All The Fintech - 2.14.18 - Valentines Edition

February 14 · Issue #19 · View online
All The Fintech
Happy Feb 14th to everyone! It feels as though over the past few weeks, the crypto craze across fintech has died down a bit (or maybe my mind is doing a better job filtering it out). Either way, it’s been nice to see some more coverage cycles and resources focused back on “mainstream” financial technology. For example, this week “old school” payment companies like YapStone + Dwolla raised some additional funding and Goldman still continues to make waves with some PFM acquisition discussions. Goldman’s entry and subsequent growth into consumer finance has been surprising to me and next week, I’ll try and go a bit deeper :). But for now, on to the so what of the past week…
