Nubank and C6 Bank are neobanks- a form of bank without physical branch shops, instead operating entirely online. They have come to be a key way that we spend and save our money, however for some, they may seek an alternative.
Lanistar, meanwhile, is a fintech company. A combination of finance and technology, fintechs embrace the latest innovations in the financial space, providing unique services to their customers that both overlap and completely deviate from what is offered by most neobanks.
In this article, we will look into some of the features available through Nubank and C6 Bank, before looking into what makes Lanistar unique amongst its market peers.
Nubank, The Countries Biggest Neobank
Nubank should not be a new name for Brazilians and others in Latin America. With over 60 Million customers worldwide this neobank has been able to redefine the way people manage their money, with features that are both simple and innovative.
The app interface is quick and easy to navigate, with intuitive navigation that makes finding the feature you need a breeze. Features often used by customers, such as PIX, are some of the first options presented to customers when opening the app, making navigation quick, which is essential when making physical purchases.
The variety of available services, also, sets Nubank apart from the competition. Beginning its journey in 2013, Nubank has had more time than many of its competitors to grow its resources, now being able to provide its users with financial services like investing, life insurance, and personal loans.
However, Nubank is not the market’s only neobank.
C6 Bank Provides An Alternative
Another widely popular neobank in Brazil is C6 Bank.
Like Nubank, it features a virtual card on a smartphone app which holds access to a variety of financial services, with services like investing also available to customers. The app is easy to navigate which makes it perfect for daily use, with features like PIX, Boleto, and Google Pay just a button press away.
C6 Bank goes the extra mile by allowing customers to customise their C6 Bank experience, with a multitude of cards to choose from. Different colour virtual and physical cards allow C6 Bank users’ personalities to shine, with some designs even existing specifically to champion social and ecological issues, like ending homophobic discrimination and saving the world’s oceans.
It is innovation with a purpose: something that Lanistar also promotes.
How Is Lanistar Different?
Indeed, many of the features seen with Nubank and C6 Bank are also available to Lanistar users. A simple interface, a multitude of financial features, and a virtual card that can be used for online and daily payments ranging from weekly groceries to a new pair of shoes all exist on Lanistar, for example.
However, there are also aspects of Lanistar which make it unique. One such example is the app’s upcoming cryptocurrency exchange, which by the end of its integration in May, will be an industry first.
A cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency which is redefining our ideas of money and finance. Like other currencies, it can be used to make purchases in virtual and even some physical spaces, however, it can also be bought, traded, and sold, much like a stock. This is because the value of cryptocurrencies is constantly shifting, with some of these shifts in value being drastic.
Accessing the crypto market can be challenging for those new to it. Lanistar is bridging the gap by bringing the ease of use seen on its app to its crypto exchange, making use of the crypto exchange intuitive, even to those who have never accessed the crypto market before.
Furthermore, by the end of May, Lanistar plans also to have their app capable of sending and receiving cryptocurrency, which would be an industry first. For crypto users, Lanistar would exist as a one-stop shop for their financial needs, and for others, Lanistar exists as a gateway into the crypto world.
