It's tough trying to build a bank. After 6yrs of trying to "break banks" Brett King's Moven only manage to open 60,000 accounts. He's since pivoted to selling his software to the banks he once scorned.
The consulting firm McKinsey estimated in a report last month that digital disruption could put $90 billion, or 25 percent of bank profits, at risk over the next three years as services become more automated and more tellers are replaced by chatbots.
