"The main intention is to create Bank as a Service (BaaS) platform for fintech developers that will be able to get access to the infrastructure and customer base via API. Developers with small or medium capital will be able to create their fintech apps and enter the banking market without the need to establish the whole infrastructure and getting banking license by themselves. It substantially reduces barriers to enter the market, which are currently very high."
The trend of moving away from centralised to decentralised markets was introduced by the European Commission with Payment Services Directive (PSD) followed by PSD2 which comes into force next year which obliges financial institutions to grant the access to their various prod- ucts and services via Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Successful integration of the directive will create the single trade and transaction market which also will bring users closer to the digitals assets.
Forty Seven is based in United Kingdom, London
There are three main reasons for this particular domicile location:
1. The government of the United Kingdom and regulatory authorities have advanced favourable conditions towards cryptocurrencies and other digital asset initiatives.
2. London itself is a major financial centre which gives access to significant share of the foreign exchange market out of the world’s total foreign exchange dealings. Having this in mind could draw an assertion that London could provide solid base for cryptocurrency services’ claims and advancement.
3. Forty Seven team already has had successful experience of developing financial technology products and their full legal registration procedure completion in the UK regulatory framework – FCA.
