Interesting to know
How old is virtual banking service?
You are mistaken if you think that 3-4. All 24! The first systems that allowed remote viewing of bank accounts appeared in the United States as early as 1981 – they were called At-Home Banking. Later, with the development of Internet technologies, systems with elements of online banking have evolved somewhat more actively. In 1995, the first virtual bank in the world, Security First Network Bank, appeared in the USA, which offered users to make full use of the communication and service capabilities of the Internet. In fact, it did not receive mass distribution because of the total distrust of potential customers to electronic technologies. However, the evolution of virtual solutions began, and nothing could stop it.
