The past year has brought significant developments in financial technology. The acceptance and integration of major Web3 advancements, like embedded payments, digital wallets, and BNPL services, have been prevalent. Digital assets, including cryptocurrency and NFTs, have also gained prominence, with partnerships between fintech companies and major brands and celebrities. Additionally, the infrastructure for utilizing these assets has seen significant development, with Walmart and Adidas announcing their own NFTs and marketplaces.

However, the fintech world has also faced challenges, such as high-profile crashes and downturns.
