Since launch 9 months ago, bnc10 has grown rapidly, hitting 40,000 active customers not only in the home market of Barcelona and Spain, but also in more than 20 countries across Europe.

bnc10 has developed its entire platform internally enabling fast development and products, leveraging Fintech partners like Mastercard, PFS and Mitek.
In bnc10 we make it happen:
- June 2019: Fast development in 12 months partnering with MasterCard and PFS
- Oct 2019: Public launch with Spanish IBAN, Prepaid Card and P2P payments
- Mar 2020: Google & Apple Pay launch in the middle of Covid break

Next steps: bnc10 plans to keep growing in the home market of Spain, with expansion throughout Europe and Latin America, obtain its own EMI licence and boost monetisation through pay-per-use premium products.
