Now the API community is joining forces.

Xignite, which bundles and distributes financial data via API, or application programming interface, today, unveiled a network of APIs called the #FintechRevolution API Ecosystem. That the site features a photo of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, the Argentine Marxist revolutionary and guerrilla leader, should tell you something about the initiative.

In all, 21 companies are contributing their APIs, most of which focus on investment, rather than retail banking. The APIs at least theoretically allow a company or startup to circumvent traditional financial services providers.

Here are the companies in the “revolution”:
