What's the Open Banking use case?
In the app, you can connect your bank accounts via Open Banking and view the most recent transactions. This feature is important if you want to become the go-to financial app on your users’ home screen.
As for payment initiation, as the name suggests, it lets you start a SEPA bank transfer from a third-party service. For instance, you can transfer money from your bank account to your Lydia wallet directly in the Lydia app. You also can move money between multiple bank accounts from Lydia.
