“Electronic Money”; “Virtual Cash” or “Digital Assets” – What are you dealing with? | 23 Aug 2018 | Bangkok

The words ‘electronic’, ‘virtual’, and ‘digital’ have become an integral part of the language of today’s financial transactions. The era of financial technology revolution has arrived, with thousands of FinTech companies penetrating all spheres of financial services and even disrupting money itself.
