This paper studies the advantages and challenges of digital payments. Large banks are transformed into platforms that share clients without losing control of the business. We are facing an open banking that combines finance and technology offering safety in a digital environment. These changes involve important regulatory challenges. The model of the European Union becomes a universal reference. It forces Banks to share customer data with technology firms. It prioritizes giving clients the power over their data with the security offered by the access through APIs. It gets right by combining financial regulation with data protection. It encourages innovation in a regulated framework. The objective is to reconcile innovation with the safety and stability of the financial system.
