Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The financial sector has recently seen significant innovations that both enhance as well as disrupt the way clients are served. This is not surprising; the business models of other traditional industries have been completely disrupted by the arrival of technology-centric new comers. Furthermore, increased awareness of opportunities in digital banking and internet finance is important to ensure sustainable economic growth by directing resource allocation and promulgating regulations to support requisite services. General topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Financial technology in asset and wealth management and funding
  • Trade, supply chain and currency risk management
  • Electronic trading platforms
  • Credit risk management using big data analytics
  • Blockchains, Cryptocurrencies and ICOs
  • Financial technology to serve the underserved
  • Decentralized inclusive finance

Starting with BitTorrent and then Bitcoin, decentralized technologies have been on the rise over the last 15+ years, gaining significant momentum in the last 2+ years with the advent of platform ecosystems such as the Blockchain platform Ethereum. New projects have evolved from decentralized games to marketplaces to open funding models to decentralized autonomous organizations. The hype around cryptocurrency and the valuation of innovative projects drove the market cap of cryptocurrencies to over a trillion dollars at one point in 2017. These high valued technologies are now enabling something new: globally scaled and decentralized business models. Despite their valuation and the hype, these new business ecosystems are frail. This is not only because the underlying technology is rapidly evolving, but also because competitive markets see a profit opportunity in exponential cryptocurrency returns. This extracts value from these ecosystems, which could lead to their collapse, if unchecked. In this paper, we explore novel ways for decentralized economies to protect themselves from, and coexist with, competitive markets at a global scale utilizing decentralized technologies such as Blockchain.
