Digital Humans & The Fintech Revolution

Fintech doesn't exist in a vacuum. Ultimately it is about providing solutions for real people in the context of their daily lives and a broader human ecosystem. In this presentation based on his most recent book, Chris Skinner explores the transformations that are sweeping through all spheres of life: the domination of global digital giants; the advent of new financial structures; the disruption brought about by Bitcoin; the rise of robots; and the fall of banks. Chris asserts that we live in the fourth age of humanity. The first phase was becoming human. The second was becoming civilized, when we created money. The third was becoming commercial, when we created banks. In this fourth age of humanity, we have turned ourselves into Digital Humans. Technology is changing the way we talk, trade and transact. We are now interfacing with technology whenever we do business, make friends, and go about our lives. What does this mean for business, banking, society and government? What does this mean for you?
