Prophecy Sign: The future cashless society
In order to have a digital economy where everything is controlled by the flash of a hand or the scan of a forehead, real hard currency needs to be eliminated. The calls for the elimination of cash are being heard around the globe as more and more sources call for a new economic order where digital money is king, (playing right into the hands of a future global dictator). \
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
Bring On the Cashless Future
Cash had a pretty good run for 4,000 years or so. These days, though, notes and coins increasingly seem declassee: They're dirty and dangerous, unwieldy and expensive, antiquated and so very analog. Sensing this dissatisfaction, entrepreneurs have introduced hundreds of digital currencies in the past few years, of which bitcoin is only the most famous. Now governments want in: The People's Bank of China says it intends to issue a digital currency of its own. Central banks in Ecuador, the Philippines, the U.K. and Canada are mulling similar ideas. At least one company has sprung up to help them along. Much depends on the details, of course. But this is a welcome trend. In theory, digital legal tender could combine the inventiveness of private virtual currencies with the stability of a government mint. Most obviously, such a system would make moving money easier. Properly designed, a digital fiat currency could move seamlessly across otherwise incompatible payment networks, making transactions faster and cheaper. It would be of particular use to the poor, who could pay bills or accept payments online without need of a bank account, or make remittances without getting gouged.
