Do we trust banking institutions fullstop currently ?

I do personally think we'd be better off with less banks in the world. More major ones like we had ages ago.

Shouldn't have bailed them out imo, but that's another thing.

On a side note, the processing of the data involved in only an hours worth of transactions is incredibly massive.

U can't do it in Excel
