Home of The Original FinTech50

The FinTech50 was the first curated list in the world (2012) to recognise Fintech in Europe for innovation

2000+ Fintech companies across Europe, 5 panel discussions and one secret ballot later, The FinTech50 2020 is now live. This year we recognised that businesses are at different stages of evolution. So this year's FinTech50 is a FinTech70. Our panel selected a separate Top Ten (ranked from 1-10); a multi-talented 50 and a very Hot Ten of earlier-stage innovators.

The Hottest News and Rankings in the Fintech and Crypto Industry

FinTech, the rebellious offspring of Finance and Technology, is here to replace traditional finance. And if you’ve been living under a rock, let us explain more. Fintech is any software or hardware that enables users to make transactions, apply for loans, use crypto exchanges, and so much more. 100% virtually!

With FinTech50, you can stay up-to-date with the latest news, hot announcements, and crypto brokers of 2022.

Businesses and big financial institutions have also embraced fintech solutions, which has been facilitated further amid the ongoing health and economic crisis. In fact, the fintech sector is not reserved for innovative start-ups only anymore. A couple of years ago, JP Morgan – once an opponent of cryptocurrency – invested $25 million in start-up projects.

And believe it or not, you are a big part of the industry. Online banking, tax calculations, e-commerce, split the bill solutions, ATMs, robo advisors, Bitcoin trading – you name it! Though it takes the warm human contact out of the equation, fintech solutions speed up numerous financial processes and help even unbanked people access equal financial services.

Fintech is growing, and some of its prominent branches include wealthtech, insurtech, and more. And it’s growing fast! As per Ernst and Young’s Global FinTech Adoption Index, fintech adoption has increased from 16% in 2015 to 64% in 2019.

Cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies are helping the fintech industry grow at a X faster rate. Surprising? Not at all! The global crypto market is expected to hit $4.94 billion by 2030. Stats show that blockchain and regtech are the fastest-expanding areas in the fintech area. Blockchain technology may even hit $20 billion in the next two years!

The 50 Hottest Companies in the Sector

Whether it’s companies allowing users to boost their credit scores or organisations trying to reduce bank-transfer processing times, the number of fintech companies adopting crypto is growing. Just look at Paxos, which facilitates PayPal and Venmo along with others, and Kraken, which acts as a crypto bank.

Don’t think of Silicon Valley giants only, though! The UK is also a leader in the field, with Revolut being an undeniable leader in international payments and crypto trading. Nebeus is another revolutionary company with over $4.5M funding that can bridge the gap between fiat currency and cryptos.

So ready to explore some of the best fintech companies? We at FinTech50 are here to help.
