Roll up, roll up. Big tech firms want to become banks!
At this stage, we’ve all seen the headlines. Whether it’s Google’s checking accounts, Facebook’s cryptocurrency or Amazon’s lending ambitions, Silicon Valley players and their designs on financial services have sparked much speculation into what the end-game for banking looks like.
