    Operational Timeline: Wind.App has been operational since 2022, providing a comprehensive suite of financial services, while Stripe’s recent re-entry into crypto marks a strategic shift in its payment offerings for the future.

    Limitation: Stripe’s operation is limited to on-ramp only while Wind App is leading with on-ramp, off-ramp, payouts, Enterprise API, and many more to come. It indicates a sharp edge of Wind App over Stripe!
