    How does it “disrupt the existing legacy payment silos in banks” ?

    Sash: They build payment processing software that allows banks to keep more of the payment processing in-house vs farming it out to other banks. Thus allowing banks to keep more of the transaction fees, process more types of payments, increase speed, etc.
