#58 – What happened to the BNPL hype? | Dr. Rene Fischer & Philipp Bulis (Oliver Wyman) – GERMAN

But wait: What’s the point if I can’t trade and liquidate my assets like traditional stocks, funds, etc.? This is exactly the problem we’ve noticed in previous podcast episodes (e.g. episode #50 with Theresa from Econos).
