I understand that general gist, but I’m not so sure that the banking is being disrupted as much as it is generally portrayed around the media and in general startup world. 

There is a 'Unicorn cull’ potentially on its way and I wonder what the market sentiment will be like after that happens and the rainbow unicorn blood soaks the turf around the world.
