  Robinhood had 13M users in its entire existence before Jan. 2021 and gained 6M new users in just six weeks. Robinhood's valuation has also shot up in the recent past.   I'm guessing many other companies will be dying to pay such a "heavy price" and go through a "fiasco" like Robinhood.

Software-based payment solutions will enter a boom, but a lack of security could tarnish the sector

  I completely agree.  There is definitely an increase of payment solution software and the security matters remain concerning. Like every new technology - hacking and fraud will be growing with it.  Although I don't think it depends on the time of the provider on the market but really their awareness of the security and threats. It can happen that a well-established provider is the victim of a successful hacking attack that's why I think it depends on the priority the provider judges the security should be.
