Anything related to fintech.
Here are some ideas:
– most of the people work every day but get paid only at the end of the month. Why shouldn’t we use the tech available today to pay employees at the end of each day? Or every hour. Or minute.
– how easy and cheap could Romanians that live abroad send money back home or pay the bills for their families here in Romania?
– Slack, Skype, Kik, Facebook Messenger bots are the new hot trend right now. How can you build one to help users pay for stuff or send/exchange money to others?
– blockchain or ethereum can be used today to have a decentralized version of almost anything. what would you like to descentralize?
