The dust is slowly settling on our temporary new normal - physical distancing and work from home for many of us. Amid swelling infection rates across the world, eery images of desolate streets and entire fleets of aircraft grounded on the tarmac - many of us are sitting at home working hard on the future - which for financial services will be transformational. Our sense of community is showing, with initiatives popping up everywhere, like this group of fintechs working to help out SMEs. To keep things moving, Russia has decided to open up a regulatory sandbox and allow for cryptocurrencies amongst others. Funding remains a little on the slow side, but US based Plastiq pulled in a very respectable $75 Million USD in a series D funding round. Last week we launched our first Lockdown Digest - #2 is available here and focuses on interesting podcasts to help pass the time! We hope you enjoy it! Holland Fintech would like to take a moment to appreciate all the millions of hard working people who continue to go to work to keep critical infrastructure up and running! We are with you and appreciate your sacrifices. Stay Safe.
