Good read and will help put peoples minds at rest that Monzo is a real bank

Something I could never figure out, but you were initially given a restricted banking license. What does this mean?

I found this on a web search

The restricted licence will let Mondo hold customer money for the first time - the crucial thing that makes a bank a bank - and let it test its products and services with a limited number of customers. Once regulators, the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority, are satisfied, they will lift the restrictions.
