Banking is no longer a place to go, but something you do.
// 根據「銀行轉型未來式Bank 3.0」的作者Brett King，他為此下了這樣的註解：「銀行不再是一個地方，而是一種行為（原文： Banking is no longer a place to go, but something you do.）」。簡而言之，「Bank 3.0」不再是以銀行為中心，而是一般大眾為主的一種生活型態與需求。 在以往Bank1.0傳統的銀行型態之下，我們可能要長途跋涉，前往銀行櫃台才能辦理許多業務，在申辦特定業務時，銀行甚至會透過問卷（KYN，know your client）篩選客戶，因此可能吃上閉門羹。隨後的Bank2.0，隨科技進展，銀行漸漸將業務系統化，包括自動櫃員機的出現、電腦化、網路化，讓我們不必在銀行上班時間才能夠辦理匯款、存放款業務，只需要透過電腦或ATM就能完成。 你可能會想那Bank 3.0 和Bank 2.0有什麼差別呢？ 就如同上述所說，Bank 3.0已經不再單單是指電子化電腦化，而是人們的消費型態轉變；是以客戶為主體的商業模式。現在我們可以在事前透過社群網路，尋找真正符合我們需求的銀行與評價較佳的銀行，這讓我們有更多選擇、主控權，而不再是銀行選擇我們，甚至我們根本不需要選擇銀行，因為有其他產業提供類似的業務且更為便利。//
