Bangalore: While many people believe that they don’t have enough money to have a bank account, there are few others who hate to deal with the banks, as they have lost trust in them.

Everyone would definitely love the new offers and plans that banks provide. But, it has been observed that many banks are taking advantage by digging people with ATM fees or overdraft protection. This is the main reason people have started losing trust on their bank offers and started looking for alternatives.

Here is a list of bank alternatives, compiled by Bankrate.com.

An U.S. based, ‘The Mt.’ Gox is the only website that is mainly responsible in handling most dollar-to-bitcoin conversions.

Donald Norman, co-founder of Bitcoin Consultancy, said “One of bitcoin's best uses is for making global peer-to-peer payments. Transferring bitcoins to someone else is usually free. To send cash payments elsewhere, you usually have to pay fees.”
