms, NFTs, and the issue of the energy consumed by the industry... That constant change is why you can’t look away.
Open banking
• Open banking has helped propel a number of European fintechs to unicorn status, but how will it fare on an international scale? Will traditional banks be able to contribute to an open financial network, or will new companies emerge to fill the niche? Join us to find out.
Saving, spending and lending
• As new digital banking, lending and investing options have emerged, entrepreneurs and everyday consumers are taking a long, hard look at where they’re putting their money. But can investment apps be trusted? Is insurtech truly transformative? Top execs and experts answer these questions and more.
Cashless futures
• The relevance of hard cash plummeted further in the pandemic. But how close is the cashless society in reality? Our experts will discuss regulation, the underbanked and the fate of paper currency to see if notes and coins will truly become a relic of the past.
