The positive public response seems to be indicative of the app’s public appeal. Some of the features of the app include free bank accounts for users to send and receive money through and also for setting up direct debits. This is not limited to fiat currency alone as Scallop also connects to digital wallets, allowing users to conduct fiat and crypto transactions from the same app.
