Advanced Scripting in Personal Banking

/Code / Big Ideas

Banking is archaic. The digital tools available to us to manage our money are simply online forms of the traditional paper methods available before the personal computer. Except they aren’t even as useful as some cash methods.

I propose a banking system which allows for users to create rules and scripts which are executed for each transaction. This framework would allow for a bank’s customers to manage their money in ways which work best for them. This system would also allow for users to share their methodology (whether it be in budgeting, debt reduction, savings, or anything else) without having to teach the process of that methodology; they could simply share a file or text snippet which could be uploaded to their friends’ accounts and implement the system automatically.
