Finastra launches the first bitcoin wallet in its banking app store

14 septembrie 2021

Allied Bitcoin Wallet, available through Finastra’s FusionStore, enables community financial institutions to offer their customers the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoin.

Allied Payment Network (Allied) and Finastra today announced Allied Bitcoin Wallet, a new app to be launched on Finastra’s FusionStore. The service, created by Allied, in partnership with NYDIG, will enable financial institutions to offer their customers and members the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoin via a compliant, secure and turnkey platform.

„Allied is the first bill pay provider in the industry to embed this service into a payment platform and offer it to financial institutions,” according to the press release.

Allied’s primary focus is to make it easier for financial institutions to provide value-based technology that differentiates them in the marketplace, attracts new depositors, retains through high engagement, and generates revenue,” said Ralph Marcuccilli, Founder and CEO of Allied. “Providing access to bitcoin does just that and is a game-changer for many community institutions.

Allied Bitcoin Wallet—built on Finastra’s open developer platform, FusionFabric.cloud—will consolidate bitcoin transactions, digital payments and account balances into one easy-to-access location for enhanced financial management. The financial institution will not have to hold bitcoin on balance sheet or transact in bitcoin to offer this service.

„However, by giving their customers the ability to buy, sell and hold bitcoin, financial institutions can attract new accountholders, better serve existing ones and create a new source of potential non-interest income,” Finastra believes.

“Bitcoin adoption has increased dramatically over the past 10 years, and financial institutions need to be able to service their customers across currency classes,” said Vincent Pugliese, SVP and General Manager, Platform, Finastra. “Finastra is excited to launch the first bitcoin wallet in its app store with Allied Payment Network. Through Finastra’s FusionStore, financial institutions are able to access innovation and claim a leadership position regarding the latest banking trends and technologies.”

Mihai Draghici – CEO PayByFace

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
