Special Issue Information
In the modern digital economy, we have become increasingly dependent on technologies and their progress, especially since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the digital economy has witnessed the beginnings of artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT) and big data, the new digital revolution accelerated by the pandemic will involve a societal approach to digitalization. This Special Issue discusses the human-centric approaches and applications of financial technologies (FinTech) which have implications for sustainability and the sustainable development goals (SDGs). In the digitalization process, sustainable technologies such as FinTech offer new approaches to understanding society and undertaking the epic mission of sustainable development. However, divides in technologies, infrastructures, and methods for evaluating several sustainable development goals (SDGs) restrict governance and effective implementation in several countries around the world. Therefore, this SI entitled ‘Sustainable Financial Technologies: Governance, Applications, and Implications’ plans to provide an overview of the latest challenges and risks of implementing FinTech, and its implications for sustainable development including governance, ethical, privacy, and social acceptance concerns. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Applications of FinTech for sustainable development goals;
- Sustainable investments and finance;
- Post COVID-19 perspectives of FinTech Governance of FinTech applications and infrastructure;
- Privacy, ethical and accountability concerns;
- Social and cultural acceptance concerns;
- Role of sustainable FinTech in Industry 5.0 and the Metaverse;
- Metaverse platforms and sustainability;
- Future perspectives and emerging trends in sustainable FinTech;
- Proposed solutions for technological inequality and divides.
