Fintech Daydreaming

By Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu
Between digital native customers demanding instant gratification and the ever increasing amount of regulation, financial institutions are between a rock and a hard place. The era of the fintech started after the 2008 financial crisis, challenging the status quo. More than a decade later banks haven’t gone anywhere, yet fintech is more relevant than ever. What happened with all the fintech hopes and dreams? In this podcast Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu pick one topic in every episode and try to look at it through the lens of fintech disruption - or lack thereof. This is Fintech Daydreaming.

Summer is almost here but the team at Fintech Daydreaming are showing no signs of slowing down as we finally got one of our most anticipated guests to join us for a chat. Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu sat down with Paul Yoo from Meta who has a phenomenally interesting career that has taken him around the world working for some of the best known brands in fintech. We got to talk about everything from crypto to the metaverse and ended up learning about how once upon a time bitcoin “almost” took over the economy in Thailand. Tune in.

Digital for good with Chris Skinner
Getting the fintech legend and author Chris Skinner to join us for a chat in our Fintech Daydreaming studio was a fantastic milestone for us. Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu got to talk about everything from his new book “Digital for Good” to the metaverse, but little did we expect that we’d learn what Chris thinks about one of our hosts (all said in jest), superhero fintech jokes and the legend of Captain Cake 🍰 Sounds confusing?

The Fintechs are coming! Or are they? with Likhit Wagle
The fintechs are coming! The fintechs are coming! Or are they? If you listen to the media it would seem banks have been on the verge of going extinct for as long as we've had online commerce but today in 2021 it would seem not much has changed in the big picture.

Death to banking products, long live client centricity with Chris Vick
