Did you see www.coinsummit.it yet? I can't afford the £900 price tag, but it's unquestionably the key event this year in London. Also if you don't already have a bitcoin wallet download one - there's a great demo.

Add a new address (effectively open an account). It takes one click, and you're done, it's instant. Granted there are potential KYC implications, but if we can teach people or make it easy to manage private keys - you'd effectively remove the need for KYC permanently.


Dead on Chris. I'd add that it will not just be an 'outsider'. I believe it will be a misunderstood outsider that either noticed but not understood (Bitcoin) or not even noticed and just creeps up on the industry without originally appearing to be competition (examples, retail and Amazon, or advertising and Google)
