This idea came to me this morning as I walked past Lloyds Bank’s shiney new branding. It’s trying to be all friendly and “there for you, in the moments that matter”.
Yeah, really? The moment that matters is when I go over my overdraft limit by 70p and you charge me a £10 fee, return the direct debit causing me another £20 fee. Thanks.
The blockchain isn’t a bank, as a symbol it represents the lack of central control and helps push financial responsibility back onto the individual.
My t-shirt or header image is “I heart the blockchain *but f***king hate the banks”.
Feel free to print a tee.
