FinTech favourite Monzo hit two milestones earlier this year, reaching 200k users and £250m spent on Monzo cards. In August 2016, Monzo was granted a limited banking license, allowing it to support pre-paid Mastercards that have to be topped up. Monzo founder Tom Blomfield expects the restrictions to be lifted "very shortly,* allowing the neobank to offer classic checking accounts.
