Is banking supposed to be destroyed?

Old methods have been used in banking for years. Sometimes it may have technological appearance but it is totally traditional and bank directors pay more attention to order rather than innovation. In banks men and women wear formal suits and never get out of a definite frame. Economic crisis whose base was bank, was the best time for startup growth. FinTech startups appeared ten years after the growth of other startups. Due to the fact that startups are new in Iran, we should not expect banking and payment startups to make big changes; but things will be changed! When you believe in something and are ready to put your energy in it, tools will provide you with things that people from around the world would join you and you can do things that are normally not easy.
