Fintech Company of the week: AirSig

Today we want to start a new series: the FintechValley company of the week. Every 7 days, we will choose what is for us a Fintech with an interesting or outstanding product. (Our selection process, is based solely on our opinion, and does not involve and endorsement or recommendation of any kind).

This week we present you the Taiwanese Fintech “AirSig”.

The company has developed a technology that allows to create an motion based authentication process. A payment process inside a virtual reality game can be verified with a pre-registered and pre-determined hand motion.  See video below for a demo:

There seem to be other applications for the technology, such as IoT technologies, as well as those that require login and password credentials.

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.
