Regarding the different views and definitions, there is great heterogeneity in the literature and this article tries to systematize them. Furthermore, different justifications for its existence are examined and a proposal for categorization is made. Argumentatively, various opportunities and risks are highlighted that arise in connection with Fintech. Finally, various ideas and starting points for further research are derived from the arguments.
