By using Instantors bank API, developers will have access to transactional data from over 300 banks in 25 countries, with the potential to reach half a billion people. Instantor´s bank API has an unrivaled reach, and the WDSK initiative includes access to several markets outside new Open Banking legislation. The authentication and the end user’s interaction with banks are handled by Instantor, and the data can be accessed once the end user has given their consent.

“At Instantor we are in the business of making peoples financial lives easier, we want to fuel the development of new financial solutions that help people to change their lives. I believe that by opening up our technology combined with the power of great developers, we can support ideas to become fully realised and transformational products.

“I'm excited to see what innovative new products will come from WDSK. We are experts in interpreting data, and we want to give startups an opportunity and empower them to build and launch consumer-friendly products quickly.
