  • The world wide web changed almost every aspect of business over the last 20 years. The last place to have been mostly unaffected is the world of banking and finance. Now this is finally changing.\n
  • I will specifically talk about business and retail banking. I think investment banks while under attack for many real and imagined reasons already understand many of these things reasonably well.\n

  • Innovation is what causes most real growth. The world needs innovation.\n
  • \n

  • \n
  • Tech executives swear by Clayton Christensen’s famous book\nexisting cash cows destroy innovation cycle\nYou are now in the tech industry and need to read and understand this.\n\n
  • Original e-money legislation\nFew real startups applied, too expensive\nPayPal, Telcoms\nRumor is banks pushed for strong rules to protect their business\n
  • You now see actual startups applying, but most real innovators will still find it hard to play.\n
  • \n
  • Can’t use banks work around them\n
  • A prepaid credit system used within a business or platform.\nSell in 7/11, Gas stations, by mobile phone, credit card etc.\n
  • \n
  • Platform for creating virtual currencies\n
  • Person 2 Person credit around the banks\n
  • Fund projects using donations instead of equity. \nPressure on SEC to allow small value equity offerings.\n
  • Growing in Germany, England, Canada and US.\nCommunity currencies and time banks are going around national currencies.\n
  • Still small but growing.\nSemi anonymous, can’t be shut down\nKiller feature is zero barrier to entry for developers\n20+ copycats on the way\n
  • \n
  • Lots of resources distributed on the internet. \nEach with a URL\nRequest / Response\n
  • A web shopping cart connects to a payment gateway on the web\nPayment gateway like PayPal sends messages to banks through the dark net\n
  • All assets including banks are accessible via the web directly\nNo need for chains of intermediaries\n
  • banks, assets, ecommerce sites allow 3rd party applications to aggregate data for consumer\n
  • Many startups hate them for freezing funds. \nNecessary risk mitigation due to fundamental insecurities in banks existing messaging models.\n
  • The web was built on standards\n
  • The banks own standards wont work. They come from the world of \nleased lines and batch jobs. \nFundamentally different technology than the web.\n
  • Very simple standard using HTTP (the web protocol) and OAuth for security as used by facebook and twitter.\n\nExperienced web developer only needs this slide to develop with it.\n
  • Each asset type has a unique url\n
  • EU funded project to create open banking standards. Focus on transparency.\n
  • E commerce standard. Offer/Acceptance/Payment\n
  • W3C is web standard group\nInitially merging OpenTransact and PaySwarm.\n
  • \n
  • Old telecoms standards have been replaced by VOIP. \nStill monopolies so not ideal example\n
  • I am not talking about a marketing site or online banking. \n\nYour core business should be exposed on the web.\n
  • \n
  • KYC large barrier to entry \nUse tiered account scheme balancing KYC and max balances\n
  • Very different technologies, very different skills\n
  • It is vital that this comes from the top\nMy experience says IT staff are worst offenders\nApple II vs Mac, Altavista vs DEC\n
  • Let startups deal with Mobile, NFC, Reporting, Shopping cart integration etc.\n
