PROBLEM
Traditional financial technology and web3 do not openly communicate.
Bank problems
The process for merchants and banks to verify every transaction is a long and expensive process
In traditional payments, users aren’t asked for consent before a payment is processed from the credit card processor and second layer of authentication is usually telecom (insecure).
Crypto problems
Crypto has no native compliance tools for anti-money laundering, KYC/KYP/KYB, identity, source of funds, or risk scoring for financial institutions to adopt it.
There isn’t a way to push or pull funds (or legacy finance to interact) real time on the blockchain from credit/debit/ACH/IBAN.
