With the advent of cryptocurrencies, we no longer need a bank or a financial institution to hold our savings. No more choosing and comparing payment systems for money transfers across the globe, no more experiencing the fear of losing funds due to your bank’s collapse or if the country plunges into the abyss of an economic crisis.
