The city of London is going to host FinTech Week this September to represent the thriving Fintech community. The organizers aim to unite the world of FinTech in the world’s financial capital and enhance the dialog between established multi-nationals and disruptive start-ups. They are also inviting the leaders of the Fintech revolution and legal experts; Kevin Taylor is part of the same mission.
In a very short interview with Bitcoinist, Kevin Taylor said that he was quite happy about the event:
