Fintech in South Korea

Last week, FintechValley had the chance to attend the World Fintech Forum event in Seoul, in South Korea. It was a two-day event that covered Fintech topics from different industries: blockchain, security, peer-to-peer lending, remittance, payments, among others. We also had the chance to hear about the current status of Fintech in other countries such as in Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain, Israel, Japan and the Czech Republic.

In this post, we would first like to introduce to you some of the companies we came across in the event, some we have heard about and some other established Fintech-related enterprises in the South Korean market.

In a post to follow we will then discuss more in detail about the World Fintech Forum.
