Why I started navigatingfintech.com
Keeping up with market, policy and regulatory developments is a huge challenge for everyone. Fast moving, as we can see with AI. Overwhelming, as we can see with DeFi. Genuinely international, as we can see with the attempts to build global digital currencies. And confusing, because terminology and narratives are crafted with marketing (not substance) in mind.
What is needed is an innovative tool for learning and skills-building. And that is where my principles-based teaching approach can make a big difference: I want to use it to simplify our view on things and provide transferable, long-term perspectives. And I wanted users to benefit regardless of their professional background, geographic location or level of expertise. Which is why I created navigatingfintech.com.
