Every year Money20/20 conferences come to fintech cities all over the globe. Those events rank among the most important get-togethers for the finance and digital payment market. Stage talks by the who-is-who of the industry, networking areas and business opportunities with more than 1500 international companies — that’s how Money20/20 Europe will be like this year, taking place at the RAI in Amsterdam from June 4th to 6th.
Fintech books? Are they really a thing?
Modern financial technology is inextricably linked with the Digital Era. Mobile payment, personal finance management, and cryptocurrency trading are major application fields of fintech startups.
Thus it’s only fitting that the fintech community relies on the internet for exchanging views on the topic, too. There are fintech news platforms like Finextra or Financial News. Networking communities like Holland Fintech and meetups like Finfinity invite people to share their insights. Blogs centered around experts like Chris Skinner react on developments on short notice. It’s obvious: In-depth knowledge of financial technology is readily available and easily found online.Read More
Global finance is not measured in Dollars and Euros only. The Asian Nations are driven to take the lead in technology. They invest in artificial intelligence and robotics, in fintech and mobile payment. Backed by vast economies like China, India, and Japan, Asia will play a major role in the financial area. A clear sign of this growth is the existence of financial conferences popping up all over the Pacific Area. Money20/20 Asia 2018 is the most recent addition to this well-filled list.
But we wanted to make it three — only fitting to our company name of trimplement.
In March 2018 we attended the very first Money20/20 Asia conference at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. And it was quite different than our two other trips to this part of the world.Read More
Which Architecture Fits Your Business Best?
It’s a question no company hosting their own app or software program can avoid: Microservices or monoliths? Which system architecture shall it be?
Skimming through the world wide web of tech talk, you might notice a distinct tendency: The Monolith seems to have fallen out of favor in behalf of microservice SOAs. But there are counter voices, too. They point out that microservice architecture comes with its own set of problems.
But what are the specific advantages and disadvantages of microservices and monoliths? First and foremost it’s all…Read More

What will the next generation of payment look like?
Tough question. But one that needs to be answered by the banking industry. Ever-accelerating technological advancements call for more flexibility on behalf of banks and financial institutions. For the 6th time, the German banking community Bankingclub GmbH has explored this topic at their annual Next Generation Payments conference. The conference took place from January 24th to 25th in Cologne.
As developers of emoney and virtual account management software such as CoreWallet and
If the rooms had ears and the furniture had mouths … oh, how would they slander about our habits behind our backs?
Well, they can already talk to us for once: Voice-controlled assistant devices like Alexa and Siri inhabit our private spaces just now. And we can easily picture them having a conversation with each other, too (even though it would be a funny one for sure). But what if our clock radio told our food processor to get that smoothie ready, for we are about to leave for work? Or our watch told our bathtub to run us a remedial bath because we’re leaving our workplace with the first stirrings of a common cold? And think of a fridge, buying food articles once it runs out of them, using its own ewallet…
That’s where we enter the domain of the Internet of Things – a domain ripe with opportunities for fintech companies.Read More

Your calendar told you well beforehand: This year is going to end soon. Which means the symptomatical end-of-year reviews are springing up all over the place.
We’ll contribute. While waving farewell to the old year, we’re looking back on our last 12 months of business. What did we experience? What did we achieve? And, looking at the whole picture, how has the fintech industry been holding up in 2017?
It will be a fintech end-of-year review featuring balancr then. Here are our highlights of 2017:Read More
FinTech does not always equal FinTech. The number of digital tools and technological advancements rejigging the financial sector would go beyond the scope of this article. If there is one thing that is true about most FinTech solutions, it’s their focus on “personal finance”. FinTech software often allows users to manage their finances on their own. He doesn’t need an intermediary anymore, such as a human advisor or a bank — although a robot advisor could still be thrown in.
Yet, when looking at the vast variety of technologies and software applications, one thing becomes clear: FinTech has quite a few peers running the show. They are *Techs in their very own right.
Let’s take a look at what we have:Read More
Modern life can in many ways be broken down into a series of transactions. We give something, like information, money or services, and we get a corresponding value in return. In that regard, time really is money. And so are stored values like virtual assets, loyalty points, kilometers driven and hours of usage.
Before online access was vastly available, tracking such values was synonymous to dragging paperwork. Software experts gave us Excel, of course. But despite its name it has done very little to elevate us above the need for paper copies.Read More
