  It is difficult to take this article seriously when an early statement is 'Crypto currency could soon make paper currency a thing of the past'. I have no doubt that crypto currency will be used by a small minority of people, particularly those engaged in unlawful activities, but not as a mainstream currency. Paper currency is under threat from electronic payments, but not crypto currency.

  I know people choose banks based on security of funds, fees, ease of deposit, proximity of branch, interest rate, etc. But, TBH, I don't know anyone who chooses a bank because it's a not-for-profit bank. I've also read dozens of reports on "Ten Things To Consider When Choosing A Bank or Credit Union". I haven't seen "nonprofit" as a factor affecting choice of FI in a single report. Why should it? IME, the man on the street only has a vague understanding of what even the term nonprofit means (no, it does not mean the company does not make profits). Happy to be proven wrong if you can cite reports that say otherwise.

The Nationwide Building Society in the UK is as big as most commercial banks and has a large number of branches.
