Lanistar has recently revealed its world-first polymorphic payment card, known as the Volt card.
Lanistar, a new hassle-free banking alternative, has recently revealed its world-first polymorphic payment card, known as the Volt card, and begun to accept user registrations and app downloads ahead of its upcoming product launch in January 2021. The app is now available for the App Store and Google Play.
Lanistar’s signature Volt card is the first in the world to include its own keypad and display. This allows the user to generate a one-time PIN and CVV2 code. Thanks to its polymorphic technology, the card also allows users to add up to eight bank cards to their Lanister cards and exchange them using the keypad. The card also limits the personal information of the card itself to protect the user.
Lanistar cards can be used wherever Mastercard is accepted around the world and can be paid and converted in multiple currencies such as Euro, Danish Krone, Bulgarian Lev, Norwegian Krone, Polish Zwoti and Hungarian Forinto. Within the app, users monitor activity on all payment methods, including Lanista, change payment cards used up to 7 days after payment is made, set financial goals, and round up and split paymen.
Users will be able to sign up for three types of account: Chrome (free), Chrome X (£3.99/month early bird, then £5.99/month), Chrome Volt (£14.99/month early bird, then £19.99/month)
The news comes after a major year of growth for Lanistar. The company is now backed by more than 3,000 influencers and has more than 400 staff across its offices in London (HQ), Skopje, Macedonia and Athens. Its Athens office opened in October 2020 and will act as the company’s compliance hub, while its Skopje office is a 150-strong, multilingual customer support team dedicated to making everything hassle-free.
Targeted at the Generation Z and millennial markets, the company is revolutionising how people use money by bringing polymorphic technology into the financial sector, allowing users to streamline their money with more security than any other banking service in the world.
The company, founded by Gurhan Kiziloz in 2019, aims to become the first fintech company to reach a one-billion-pound valuation within a year of launch, having already received more than £15 million in private funding so far.
