Moreover, fintech plays an important role in large, medium and small businesses all around the world. The report has also outlined useful recommendations, which have a potential to bring this newly born industry to a new qualitative level.

“Nonbank financial firms play important roles in providing financial services to U.S. consumers and businesses by providing credit to the economy across a wide range of retail and commercial asset classes. Nonbanks are well integrated into the U.S. payments system and play key roles such as facilitating back-end check processing; enabling card issuance, processing, and network activities; and providing customer-facing digital payments software. Nonbank financial firms also play important roles in capital markets and in providing financial advice and execution services to retail investors, among a range of other services”

Cryptocurrency industry is constantly growing and expanding; more and more world authorities try to find an effective way to control it. This issue was even discussed during the G20 Summit this year. Without doubts, there are a lot of risks in the modern cryptocurrency and ICO industry, which creates a number of serious problems for governments.
