The Word Economic Forum gathered this week in Davos, where the flagship debate was unsurprisingly on the future of  financial services. Conversations heated over the ongoing question of whether banks will be fast and innovative enough to handle the rising number of fintech startups, more specifically in the blockchain space. The chatter evolved less around bitcoin, but more on the regulatory aspect.  Will blockchain and other fintech startups face the same level of regulatory issues and controls as the incumbents face? Should regulation trump innovation when finance and the global economy is involved?  It's clear these questions will be addressed again in Davos 2017.
