SDK.finance, the European Core Payment Platform, supersedes Visa and other major players in terms of API endpoints.
Striving to deliver the best-in-class back-end platform, SDK.finance beats the giants of the payment-processing industry and other major FinTech players according to research conducted by the team.
Why does the number of API endpoints matter so much?
Pavel Sidelov, CTO @SDK.finance said: “API is a way for programs to effectively communicate with each other. It is an infrastructural foundation in a system, similar, for instance, to the electrical grid in a city. Just as a modern city cannot exist without electricity, a modern bank/payment provider cannot survive without API. The number of API endpoints shows the level of a platform’s flexibility, and hence defines the speed and scope of implementation of final products on top of the platform. To fully serve a modern customer, we need to resonate with their philosophy — providing a broad set of functionality in a fast and cost-efficient way. When we say ‘fast’ we imply hours, not months. And an API-first approach is exactly the means to achieve that. Applications built on SDK.finance are scalable, adaptable, modular, and quickly accessible.
Obviously, as such a big-name and large-scale player, Visa has been a long-lasting example and inspiration for us. But we are, however, “building a house on a brand-new piling,” so to speak. SDK.finance is a new-generation payment platform built on cutting-edge technology which is both critical today and will continue to be relevant tomorrow. Our goal is to remain on the forefront of changes and be miles ahead of our peers and the big players of the FinTech and payment industry".
Alex Malyshev, CEO @SDK.finance said: “The majority of startup entrepreneurs dream about excelling beyond their more successful peers. But that hasn’t been the case with us, to be honest — not precisely, at least. Rather, our story rests upon the relentless and dedicated work of our team towards its main objective — becoming the best technology platform for Digital Wallet Providers, Electronic Money Institutions, and Payment Service Providers across the globe. But I won't deny the fact that emerging as a leader in this API arms race, as a result, is also a nice perk!”
