Travis Tyler from neobank 86 400 suggests the pandemic has had a bigger impact on the future of banking than the banking royal commission. He notes hygiene concerns have prompted an increase in the number of people using digital wallets in preference to traditional wallets, with financial broker firm Savvy revealing almost 50 per cent of Australians have set up a digital wallet in the past year, while almost half of those people surveyed by Savvy prefer paying with their digital wallet. Marcus Crafter, a developer with digital bank Up, claims that Australians are "never going back to cash".
