Finastra Fintech Offers Cashless Payment Tech
Cash may soon be a thing of the past.
Fintech refers to new technologies which automate the delivery and use of financial services. Fintech helps companies, business owners and consumers better manage their financial operations, processes, and lives through new specialized software and algorithms which consumers and businesses alike can use on their mobile devices and home computers. New apps are being released just about every day for cashless payment services.
And soon no one will be using cash anymore. Think about it. Cash can be lost or stolen. You have to keep on going to the ATM to get more when you need it. Not that long ago credit cards were not yet in wide use and stores all had high minimum charges for accepting them in payment. Nowadays the smallest charges can be paid with a card. And with so much online commerce everyone uses either a charge card or a service like PayPal.
And now we have all of those cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin out there too.
