The history of money dates back to ancient times. Whether it was the Greeks and their use of the first coin, the drachma, or African civilizations exchanging merchandise for cowry shells, people have been leveraging currency in exchange for goods and services for a long, long time.
The financial services industry is going through perhaps one of the most transformative times in its history as it grapples with changes to how things work with the emergence of innovations such as mobile money and bitcoin. Banks, credit unions and capital markets are, of course, in the center of this shift, and they’re being challenged with evolving their infrastructures and services as a result. Technology, as you can guess, is playing a leading role in this regard.
In an effort to highlight the thought leaders and conversation starters in the fintech community, we’ve taken our popular Must-Read IT Blogs list and applied it once again to the financial services sector. Last year, we brought readers 25 of the top IT blogs in financial services. This year, you can help us expand that list by finding a few more.
We’ve selected list.ly, a social media tool for submitting and curating lists, to bring our nominees together. In order to add a blog to the list, readers should authenticate with either a Twitter or Facebook login, which lets us know you’re not a bot and helps to reduce spam. If you see a blog that you already read and appreciate on the list, feel free to vote them up.
Note that while voting might weigh in favor of a blog’s inclusion on the final list, it is not guaranteed. Ultimately, the final top 25 honorees will be selected by the BizTech editorial team.
Here are the nominees we’ve come up with so far. Please help by adding to the list, and don’t forget to let your colleagues and social networks know that we’re on the lookout for the best financial IT blogs!
