Consumers Losing Trust in Banks, Moving Towards Bitcoin

Consumers are losing trust in major banks and financial service providers. Many institutional investors, traders and most millennials are moving toward Bitcoin and fintech due to the fraudulent activities and inefficiencies of existing banks.


Recently, the Wells Fargo car loans scandal swept across the finance industry, in which Wells Fargo allegedly defrauded 800,000 car loan customers, stole 25,000 cars. Various trusted sources including Boing Boing revealed that Wells Fargo forced unwanted car insurance on borrowers, owed money to wrong accounts and increased the monthly payments of car loan payers.


“Say, for example, that a customer agreed to a monthly payment of $275 in principal and interest on her car loan, and arranged for the amount to be deducted from her bank account automatically.
