Recently in a German magazine was again an article about the blockchain. Again it was stated how great the technology is and how awesome the new future will be. And of course a prediction of big banking extinction was stated. I have to admit, there is something wrong with the current banking systems. We read nearly daily about some data leaks in Fintechs as well as banks, we have not the products, people wish for financing their houses or to save money. But to blame the Banks is one thing, but to forecast a peer to peer world is from my point of view to far reaching.
What all happened to the banks in the last years? With the fall of Lehmann Brothers the situation which should have never happen could be seen. With the downturn of interest rates, a big part of banks business is lost and much more severe, the normal way of recapitalization and playing on the interest band is no longer possible. And if this would not be enough, we have more and more regulations for banks and on the other side young smart Fintechs that attack the banks in their own home turf Business.
Until 2018 all banks have to establish an open standard for application programming interfaces (Application Programming Interfaces, API) that gives the client the chance to manage their accounts at different institutions with one app on the smartphone. As it is pretty a progress to get a technical support from our regulators, but it opens the door for some not so welcome friends, the transparency and the domino effect.
Within the last weeks more and more expressions of negative experiences in Iran reached us. In different opportunities, when it seemed to be appropriate, mostly representatives from mid-size companies complained about the minimal success. We always saw a much more differentiated picture, our expectations are still positive and our mood is still good. So this was reason enough for us to find out, what the swift of mood can be caused.
As it was recently in the news, US have sent 400 Million Dollar in cash on pallets to Iran. Everyone was guessing about the circumstances of the deal and the possible conspiracies behind the deal. I think the topic with the pallets is worth to risk a closer look.
