Additionally, central banks of all the countries need to understand what fintech is, only then they will be able to create the value and control the risks. Similarly, the discussants opined, we need to think the relation between the customers and the fintech companies through the perspective of demand and supply. If we know the relation, it will be easy for us to regulate.

Notably, they also talked about the crypto currency market in Japan and Hong Kong. Participants opined varied views on crypto currency; some even went on to say that crypto currency is not good because it is illegal and deceptive.
