Join the Plaid lawsuit if you’ve ever used Coinbase, Venmo, Robinhood, or dozens of other apps.
Plaid, a middleman connecting bank accounts to other fintech services, says it’s been used by tens of millions in North America.

For its part, Plaid has denied any wrongdoing and argued it was transparent about its practices.
I filed a claim and look forward to getting my US$5.00.
