Cryptobanking as a Service, the new technology platforms powering European Crypto Neobanks.

The demand for crypto products is accelerating innovation in the Banking as a Service space, opening up market opportunities for Cryptobanking as a Service solutions. The latest example comes for Zeeves Neobank, a cryptobank powered by Striga an Estonian cryptonative banking as a service platform.

Zeeves, a Telegram based Zilliqa wallet and activity tool, is partnering with Striga to offer a crypto-friendly, Zilliqa (ZIL) centric neobanking platform: Zeeves Neobank. 

The Neobank will include features of both traditional and crypto banking, so that users can maintain their fiat money and crypto tokens under a single platform, and exchange one for the other seamlessly, solving the problem of provisioning the connection between different payment instruments and entities.

New functionalities will include funding a debit card with EUR and Zilliqa (ZIL) to enable online and offline payments in essentially any store, and making international IBAN/SEPA transactions. Also, users will now be able to make crypto purchases and transactions with the same ease and convenience as with traditional currencies. This will all be made possible thanks to cryptocustody, cryptoexchange, IBAN and payment card issuance services provided by Striga’s platform

The beta version of the platform is to be released in Q3 2022.

“Zeeves and Striga established a founder friendly and prospective partnership. It is a genuine joy to team up with a company that is open to startups. We hope together we will reach a milestone in the sphere of financial streams uniting crypto and banking worlds.”

Alexandr Safonov, Founder & Director of Zeeves

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Zeeves, having been users and fans of services created by the brilliant minds behind the company, such as Button Wallet. Solving the biggest pain points that Striga faced by itself, partnering with Zeeves is evidence of a robust solution to a nasty problem plaguing financial services today.”
