medialAxisA really interesting (IMO) talk[1] by Simon Dixon, of BnkToTheFuture.com, on blockchain and banks. If you haven't the time, or the inclination, to view it all you can jump to 30mins to hear his predictions of how things may pan out. For instance, banks becoming more like P2P lenders but still with t...
