What is Digital Banking?

What is Digital Banking?
Digital banking is at the core of today’s financial system. However, this wasn’t always the case. Banking has come along way, from going to your local teller and requesting funds, all the way to keeping your crypto insured and safe. Nowadays, nearly every bank offers some form of digital banking to its customers.
What is Digital Banking?
Digital banking sometimes referred to as e-banking slowly emerged over the last few decades. Importantly, digital banking portals allow banks to provide customers with access to traditional banking services via their PC or smart device. These services save customers and the bank time and money. Consequently, they are more popular than ever.

The History of Digital Banking
The earliest forms of digital banking emerged in the 1960s. It was at this time the world began to see the first ATMs and debit cards introduced. These products were revolutionary for a couple of reasons. For one, for the first time in history, banking customers could access their funds 24/7. Remember, up until this point, you needed to go down to your local branch to withdraw or deposit funds. Depending on where you lived, this process could take considerable time.
The introduction of the internet changed digital banking forever. At first, banks relied on the internet for internal functionalities such as monitoring accounts or fund transfers. However, by the late 1990s, banks began offering services such as balance updates and fund transfers directly from the digital banking portal. By this point, digital banking was on its way to becoming a major trend.
In less than a decade, the internet saw a huge expansion in capabilities. The added data transmission and improved computer manufacturing techniques led to the creation of Smartphones. Today, it’s hard to imagine life without your smartphone. These handy pocket PCs enabled banks to offer a full suite of products from their portals.

Consequently, a host of new services emerged because of the availability of smartphones. Features such as photo check cashing began to emerge in the market place. This feature allows clients to deposit checks by taking a picture on their cell phone via their banking app.
Given all of the advantages digital banking brings to the sector, it’s easy to see why today, every bank offers some form of digital banking to its clients. Both clients and banks have much to gain from this hi-tech integration.
Digital Banking Benefits
Digital banking is far more convenient for both bank and customers. Customers save valuable time and resources by not having to go to a physical location. Additionally, their transactions are more secure because they don’t require the client to travel with funds in hand.
Importantly, the push for digital banking came mostly from the bankers. Banks gain huge amounts of flexibility and savings via e-banking portals. The money saved on infrastructure can go to further development of their online interfaces. Online banking eliminates much of the hiring, security, rent, and random customer needs such as deposit slips from the banking business model.
Digital Banking vs Online Banking
The field of e-banking has led to major evolutions within the financial sector. Originally, e-banking portals existed to help supplement brick and mortar banks. Today, that’s not the case as more online-only banks emerge.

https://preview.redd.it/9ppe0pr8xmr51.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8f5af69103a51cd336b23198819e84fcab668264
Over the last five years, Online-only banks have become a major trend in the market. These firms possess no physical location. As such, clients can conduct all transactions via their PC or smartphone. In most instances, these bank’s client base stretches across the country.
Benefits of e-Banking
As more digital banks appear in the market, it’s important to understand the benefits they introduce. Digital banks are able to be more flexible in who they provide services to, and how they acquire clients. Additionally, studies have shown that customers prefer banks with digital banking portals over their traditional counterparts.

https://preview.redd.it/i5cqke6cxmr51.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=da39a2f3b0a55ac8bbc9b9791713c8b9e625349a
Easier to Join
The integration of KYC and AML protocols into online banking onboarding changed everything. Now, banks could gain new clients, while remaining compliant, via their online portal. To accomplish this monumental tasks, e-banking onboarding procedures include ID verification systems. Here potential clients must provide a large number of documents, such as ID Proofs, employment proof, address, etc.
Smartphones allow clients to provide these documents in pristine digital quality. Importantly, the digital banking platform automatically extrapolates and processes the relevant data via preprogrammed protocols. This strategy saves the bank and customer valuable time.
Discussing the evolution, Nnamdi Azodo of ALAT Digital Bank spoke on the importance of streamlining the banking sector. He described e-banking as the “application of technology to every banking activity.” Azodo explained that digital banking is the future of banking and that to remain competitive, all banks must embrace these upgrades.
24 Hour Banking
One of the biggest upgrades digital banking brings to the sector is accessibility. Remember, before the dawn of e-banking, you had to go down to your local branch. While in some instances, such as requesting a loan, a personal approach may be what you desire, in most instances, such as a deposit, there is no benefit to in-person transactions.
Digital banking allows you to access your account information and market transactions 24-hours a day and across the globe. This international accessibility helped to push the global economy forward. Now, digital banking is at the core of our global financial system.
Cost Savings
In the old days, banks spent large portions of their earnings on processes such as verification and accounting. Thankfully, computers removed much of this workload for banks. Today, automation plays a critical role in modern banking systems. Automation saves banks money and time when conduction the most common transactions.
Digitization reduces the steps involved in transactions, it also reduces the staff required. Digital banks save a ton on employee and upkeep costs. These costs can then be passed down to customers. These savings are part of the reason why digital banks continue to see widespread adoption globally.
Blockchain Technology
The advent of blockchain technology has pushed digital banking to new heights. Blockchain technology provides banks with a more efficient and transparent alternative to the status quo. This revolutionary technology allows banks to eliminate many of the third-party verification systems currently in place. Consequently, it provides banks with huge cost savings and a more secure platform to conduct transactions within.

Crypto Digital Banks
Aside from ushering in a new era of efficiency, blockchain tech also introduced the world to cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin continue to draw investor interests. Consequently, the emergence of these new financial instruments has created a unique opportunity within the e-banking sector — crypto banks.

https://preview.redd.it/dk8ba70jxmr51.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=721760bf8745900366cee8caf16015f4e913705f
Cryptocurrency digital banks provide traditional banking services to crypto clients such as service providers, investors, or exchanges. For example, a crypto bank allows you to store, save, spend, and transfer cryptocurrencies from the banking portal. This style of banking has grown in popularity over the last five years in tandem with the growth of cryptocurrency use.
Digital Banking — Banking for the World
A new trend in the market is the use of AI to streamline banking processes. Advanced AI algorithms are able to determine the eligibility and qualifications of clients automatically. For example, the online loan you applied for last week may never go in front of a real human. Instead, a bank’s AI system will determine your eligibility for the funding using a set of pre-programmed criteria.

https://preview.redd.it/q5royl9kxmr51.jpg?width=640&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=986d6f6fe7e05359c80651b6b91e5d35dbce7609
Digital Banking continues to see growth within the financial sector. Importantly, a multitude of major banking institutions diverted funds from the creation of new branches into e-banking platform upgrades recently. You can expect this trend to continue as the digitization of the market expands. For now, a digital bank could be the perfect solution to all of your banking needs during the coronavirus pandemic.

1200s-1300s During the 13th century bankers from north Italy, collectively known as Lombards, gradually replace the Jews in their traditional role as money-lenders to the rich and powerful. – Florence, Venice and Genoa - The Bardi and Peruzzi Families dominated banking in 14th century Florence, establishing branches in many other parts of Europe
1200 By the time Marco Polo visited China they’d move from coins to paper money, who introduced the concept to Europe. An inscription warned, "All counterfeiters will be decapitated." Before the use of paper, the Chinese used coins that were circular, with a rectangular hole in the middle. Several coins could be strung together on a rope. Merchants in China, if they became rich enough, found that their strings of coins were too heavy to carry around easily. To solve this problem, coins were often left with a trustworthy person, and the merchant was given a slip of paper recording how much money they had with that person. Marco Polo's account of paper money during the Yuan Dynasty is the subject of a chapter of his book, The Travels of Marco Polo, titled "How the Great Kaan Causeth the Bark of Trees, Made Into Something Like Paper, to Pass for Money All Over his Country."

1577 Newspaper in Korea
1586 The Babington Plot
1590 Cabinet Noir was established in France. Its mission was to open, read and reseal letters, and great expertise was developed in the restoration of broken seals. In the knowledge that mail was being opened, correspondents began to develop systems to encrypt and decrypt their letters. The breaking of these codes gave birth to modern systematic scientific code breaking.
1600s Promissory banknotes began in London
1600s By the early 17th century banking begins also to exist in its modern sense - as a commercial service for customers rather than kings. – Late 17th century we see cheques slowly gains acceptance
The total of the money left on deposit by a bank's customers is a large sum, only a fraction of which is usually required for withdrawals. A proportion of the rest can be lent out at interest, bringing profit to the bank. When the customers later come to realize this hidden value of their unused funds, the bank's profit becomes the difference between the rates of interest paid to depositors and demanded from debtors.
The transformation from moneylenders into private banks is a gradual one during the 17th and 18th centuries. In England it is achieved by various families of goldsmiths who early in the period accept money on deposit purely for safe-keeping. Then they begin to lend some of it out. Finally, by the 18th century, they make banking their business in place of their original craft as goldsmiths.
1605 Newspaper in Straussburg
c1627 Great Cipher
1637 Wampum is declared as legal tender in the U.S. (where we got the slang word “clams” for money)
1656 Johan Palmstruch establishes the Stockholm Banco
1661 Paper Currency reappears in Europe, soon became common - The goldsmith-bankers of London began to give out the receipts as payable to the bearer of the document rather than the original depositor
1661 Palmstruch issues credit notes which can be exchanged, on presentation to his bank, for a stated number of silver coins
1666 Stockholms Banco, the predecessor to the Central Bank of Sweden issues the first paper money in Europe. Soon went bankrupt for printing too much money.
1667 He issues more notes than his bank can afford to redeem with silver and winds up in disgrace, facing a death penalty (commuted to imprisonment) for fraud.
1668 Bank of Sweden – today the 2nd oldest surviving bank
1694 First Central Bank established in the UK was the first bank to initiate the permanent issue of banknotes
Served as model for most modern central banks.
The modern banknote rests on the assumption that money is determined by a social and legal consensus. A gold coin's value is simply a reflection of the supply and demand mechanism of a society exchanging goods in a free market, as opposed to stemming from any intrinsic property of the metal. By the late 17th century, this new conceptual outlook helped to stimulate the issue of banknotes.
1700s Throughout the commercially energetic 18th century there are frequent further experiments with bank notes - deriving from a recognized need to expand the currency supply beyond the availability of precious metals.
1710 Physiocracy
1712 First commercial steam engine
1717 Master of the Royal Mint Sir Isaac Newton established a new mint ratio between silver and gold that had the effect of driving silver out of circulation (bimetalism) and putting Britain on a gold standard.

By the mid 1800’s they dominated the banking industry, lending to governments around the world and people such as the Vanderbilts, Carnegies, and Cecil Rhodes.
1745 There was a gradual move toward the issuance of fixed denomination notes in England standardized printed notes ranging from £20 to £1,000 were being printed.
1748 First recorded use of the word buck for a dollar, stemming from the Colonial period in America when buck skins were commonly traded
1757 Colonial Scrip Issued in US

1769 First steam powered car
1775-1938 US Diplomatic Codes & Ciphers by Ralph E Weber used – problems were security and distribution

JP Morgan and others gathered to create an image of concern and stability in the face of the panic, which eventually led to the formation of the Federal Reserve. The founders of the Federal Reserve pretended like the bankers were opposed to the idea of its formation in order to mislead the public into believing that the Federal Reserve would help to regulate bankers when in fact it really gave even more power to private bankers, but in a less transparent way.

Brainstorming ideas

A small college president asked me to come up with an idea for how they can become more entrepreneurial and attract a different kind of student. I thought about proposing a small business incubator, with potentially several of the businesses being able to collab. For example, an accounting business could do taxes for all of the other businesses. One business could take over a dining hall, and feed the workers in the other businesses. One business could manufacture and run Bitcoin ATM machines. Not to mention starting businesses in the local community, perhaps things like a dance club or theater group that primarily serve the students but also the community.

So, because I love me some bitcoin, and I think it would be a fun "gimmick" if nothing else, I was thinking whether it would make sense to tie these shops together under bitcoin. I'd imagine something like students getting paid in bitcoin, paying for lunch with bitcoin, paying for tutoring with bitcoin, etc. For that to work, I was thinking the students would need some kind of app downloaded and installed on all of their phones, and there would need some kind of backup system with cards for students without a smart phone, or people in the community. Then, since these would all be businesses, there would need to be some kind of easy to use ledger system, so that income could be counted efficiently, but not all deposits would be income, nor all withdrawals payments. After all, sometimes people would need to loan money to each other, and other times they'd be paying each other for tutoring. Payments for food would need to be categorized differently than payments for gas to drive for work. Some payments, like the gas, would be in dollars and have to be converted to bitcoin, so there might need to be a physical credit card tied to a bitcoin account.

So my questions are:
1) Is there some kind of fully functional ledgepayment app for android and iphones that would assist in categorizing different payments, run on the lightning network (because we would need to support small payments), where payments could be categorized in the app, or with a browser for students without androids/iphones, and the data could be downloaded in a friendly way for a tax accountant?
2) Is there a convenient way to integrate that with a physical credit card for dollar denominated purchases?
3) Would there be any significant tax implications for the students or business owners?
4) Is it just too soon in Bitcoin's evolution to attempt something like this?

I'd appreciate any other (constructive) thoughts as well. I certainly don't have it all figured out in my head, I just started thinking about it tonight, and figured y'all, who preach adoption, would have good ideas on how to facilitate adoption.

First Experience with Bitcoin ATM

So I discovered that there was a bitcoin ATM located a fair distance away from where I live (about 40 min or so) and decided to try it out and sell some BTC for USD. I'm a fairly experienced bitcoin user of about two years now so I think it's safe to say I know what I am doing. Despite this experience though, I still had issues with the ATM.
After confirming my identity through a phone verification it asked me how much I wanted to sell. At a fee of 13% I decided to sell about $150 in BTC. They provide their wallet QR code and I scan it. The whole process took about 5 minutes which I believe is a normal amount of time for a fiat ATM as well. The machine provided me with a receipt that had my transaction info on it and a redemption code with which I could redeem for my USD. However, I didn't consider that the transaction needed to be confirmed. I realized this and still wasn't upset by the experience at all so left and came back after the transaction had been confirmed.
Even after it was confirmed I still couldn't withdraw my money though. Despite that it was, the machine believed that it hadn't yet been confirmed even though it had been about 15 min and both my wallet and blockchain.info verified it was confirmed. I was annoyed at this point but chalked it up to the machine requiring a certain amount of confirmations before it could release the USD. So, I ended up leaving and coming back a few hours later when it had well over 50 confirmations. It still didn't release the money insisting that it wasn't confirmed yet. I've gone ahead and emailed the owner of the ATM already to get back my BTC, but I just wanted to share my experience with you all.
If we want bitcoin ATM's to become mainstream, we need to work out the issues with them. If I were a first time user of bitcoin I would be completely turned off to it after this experience. In my opinion this includes reducing the confirmation time. mentioning somewhere on the ATM how many confirmations are required so the user can estimate his/her wait, providing reasonable fees (imagine having a 13% fee when exchanging USD for EURO), assuring there are no bugs with the ATM, and providing a more secure way to access the ATM later. Seriously, with the receipt I had anyone could have just taken it from me and I'd be out around $150.
Tl;Dr - Had issues with BTC ATM. Emailed ATM owner. Some things to help BTC ATM's go mainstream are reducing the confirmation time. mentioning somewhere on the ATM how many confirmations are required so the user can estimate his/her wait, providing reasonable fees, assuring there are no bugs with the ATM, and providing a more secure way to access the ATM later.
UPDATE: The manufacturer contacted me and resolved my issue. They also offered to send me bitcoin for my troubles. Despite this I will probably use the ATM again since it is the only nearby ATM that I know of. Hopefully, and I believe, this really was just a one time issue since I haven't seen anyone else complain.
