The Largest Open Banking App Store!

Last week we launched the largest Open Banking app store in the world with 120 apps listed at the time. We've had the great pleasure to be inundated with requests from app developers to be listed and we're excited to continue building out this app store!

In case you missed it last week, you can find our press release below!

142apps

We are proud to announce our newest app store, openbankingusecases.com, as part of the Open Banking Tracker.

Together with Plaid, equensWorldline, Salt Edge, and Ibanity, we have collected various use cases across the open banking ecosystem. Listing use cases from account aggregation apps to smarter credit scores and even adding a gambling block to your bank account.

The Open Banking Tracker is an ongoing project to build the world’s most comprehensive repository of PSD2 compliant banks, Third-Party Providers, and API Aggregators. The Tracker currently tracks 100 data points on over 2,800 challenger and incumbent banks across 89 countries and is the largest publicly available TPP registry in the industry.

“Over the last two years, there has been massive growth in the fintech ecosystem, with companies entering the space to offer innovative solutions to old problems. Banq realized that a missing piece of the open banking puzzle was a centralized app store showcasing how this technology creates value and unlocks new customer experiences,” says Gertjan De Wilde, CEO, and Co-Founder at Banq.

At the time of the launch, there are 120 listings of various open banking use cases already listed in the app store, and we invite any company that leverages the technology to contact us to get added to the app store.

In addition to the app store, a market map has been developed to map the open banking use cases in real-time.

In the upcoming months, we will be releasing additional market maps like Challenger Banks and the Banking Stack covering the fast-growing technologies used by Fintechs and banks.
