In Ukraine, 6 June is traditionally a symbol of Journalist Day. We accept the congratulations and of course, congratulations to our colleagues!
“If your goal is to change the world, then journalism is the most effective and quick weapon for it,” once written by British playwright Tom Spopard. Information is the most valuable asset. Therefore, regardless of expertise, every journalist can actually contribute to changing the world. Unless, of course, artificial intelligence will take our place in the near future.
PaySpace magazine specializes in fintech, payment trends and e-commerce. We know a lot about cryptocurrency and blockchain, we monitor the confrontation of NBank and traditional banks, we test payment novelties and we strongly believe that we at least look at the level of financial education in Ukraine Help to increase. On our professional holiday, we collected the TOP-5 myths about fintech journalists – we hope you will get to know us a little better.
Myth 1: Fintech journalists are trained in specialized faculties by specialized universities
To understand fintech, you just need to be interested in this industry. Test the news, analyze the opinions of experts. But the thing that will surprise you even more is that you do not have to become a journalist by training. For example, the editorial staff of Pespace magazine includes professional philosophers, environmental equipment engineers, gem processing technologists, educators, and economists.
Myth 2: All fintech journalists (eg, incidentally, colleagues from other fields) are going extinct
This is far from the case. 80% of the authors of PaySpace magazine are editors. They really need a personal space to create first class content, they prefer remote work, rarely attend events, and prefer to use email instead of phone to receive comments .
Myth 3: Fintech journalists should be fully aware of every service, technology and fact about which they write.
Definitely not that way. Yes, we try to study as much as possible what we cover on the pages of the magazine, especially when creating analytical articles. But we get lost when, in the comments on the “TOP Europe Neobanks” review, we are strongly asked that the account in Bank A disappeared while trying to transfer money from account to bank B.
Myth 4: Everyone can be a journalist – just be able to write letters on the keyboard
Often such texts are, at first glance, well written, with interesting themes – but “don’t hold up.” The soul is felt in a good text. Every day we work to ensure that the content on our website does not leave anyone indifferent. So that both Fintech experts and common users can find something interesting for themselves.
Myth 5: Fintech is the interesting and eventful life of a journalist
But this is just true! We love our work so much, we are happy to learn something new (because the fintech sector is constantly evolving) and test innovative solutions, participate in special events, discuss with experts and consult with them. We are always happy to meet new friends and new knowledge!
