Australia could receive within the next 18 months, a crypto-Bank. So the Plan of Fred Schebesta, one of the youngest Self-made millionaires in the country is at the very least. The new Bank would be the first of its kind for the Australian continent.

While in Germany there are heated discussions about the UPS and downs of Bitcoin and the likes continue, it is in the southern hemisphere just easier to keep a cool head. Fred Schebesta, a 26-year-old entrepreneur talent and co-founder of the comparison portal is shown by the much quoted speech of a “crypto bubble” a little impressed:

“The people were talking of a bubble, as the price of Bitcoin stood at 10 dollars, 100 dollars, 1,000 dollars. After the 100-U.S.-Dollar mark he has dropped to about twelve dollars, which is significantly lower than the fall of 20,000 US dollars to 6,000 US dollars“,

Schebesta said the Australian news site Be crypto-Optimism is reflected in a new “billion Dollar project”: He wants to establish Australia’s first crypto Bank.

The interest is “booming”

Just because the price of Bitcoin fell to its record high, and people’s angry encounter, whether the confused currencies with a dwindling interest in Crypto. Quite the contrary:

“The interest is booming. I was at Consensus in New York, along with 8,000 others. […] New technologies are being developed, it is like the Transition from Basic to DOS. Bitcoin is like Gold, it is just lying around, do his thing and continue to run. I don’t think Bitcoin is going to die.“

With the growing adaptation of the demand for financial gains currencies services for owners of Crypto, so Schebesta. His Vision of an Australian crypto-Bank, one step closer, Schebesta bought “substantial” shares in the West Australian Bank Goldfields Money. The Bank is subject to as an “Authorised Deposit-taking Institution” (an Authorized custodian ADI) of the Australian financial Supervisory authority, APRA. Through the collaboration with Goldfields Schebesta want to skip applying for a own FDI-licensing at APRA. The Bank has a market capitalization of 35 million Australian dollars to the small fish – it was a gift:

“It is a small Business, but a Bank – and in Western Australia, the only Bank with ADI-license”,

so Schebesta. Also, you can see the example of the German Bank that size and Profit should not always proportional:

“Deutsche Bank has 98.720 employees. She has made in the first quarter of 146 million US dollars in Profit. Binance about 300 employees and in the same period, 200 million US-Dollar profit. Something’s going on here.“

This Schebesta focuses primarily on the potential business with crypto credits. Finally, the lending of money, the backbone of the Fiat economy. Loans for crypto-currencies, these would be “transported to a whole new Level”.

Not a newbie in the crypto space

Schebesta had been before the announcement of the plans for a crypto Bank with his Finger in the business with the digital money. The comparison of crypto-currencies is on the of him and Frank Restuccia based Portal possible. In addition, he operates with colleague Restuccia a cryptographic exchange, called HiveEx, whose weekly transaction to move the volume in the million Dollar range. With HiveSpend a Service to paying BPAY bills followed.

Schebesta familiar with his new project on his entrepreneurial instinct that have made to success:

“The Compare was not a big business, because the Australians have not compared really. But I bet that would change and invested a lot of. In the case of crypto-currencies, I assume that people want to have their own currency and against the Fiat currencies to hedge.“
