The full emergence of a cashless society has been a approach long in the making and taking place on many fronts. We are at this time witnessing an variety of unique technology that is meant to make cash appear like an obsolete, awkward way to transact business. Why not pay by way of identity tech such as vein scanners, facial recognition, voiceprints, iris scans – even tears?
Purchases will just be so much safer and more effortless with your new Zwipe biometric credit card, they tell us.
At the same time, we are witnessing legal guidelines and internal banking plans that make it – or will make it – almost impossible to make use of cash unless you prefer to be investigated for money laundering or links to terrorism.
