Banks are not going to disappear simply because of Bitcoin and any "revolution" will require 20-30 years to happen. I would argue that protocols like XRP are not an anomaly. They are a reflection of the trade-off between centralization and existing infrastructure. Their perspective is that blockchain is a technology first and foremost and not a wide cloud network like Facebook.
