Innovative company Lanistar, a fintech backed by over 3,000 of the world’s biggest influencers, has opened its doors and begun to accept user registrations ahead of its product launch in January 2021.

In conjunction, the brand and its cohort of influencer co-owners are unleashing a coordinated marketing campaign across social media platforms worldwide. Based on the cumulative reach of its influencers, the brand aims to rack up 1 billion unique social media impressions on day one. With sign-ups expected to be in the millions.

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. And behind its service is a 150-strong, multilingual customer support team dedicated to making everything hassle free.

Lanistar’s signature Volt card is the world’s most secure card. The card includes its own keypad and display – a global first – allowing users to generate one-time PINs and CVV2 codes which expire after one use.

Thanks to its polymorphic technology, the card also allows users to add up to eight bank cards on the Lanistar card and swap between them using the keypad. The cards will also have limited personal details on the card itself to protect users.

People can use a Lanistar card anywhere that Mastercard is accepted globally, and can pay with and convert multiple currencies including Euros, Danish Krone, Bulgarian Lev, Norwegian Krone, Polish Zloty, Hungarian Forint, and more.

Within the app, users can monitor activity across all of their payment methods including Lanistar, change the payment card used up to seven days after a payment was made, set financial goals, and round up and split payments. Users will be able to sign up for three types of account: Chrome (free), Chrome X (£3.99/month early bird)(£5.99/month), Chrome Volt (£14.99/month early bird) (£19.99/month) , each with varying benefits.

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. 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.

Speaking to The Commentator, Gurhan Kiziloz, CEO and founder at Lanistar, said “We’ve been planning for this day for over a year now, so I’m thrilled to be releasing Lanistar to the world to change the fintech landscape and give consumers a secure and superior customer experience.

Kiziloz continued, "This is the first step in our goal to reach a one-billion-pound valuation and break records in our space, and we look forward to growing our user base ahead of our card launch in early 2021.”
