American Express Backs out of Curve Partnership

After only two days American Express has ended their partnership with fintech startup Curve; Curve said that Amex’s decision was “discriminatory” and vowed to fight the decision “with our full might” according to AltFi; “American Express participated in a limited Curve beta test where we enabled a small number of card members to load funds onto an e-wallet using their Amex Card in the Curve app,” Amex said in a statement; the move is a blow to curve as they were pushing Amex as a main feature for their premium service.
