    Key themes in 2021 for fintech: banking the unbanked, "unbanking the banked", the collaborative role between traditional banks and new fintechs, and the interplay between centralized and decentralized finance.

    To Octavio's question about cross-border payments:

    DeFi-based cross-border payments make a lot of sense in specific cases: especially for low-value, high-frequency instances such as international remittance payments to friends and family, or micro transactions such as the purchase of online gaming items and other virtual goods from an international provider. Companies such as Stellar Lumens have been making excellent progress on these and similar use cases. However, in many cases, the types of users who actively / knowingly sign up for a blockchain-based solution remaining relatively low. While blockchain-based solutions for these use cases often can be faster and less expensive, the real adoption potential is through partnerships rather than through B2C customer acquisition. In other words, the major impact is when already known and well-established mainstream services make use of these blockchain-based solutions.
