I've been wondering for sometime now why banks don't implement these type solutions themselves. It seems abhorant to allow a small, unproven "set-up" to bolt its system to a bank. Would any bank compliance/risk manager REALLY allow that. I could understand if it were blockchain connected, but this isn't anywhere near as complex or unique.
