Author: Edited by Anton Shmerkin

According to McKinsey, as much as €5.7 billion will be needed to sustain the EU fintech sector through the second half of 2021. What does it have to do with customer experience? "It's simple," says Andrii Safronov, TRASTRA support team lead. "Fintechs are facing significant challenges to turn a profit. They experience a persistent hunger for the capital needed to complete their innovation cycle. Attracting new customers, improving value propositions and ultimately monetising their scale are all reasons that the most sagacious fintechs will have to refine their approach to customer service. We at TRASTRA elevate the notion of impeccable service to an absolute."

Other than the Munku-Sardyk - the highest peak of the Sayan mountains (3491m), TRASTRA's founder and CEO, Roman Potemkin, has never had any alpinist achievements worth bragging about, and that was in 2008. That is until now when after thirteen years of his climbing debut, he signed on to summit Elbrus - one of the highest and most prominent peaks in Europe. "It's one of the hardest things I ever did," says Roman after the descent, "I had to push myself physically and mentally like I never had before. But it was like a highly spiritual experience, and it's fair to say that a mountain inspires in a way that is virtually incomparable with anything else in life"

But the fierce competition between legacy remittance companies trying to lure customers into their embrace is a sure sign of greater things to come. Established remittance companies have got to be shaking in their boots, looking at the speed, convenience, high liquidity, independence, and reliability of crypto
