In the news

TransferWise might soon become the UK’s next billion dollar startup after the FT reported they were attracting the attention of a $50m investment from Sequoia. Its founders won’t confirm, but did launch a manifesto tackling foreign exchange charges this month.

Southampton Football Club have dipped into fintech with a new contactless tickets and payments system for their fans.

A London startup has also teamed up with the FT to predict the future of the financial markets.

Bitcoin broken down

Money has been pouring into Bitcoin startup Blockstream but no one really knows why.

I talk to Luis Smith from CoinJar to get the inside story.

Talking points

In this episode, Richard Goold from Wragge Lawrence Graham and Co also weighs in on Bitcoin. He discusses whether a new cryptocurrency could replace Bitcoin over time.

Make sure you read Richard’s monthly column: Can London fintech really shoot the stars out?
