Fintech is a rising sector that is allowing newcomers to bring together various solutions under one roof. One of the most important solutions is in the payment domain as well as cryptotrading. NAGA group launches bank application that combines banking, trading, social traing and crypto trading. “NAGA Pay is an ambitious project with great growth potential. In recent years we have gained a lot of experience in building a real-time trading platform with a clear monetization model across a wide range of asset classes. Our trading app and our cryptocurrency platform have processed millions of transactions. In parallel, our NAGA Card programme, which offers our customers a prepaid Mastercard and a European IBAN account, has shown very promising growth rates. We have also followed the projects in the multi-billion NEO-Banking / Challenger-Bank segment very closely and have created all the prerequisites to become part of this segment. Hence, we have decided to combine all our expertise in NAGA Pay and are currently developing a super app for mobile banking and investing. The entry into the payment vertical underlines the FinTech character of our company and will offer us new customer acquisition and growth opportunities without losing our focus on the core business”, says Benjamin Bilski, founder and CEO of The NAGA Group AG.
NAGA Pay will be launched around the beginning of Q4 2020 as a separate native iOS- and Android app. The app combines the offer of a prepaid credit card, a European IBAN bank account with limits of up to € 200,000 per year and complete banking functions such as SEPA transfers. In addition to real-time money transfers and money management, NAGA customers can trade over 400 stocks from 9 global stock exchanges free of charge, as well as copy other top traders with one click. The offer is completed with the integration of the NAGA Wallet and NAGAX, so that customers can buy and sell physical cryptocurrencies with NAGA Pay and make blockchain-based deposits and withdrawals.
In April, NAGA achieved a strong revenue result of around € 2.2 million and a preliminary net profit of around € 0.6 million and therefore continued the strong growth and earnings momentum built in Q1 (Q1: revenues € 7.0 million, net profit €2.1m). In addition, a new record number of registrations was recorded in April, which can be seen as the foundation for further growth. NAGA is also delighted to report that the first transactions of the NAGA China project were processed during May, with management expecting further growth in the course of Q3 and especially Q4.
“We are fully dedicated to growth, we want to keep the momentum high and continue to show how much potential there is in NAGA’s unique platform and our business model. Another focus of the next few months will be the optimization of acquisition costs, sustainable growth and, above all, the addition of new personnel, as we have just posted around 30 new vacancies,” concludes Benjamin Bilski.
