The first month of the year has been an interesting one for FinTech – we’ve seen company expansions, VC investment, product updates and much more.

In the news

FinTech Monthly: Investments topping £33m, a blockchain update involving JP Morgan Chase and more

Barclaycard made the headlines with a new app update that enabled customers to make NFC payments using their Android phones, but the company couldn’t confirm when it will roll out Apple Pay.

Overseas, FinTech was a hot topic at the World Economic Forum, with Deutsche Bank AG’s CEO claiming physical cash will become extinct in the next ten years; and, in the States, blockchain startup Digital Asset Holdings raised $52m and won a contract to speed up settlement in Australia’s stock market.
