About the Blog Series

Financial Technology abbreviated as “FinTech” has evolved into a pioneering field that has turned the tables for e-commerce and the financial services sector. The rising popularity of digital transactions, open banking opportunities, and espousal of FinTech services are some of the key events that have been instrumental in the reshaping of traditional banking services. Additionally, the untapped potential of Blockchain Technology has paved the way for innovative and decentralized solutions in the field of arbitration, e-commerce, and digital payments. However, this relatively new field of law presents its own regulatory and policy issues.

In an attempt to encourage insightful discourse in the legal landscape around “FinTech”, the Editorial Board of RFMLR is now inviting blog submissions from legal academicians, practitioners, lawyers, legal experts, and students on a rolling basis.
