Sucharov to Play a Key Role

Sucharov will be working with the C-Suite product at Citizen and has praised the service and stated he is looking forward to playing a key part in the next phase of the product’s development.

Coming from an iGaming background, from the moment I saw the technology that underpins Citizen’s payment solution I understood the potential of the product. Whilst on the surface open banking is about secure payments, I believe the added ability to link users to their bank accounts and prove ownership through multi-factor authentication will be a game-changer in industries that are a target for fraud or that have rigorous know-your-customer (KYC) requirements.
