FinTech projects are dominating the scene, especially in the blockchain community. Banks and financial institutions are in constant need of evolution: those who don’t apply the market’s latest offerings and facilities will stay behind and lose important ground to an ever-growing list of competitors.
As is, financial services need to be available for everybody, and not only for the elite. Granted, in big cities and developed countries, you could talk about some degree of equality, but in developing and third-world nations, only a small portion of the population has fair access to these offerings and opportunities.
FinTech solutions take care of the described inequalities to a degree, but who takes care of FinTech issues? Paygine appears as a logical candidate.
Paygine: Best2Pay technology applied
In short, Paygine consists of an all-purpose financial platform that performs its operations within its very own banking structure. Its primary goal is to help FinTech and cryptocurrency-related projects or propositions perform critical functions such as transfering funds, crypto exchange, and payment for actual items and services.

The protocol: how does it work?
Paygine has all licenses required for unlimited usage of Pay Engine technologies and products. The latter is a well-known company, with successful experiences at firms such as American Express, SEB, Bank St-Petersburg, Sberbank, Renaissance Credit, ABN-AMRO and RBS. Pay Engine Limited own the Best2Pay brand, which launched the Best2Transfer platform with the help of Visa and Master Card.

Paygine holds a critical competitive advantage over similar projects and competitors, and it consists of its ability to leverage its existing platform and technologies that are currently used by FinTech businesses, e-commerce, and beyond.
There is strong competition in the field, though, and that can’t be denied. Projects such as Debitum Network, Monzo, Aragon, and We Trust have had varying degrees of success.
