Founded in 2013, Chime offers checking accounts with no monthly fees or overdrafts and is very popular with low- and middle-income Americans. Chime and many major fintech technologies have grown faster than ever in history as large numbers of people shifted their spending online during a pandemic.

This sparked investor enthusiasm for FinTech startups. According to CB Insights, FinTech in the US has raised about $43 billion so far in 2021, more than double last year. (Chime raised $1.1 billion from an estimated $25 billion two months ago.) In the third quarter of 2021, one in three newly formed unicorns will be FinTech. It is a company. And 46 fintechs released in 2021, compared to 31 in 2020 overall.

With an estimate of more than $35 billion, the cost of the bell is more expensive than regional banks such as Fifth Third, M&T, and Regions.

Chime offers banking services but does not have a banking license. We partnered with Oklahoma-based Bancorp and Stride Bank to offer FDIC-guaranteed checks and savings accounts. We offer our customers a small loan of $ 200, but we have not launched a large loan product. Nearly all of Chime’s revenue comes from exchanges, a small commission paid by merchants every time a consumer buys something with a credit or debit card.
