Summarizing wrap-up of my session at #BitcoinForAdvisors w/ @TR401 since we were running tight on time at the end with all the great questions... (1/?)
#FinTech & #FinServ innovation will continue to aid 'holding' problem of how advisors can integrate cryptoassets to their systems. Starting point is being able to aggregate held-away crypto for tracking/reporting, which EVERY advisor should want to do. #BitcoinForAdvisors (2/?)
As holistic advice starts w/ clear view of everything, & platforms like @Onrampinvest are solving for the unique account-agg issues to pull cryptoasset data into existing systems. (Assuming client relationship si strong enough that they WILL share?) #BitcoinForAdvisors (3/?)

Starting today, @RBI new set of guidelines will become applicable for recurring payments via cards.
As the industry moves to the new standard, here is my take the new rules 1/n
Till date, rules on recurring payments via cards were not clear. Recurring payments worked on credit cards but not on debit cards. There are 900 million debit cards that are now eligible for supporting recurring payments under the new guidelines. 2/n
This is a massive change and along with the UPI Autopay, it will open the floodgates for recurring payments and subscription economy in India. 3/n

The direct indexing trend continues, and the heels of Vanguard acquiring JustInvest and JPMorgan acquiring OpenInvest in just the past few months... (1/?)

"Franklin to Buy Custom Indexing Firm O’Shaughnessy to Help Personalize Portfolios" on.wsj.com/3oA4e4z
Notably, though, there's a shift already underway in how Direct Indexing platforms are getting positioned, compared to the deals last year when Morgan Stanley acquired Parametric and Blackrock acquired Aperio. (2/?)
In the case of Parametric and Aperio, the deals were positioned more as a distribution play - mega firms acquired 'traditional' direct indexing providers to distribute their (largely HNW) direct indexing strategies to a wider client base. (3/?)

1/12 A thread on #ANT and how to read #China #PBOC Governor speech on Fintech(#ANT) yesterday. The headline says only FinTech, but Wink Wink, ANT is all over. Get strapped because I will sprinkle some wide guesses and rumors in the end. pbc.gov.cn/goutongjiaoliu…
2/12 My quick take on Fintech (Ant) SINS: 1. Monopoly power 2. Winner takes all 3. Payment system seeping into finance, insurance, small loan and asset mgt. 4. FIN must be separated from Tech, Payment from FIN. 5. Data Security 6. Global Coop on Fintech regulation
3/12 Points 3, 4, 5 has been addressed! I'v written on ANT credit scoring JV+ SASAC take stakes in the three private credit scoring companies. And Alipay has been ordered to be separated from financial services, because FinTech is more Finny than Techy!

Meet @MarooWedding🤵👰. Raised $3 mill. Remote-based. Think @faire_wholesale for the wedding industry.

A thread👇
Fintech company in the wedding space.
- Problem: couples going into a pile of credit debt from their wedding.

QED Investors has invested in 150+ startups over 14 years and consistently delivered outstanding results. Today, we announced a new $1B+ vehicle to continue on this journey.

In honor of this milestone, here are my 14 biggest insights from 14 years at QED: 👇🧵
2/29: Insight #1: It’s more important to be an average Investor in a target rich ecosystem than a great Investor chasing windmills. It’s been a great decade for #fintech which made our jobs easier.
3/29: Unseating profitable players is a great starting point. We’ve invested in 20 companies now valued at > $1B+ (with more right around the corner). Some are generating $1B+ of revenue and very profitable. Taking high margin revenue away from incumbents is a great strategy.

Account Aggregator Platform went live on 2nd September. Many from the fintech domain, are excited about this. Here is my take on what exactly Account Aggregator is? and why is it been seen as the next digital revolution?

(Explained mostly through Memes)
In our country, getting a loan from traditional sources like banks was very difficult for MSMEs & SMEs due to the current lending infrastructure. Predominantly the sources used to be loan sharks or chit funds that charge exorbitant interest rates.
In order to solve this problem, India’s top regulatory bodies came together and decided to create a framework that will make sharing of financial data through banks, mutual funds, and other sources easy. This gave rise to introducing a new Framework that is Account Aggregator.

#Ethereum size istediğiniz her şeyi yapabileceğiniz bir platform sunar ama nasıl yapacağınıza #ETH karar verir.” Ethereum ile #PolkaDot arasındaki temel fark budur. Bugün anlatacağım @AcalaNetwork #AcalaNetwork projesi #PolkaDot un hepsi bir arada #DeFi hub ı olmayı planlıyor. Image
#ETH protokolü üzerinden istediğiniz #DApp uygulamasını yazabilirsiniz ama istediğiniz şekilde yazamazsınız. En basitinden, protokol sizden #ERC20 standartlarına uymanızı, #Solidity dilinde yazmanızı, (yüksek fee ücretlerine rağmen) fee olarak $ETH kullanmanızı isteyecektir. Image
Öte yandan, PolkaDot ağı birçok yazılım dilini desteklediği için size herhangi bir programlama dilini veya herhangi bir para birimini kullanmanızı gerektirmez. Geliştiricileri/Yazılımcıları kısıtlamak, sınırlamak yerine onlara tüm istediklerini yapabilecekleri bir platform sunar

How a super smooth brain's journey down the @terra_money rabbit hole 🐇 convinced me this ecosystem is the real "Future of France" 🧵👇
1/ I was made aware of @terra_money back in Feb, but never started really exploring it until about a month and a half ago. And what I've seen so far, has completely blown my mind 🤯
2/ The main thing that has me so boolish about this ecosystem is that the developers clearly understand that in order to gain mass adoption, you CAN NOT buidl things just “for crypto users”.

That was v 1.0 (bitcoin) and v 2.0 (ethereum).

1/ ~FIVE YEARS AGO, I first said #bitcoin cld take down a GSIB (global systemically important bank)--NOT because of anything wrong w/ Bitcoin, but bc the banks just aren't set up to handle an asset that settles in minutes & is irreversible. @ChrisBrummerDr rollcall.com/podcasts/finte…
2/ If banks are going to start owning #bitcoin/#crypto on their books(ie, not just being custodians like w/ stocks), banks need special rules to deal w/ the huge differences in settlement terms. Banks use systems set up ~40yrs ago (esp in US),most of which reconcile only 1x/day😱
3/ Again-issue is w/ banks' IT & operational systems, not w/ #Bitcoin (which I consider the most significant financial technology invention of human history. Yep, really💪). In this @ChrisBrummerDr podcast w/ former Fed Governor Dan Tarullo, we discuss how bank capital rules work

.#IMPORTANTE: La empresa #MercadoPago difunde informe sobre #InclusionFinanciera y terminales de cobro con tarjetas.

Impresionante como viene #MercadoLibre sacando estudios. El valor de que sean GIGANTES es que podemos tomarlo casi como representativos.

¡Abro hilo con insights!
2/ En esta oportunidad #MP estudió a vendedores en entorno presencial que cobran con tarjeta. Esto es, sus terminales POS (las grandes) y las mPOS (las que van al teléfono celular).

A la par del boom #Fintech y de pagos digitales, los instrumentos de cobro vienen explotando.
3/ ¿Qué pasó en Argentina?

También explotó. Y los mPOS, más ágiles y económicos, cinco veces más rápido que la terminal POS.

¿Cuanto aportó #MercadoPago al cobro digital en #Argentina?

Si hoy hay 1.4 millones TOTAL desde 2017 ¡comercializó +2.3 M de lectores y terminales!
