Plaid scrapes bank credentials to enable challengers vs banks. VISA seems to be officially taking a stand with fintechs and challengers. So a bank can no longer piss off VISA & refuse scraping.

But here's my bigger bet. Using this, VISA will launch a competitor to FICO.

It'll serve as a means for VISA to even more strategically target customers for its financial products/services.
