The purest form on online banking is the virtual bank, where the only place they exist is in cyberspace.
These banks, and all other internet banking continue to grow in popularity because they are convenient, saving customers time and money.
To help the growth and assist customers to make the change, many traditional banks offer minimal fee or completely free transfers to help customers migrate to their online banking service.
Others will also enable you to set up online banking by simply transferring your funds by check.
Internet banking has revolutionalized banking with immediate global access to your bank accounts using a secure internet connection.
Paying bills, transferring funds and just plain monitoring your account are all possible with minimal stress whether you are traveling, holidaying or working anywhere in the world.

This older tutorial (bad handwriting and resolution) starts from a basic society looking to do more than barter and incrementally builds to a modern society with fraction reserve banking.
Through this process, you will hopefully gain a deep understanding of how money and banking works in our modern world.
