That condition is more fundamental: it is established in Article ...

The small print of Chime says: Banking services provided by The Bancorp Bank or Stride Bank, N.A. I take this to mean that Chime is essentially a marketing front for those two banks, and that the actual accounts are managed by one of the two partners.
