Mexico is positioned as the fifteenth economy in the world and the second in Latin America. Regarding the fintech ecosystem, it ranks second in the region by a number of companies, behind Brazil, surpassing the barrier of 400 fintech startups, which have increased their number by 30% in the last years, constantly integrating new companies.

It is one of the most developed countries in the region in terms of government programs to support entrepreneurs, including fintech startups.  In terms of government and oversight of this sector, the Fintech Law, an explicit, measurable and punitive regulation, has been in place since September 2018. This makes it the first in the world to develop a comprehensive framework that takes into account the different business models in a single law, including virtual assets (cryptocurrencies).
