Banking has existed for centuries as the main currency exchange and business system. Banking began in the first century when merchants lent the grain to farmers and other necessary items to artisans and merchants. Over time, banking has evolved into a highly organized system that we now know. The development of cryptocurrencies has caused a fundamental change in business and transactions development.
