Bank means - Trust. You need some kind of trust to ensure the transaction is valid. Without any trust entity there is no proper way to manage the transaction. At a very high level we can always about replacing brick and mortar with virtual systems etc, but the need to system is always there.

The UK banking system has been trying to get rid of cheques and one official said they needed 'a paper-based alternative'. In other words, a cheque!

Much of what we do can be handled on-line but there will still be a need for a physical branch for some transactions.

You need Banks or such institutions to manage the transactions, interest rate and to regulate the flow of money. Now, how you do these operations can be subjective. You may need a physical branch or you can do this via online.

I think you need some type of entity, regardless of the name to handle certain financial exchanges. Today, I believe you cannot manage your day to day purchases without a bank, credit card company etc. Bitcoin has many limitations for handling day to day purchases and still most large purchases. But technology, AI, etc will significantly change banking as we know it.
