Highest charges are for people who withdraw more money than they actually have in their account. You can't even do that with BTC. And paying extra  charges when withdrawing money from a bank which isn't your bank isn't new, you just need to be smart. I'm in Europe right now in a country where I will never withdraw any cash because that would call for a high charge, so I'll just wait till I'm moving away. Banks aren't so bad, but you have to be organized.

If you're looking for a trading/lending place, better avoid Poloniex, as it socializes losses. Learn more about it on this topic.

If you want to trade, I recommend you use Bitfinex.

This is true. IMO the majority of the ATM related fees have something to do with accessing money that you do not have. People are stupid and greedy and will agree to pay crazy fees so they can spend money they do not have yet

This is not what is reflected in ATM fees. You are referring to overall banking costs. The article in the OP is discussing only the direct cost associated with using an ATM. Most of these fees are fees that you will pay for using another bank's ATM. For example if you want to use your ATM card that is issued by bank "A" at bank "B"'s ATM then bank "B" will likely charge a fee because you are using their ATM and needs to take on some level of risk for disbursing cash on another bank's account. Bank "A" will also charge a fee because of the added expense to use the other bank's ATM network.

The best way to avoid fees while using an ATM is to only use the same brand ATM that you have a bank account at (and that issued your ATM/debit card)

A customer is slapped with fees when they use an ATM that's not owned by their bank, and those fees jumped 5% in the past year, according to Bankrate.

Don't use ATMs that are not owned by your bank then, and don't spend money you don't have by going into your overdraft. Pretty much most ATMs in the UK are free anyway, and it's rare that you'll be charged but they state that they charge you before you even put your card in so if I come across one I'll just find another.

Well apparently people are lazy enough to not do this.

The only other ATM fee that I have ever seen is a statement fee (to print a partial statement of recent activity) although I cannot imagine why anyone would ever want this. As a result I would conclude that people do this billions of times per year in the US.

Really? are you in the U.S.? Here you pay at any ATM except the ones your bank owns. It can be as high as $8 per transaction. What a ripoff for sending a few lines of text over the internet.

Good news for us.
Bad news for those who use debit/cc.

Do you want to say that you could live on bitcoin only in these days ? Smiley
i can't say that. not in Europe.
lets say a btc loadable card, still you are charged a fee for exchange.
Banks still rules and we need to admit that.
you know why?
because people believe banks.
mortgages, debts, credits.. people like that.
We need to explain the world that p2p can do same, even better.
We need more startup boost companies to fasten up a progress.
i would say that 80% people in the world never heard what is cryptology, or heard but didnt understand a thing.
It is no matter if bank fees will grow up.
they would believe banks, all the time. complain about that, but do that.. all the time..
They grew up with banks, adoption.
Smiley my english is terrible

You must be from Europe. Most of the world has some pretty insane ATM fees. I am not sure why there is no such thing in most of the EU but that is the exception not the rule.

Yeah I am from EU. Never paid any atm fee, and I used already 5 banks in 3 countries. But, if I recall correctly, there indeed used to be some fees about 5-10 years ago, which were pretty annoying.
