British Fintech company Curve OS, founded by Israeli Shachar Bialick, is back online after a three-day outage following Wirecard AG’s recent collapse. According to the company, all card and e-money issuing services were brought in-house from Mastercard, accelerating a long-planned migration. Curve has also transitioned to Checkout.com, severing all ties with Wirecard. Curve had previously relied on Wirecard Card Solutions Limited, a Wirecard subsidiary based in the UK whose assets had been frozen by the local authorities, for all its financial transactions, and as a result, all associated Curve transaction and money transfer services were suspended.
