eQapital: A Licensed Digital Wallet and Crypto Currency Exchange Platform in the Italian Landscape

(July 10, 2020) — A traditionally conservative Italy has begun opening its doors to the incessant knocking of digitization as senate measures sought to include the terms blockchain, distributed ledger technology, smart contracts, and other related terms built around cryptocurrencies, thereby aligning the country’s direction according to set EU regulations. Once approved by the Italian Parliament, the Agenzia per l’Italia Digitale is tasked to lay out the technical standards of use to optimize utilization in boosting its economy. Italy together with six other EU states recently declared a unified stance to lead the region in harnessing blockchain technology as their defining catalyst for change.

Understanding the Italian’s Financial Psyche

Italians are known to be incorrigible savers and are not that much to loaning and debt. Yet their growing levels of consumption reflect a decreasing rate of savings balance can often lead to fund mismanagement. It comes as no surprise that only a minority 38% representation of the entire population can support their lifespan with ease. Considering the results of the S&P Global Literacy Survey, Italy lags behind its G7 counterparts when it comes to financial education. Even though their millennials scored weight at par with the middle-age group of developed countries, it reveals that they fare close in general only with developing nations. eQapital CEO Michael Paesani sees this as an opportunity for a massive information campaign to gain back the trust lost on the financial system. He went on to say that the recent financial crisis left many valuable lessons to the Italian savers as they are now more than willing to learn how money works given the readily available information and data the Internet provides given the proper guidance. Pessimism still hounds the many due to the economic downturn that they are seen proceeding cautiously slow and would not tread on unbeaten paths unless they are accompanied by experts in the field. Italians value interrelationships so much that they run to financial advisors whenever there are movements on market trends or if their stakes are affected. It is hard to discount the value of trust and reliance the Italians can have on their financial advisors in the management of their wealth, assets, and funds, that their influence can shape their options and decisions towards a more favorable financial outlook. According to a Deloitte research, majority of investors are now looking into digital solutions as with a majority of clients from the North who are in their 40s and 50s. Millennials, on the other hand, fall in the minority since they are still job hunting and most wealth is in the hands of their elders.
