The basic problem is digital banking, payments and commerce are all fast moving targets. Technology and consumers enablement are both changing very rapidly. I forsee a day when both Visa and Mastercard will loose their market relevance. There are huge differences between geos from a maturity curve perspective. There are emerging ecosystems that are still undefined and many more are on the way. Take a look at the Zelle and The Clearing House efforts. They could be the new Visa's and MasterCard's of the future. The life span of a Fintech is until it runs out of money. What's should a bank or even a Fintech do? A core need is to build a platform that is flexible in its architecture. An  API layered based architecture can help. Investment in a solid core moden infrastructure will yield more long term benefits than some shiny new front end.
