HistoryEdit

The company was created by Guillermo Vicandi and Juan Antonio Rullán de la Mata with the initial development of an application in September 2016. In February 2017, it was selected by the Plug and Play Tech Center to make a round of crowdfunding in Crowdcube in which it obtained 300,000 euros to expand.[2]

The structure of Bnext followed the same as other neobanks by not having a banking license and just a e-money license where users could load money into their cards and use it worldwide without any foreign transaction fees. The app also allows users to connect other bank accounts as a way to manage their finances.[3]
