This seems like a promising alternative to Simple, which shut down a few months ago

I think we really have to take a step back away from this annoying scrolling / auto-moving element behavior for product info pages. I had a moment where my mouse was chasing a moving 'Loans' tile.

Yeah, another app-only bank. Or at least that what it seems. The desktop site in unreadable. Giant fonts.

So I'll assume they're like the rest - shitty / no customer support outsourced to god who knows, and they'll change "shifts" every 10 minutes.

No thank you, I'll stay with the good old, dinosaur banks.

I guess at some point, starting a business will be equivalent to downloading the square business app.

2021 is a great time to own a small regional / community bank. All the mature FinTech companies are trying to buy a bank to expedite the cumbersome bank chartering process (+ mortgage origination and servicing companies are too)

Warning: The site has some funky scrolling, but if you keep going there is more information that eventually shows up.

The brutalist website design for this new product is suffocating. Tried it on many browser widths on my desktop.
