Decrypting Crypto

November 2021

This edition of Rise FinTech Insights focuses on how blockchain and cryptocurrencies are disrupting traditional finance and society and are a pipeline for future innovations.

Digital assets in financial services are unleashing opportunities for FinTechs, investors and banks. This report highlights what recent innovations might mean to FinTechs and institutions, and examines ways they can both benefit.

Read how blockchain and crypto leaders are developing new solutions across a range of use cases and how large enterprises are reacting to the decentralised finance movement (DeFi). The report also covers:

  • Contributions from Coinbase, Polymath, R3 and Solana on implementing and securing blockchain, savings from using Security Token Offerings (STOs) and scaling of decentralised apps
  • Case studies from Arch and Chainalysis
  • A landscape analysis covering the exciting companies in the crypto world
  • Examples from Barclays’ Chief Technology Office, who are collaborating with governments, regulators and FinTechs to build new digital fiat currencies and payment systems using blockchain technologies
