• It is coming very soon. The chips are already available. I have read where one company has adopted them as security passes, for pay receipts and more. It is placed in the fleshy area between the thumb and the index finger. It could and can be considered the "mark of the beast" written about in the book of Revelation in the Bible. This chip can be very dangerous because it can hold all kinds of information about you that can be accessed with a transponder. In Canada they use bank issued cards to use anywhere in Canada instead of cash. These cards are not credit cards but similar to a debit card.

      The cards were more what I had in mind

      The Veri-Chip, as it was originally called, will most likely become the Mark of the Beast and is exactly why I'm against society going too far towards becoming cashless.
    • Hulk70166
      I agree. Chips with all our info on them can be pirated. We would become slaves to whoever owns the information. Think Blackmail.
    • Linda Joy
      They'd be so disappointed when they get mine! I went to all that trouble for that tiny amount?! But it all adds up when they scam a bunch of people.
  • Hmm! How do you like to barter?
    • Linda Joy
      I share what I have. Then the next thing I know someone brings me a box of food!
  • There never will be a totally "cashless" society: it's just not possible. Would you be happy to pay a transaction fee for buying a 2 bucks ice cream? Didn't think so. Cashless works out in big transactions - but not small ones.
    • mushroom
      Cashiers in the supermarket used to chuckle at people charging a 79-cent item; now they look askance at cash.
    • Linda Joy
      I've NEVER bought a $2 ice cream! I get ice cream with my regular monthly trip to the grocery.
  • Seeing as how EVERYTHING is getting hacked now.....I'd rather stick to cash. I like keeping my money hidden the walls because I don't trust the banks.
    • Linda Joy
      I 'hide' it by paying my rent ahead. No one will EVER find it THERE!
  • Remember the Rothschild's own the currency in all but three countries in the world, including the USA. Their agenda is to have a one world currency. From what I have read this is in the very near future of occurring. They will simply cancel all the currencies and issue electronic currency. You will lose whatever you have in banks. What is in your pocket will be worthless.
    • Army Veteran
      No one will lose what they have in the bank. Their accounts are already in the form of electronic currency.
  • No That's when I go off grid. Local autonomy and cooperation is an essential foundation of sovereignty
  • I'm only comfortable going strapless, when my tan-lines are nearly completely blended in.
  • not really since ive already gone thru that and didnt like it
  • No, because you are then completely controlled and the government will know everything that goes in and out of your account. Cash gives us freedom to make money without the government snooping. This is why people should get use to cash again. The chip is the ultimate goal, I've read this on a number of business sites, they hoped that 9/11 would bring it in, we already have the chip in our hand when holding a card, it's only a short step further before it's inside us. RFID chips give off RF radiation, and ALL RF radiation is classified as a 2B carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), and the World Health Organisation (WHO), the most recent study carried out in 2018 showed that it was a definite link to cancer, it was the largest of it's kind over a two year period, and yet they have hidden the findings. It was Alfred Russell Wallace who suggested a society where cash is valid in of itself without gold or silver as it's backing. Cash is an IOU, a promissory note, this is what people use to give the man who looked after their Gold for them, what that man found out is that people rarely came back for their Gold, and instead would swap the IOU's. This is how cash was created. Now the Banks control the monetary supply depending on how much they print, and this money is created out of nothing, if we all turned up at the bank tomorrow to collect our money or what should of been gold, they wouldn't be able to provide it. The system is rigged we are controlled by numbers, that's what controls the economy and that is what controls the labour. Whoever you vote in will either spend money and put future generations into more debt, or will tighten the purse strings, however no matter what the debt is always greater and so there is no way to work it off. Whenever you place $100 in your bank, the bank uses $90 dollars to loan and make interest on. The founding fathers of the USA were completely against this, but the US went bankrupt and had no choice to become beholden to the federal reserve.
    • Archie Bunker
      While I don't agree with everything you've said, I definitely agree with the idea that cash is better. I don't keep a lot of money in the banks because I don't won't to be wiped out because of a computer crash. I also believe that we should go back to the gold standard (that's a whole other discussion) and the days when you could walk into a bank and hand them gold and get cash in return.
    • mushroom
      Imagine if trying to get a gold brick from an ATM was like watching that bag get stuck in the vending machine.
    • Linda Joy
      Good one, mushroom! haha Creamcrackered, do you really think the government can't track your cash?
    • Archie Bunker
      Not if it's stored in the walls, they can't !!
    • Creamcrackered
      I'm with you Archie money back with gold and silver. That was Alfred Russel Wallace's' idea to use cash in and of itself.
    • Army Veteran
      The fact that America is no longer on the gold and silver standard is a violation of the Constitution. "No State shall...make anything but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts." - Article 1 Section 10. The currency now being used is "fiat" currency - meaning there is nothing of value to support it - it's legal counterfeiting and will play a large part in this country's demise when all debts are called in. The problem is the Federal Reserve. It was started by Zionist ("Jewish") bankers in a scheme to control the world's economy (read "The Creature From Jekyll Island"). The "Fed" was signed into law by Woodrow Wilson, a weak-minded president who was manipulated by the same Zionists into getting America involved in WW1 (another interesting saga in history).
  • I would say no since the fact is not eveyone uses a credit or debit card. Though it is easier to get a debit card than a credit card.
    • Linda Joy
      I get paid on a debit card, but I get cask back on occasion if I need it.
  • of course. The trend is to use technology to pay. Probably you have used your cell phone to pay, or the many systems in internet to handle transactions etc.
    • Linda Joy
      Yes, I have!
  • I pay mostly by credit card.
    • Linda Joy
      I haven't used a credit card since the '90's.
  • nope i love the feel of money and like to see it,,i pay cash,,hate cashless,,poor kids if they never get pocket money
    • Linda Joy
      They'll transition. We all do eventually.
  • I'd be concerned about it. It means our entire economy would be numbers on computers. Manipulate those numbers and you can manipulate our money. The one advantage of cash is that it is hard to argue with. Its either there or it isn't. You can't make it disappear with a few keystrokes.
    • Linda Joy
      I've been doing card transactions since the 80's and usually when I lose money its my fault.
  • No I prefer to pay with cash.
  • No problem for me.
  • Absolutely, I would. But...too many people in the U.S. would not. The U.S. is not going cashless any time soon. Too much commerce (both legal and illegal) depend upon it, including (personally) among our Congressmen in Washington D.C. itself, and including U.S. foreign relations.
  • In God we trust. All others pay in cash.
  • I like to have option of paying in cash. I am not against cashless but I would like options. I hope that we can use our fingerprint and facial recognition to buy things one day. I do not like to bring card and use mobile phone.
  • Not really. There are lots of cash use occasions still in our society, I think. Church collections, pan handlers asking for a couple bucks, kids selling candy bars for some school event or another, paying the kid who mows the weeds down for you, etc.
    • Linda Joy
      I pay my tithes with a money order which I buy with my debit card. Pan handling is illegal here. You should never give them cash! And the rest you can pay with a check, though I agree I still make some cash transactions which I get as cash back from a purchase with my card.
    • dalcocono
      Checks are only convenient for the check writer. Sometimes they are a big pain to cash for the check receiver. Pan handling is a problem with the large homeless population in my area. I frequently pass them a 5 at the stop sign or stop light. Wherever they are standing with a sign that says "need help". I still put cash in the plate, and give cash to the grand kids to put in also when the attend with us. I could use a check there as easily as cash I suppose.
  • No what happens when the network is down? I waited a couple of hours at a servo in the middle of no where a couple of weeks ago because I had no cash. Due to network error.
  • I usually pay using Apple Pay on my phone.
  • I can't remember the last time I paid cash for anything.
