In collaboration with the Bank of Cyprus, Crowdpolicy implemented the API Developers Portal ( to simulate and implement productive APIs based on the Open Banking standard and the APIs required for PSD2. The goal of this approach was the visual and functional integration of the Bank’s productive and Sandbox APIs with the support of value-added community activation services as well as the maturation of an API strategy. Additionally, the bocAPI ( contributes to the development and creation of new applications which will provide new experiences in banking transactions in the future.

The design of its environment aimed to achieve the following:

The API Developers Portal is used by more than 140 developers and it was also used during the BoC Hackathon ( held by the Bank of Cyprus. Through bocAPI (, developers and anyone interested can experiment with the Bank’s testing infrastructures and technologies that cover the entire range of transactions.
