Financial disruption is one of the hottest topics today. Many startups are trying to revolutionize financial services, helped by the rapid advancement of blockchain technology. The blockchain ecosystem is busy developing applications that will replace and complement traditional banking products, such as cryptocurrency payment systems, wallets, centralized/decentralized/hybrid exchanges, peer-to-peer lending, money transfer services, and a variety of applications that are expected to disrupt the current financial services environment. Such applications are supported by a framework based on the decentralized ledger technology, which enables a wide reach in an un-censorable environment. As any ecosystem in its infancy, the current environment is highly scattered across various platforms, each performing a bundle of independent services with very low levels of conversion and synthesis.
