Following the invention of steam-powered machines, mass production and the transition to information technologies, today the world is now undergoing a new transformation that is called Industry 4.0. This new era, which was first uttered in 2013, in its simplest definition refers to the “transition from the period when people worked with computers to a period when computers operate without humans.” The developments in information technology, factors such as the widespread use of computers, the Internet and mobile phones, and the expansion of the circulation area of the capital, have been impacting the financial sector alongside other sectors; they lead to the emergence of new companies, new financial instruments and products.
