Cash is also the currency of crime. Bank robberies, drug dealers, bribes all use currency. So many merchants have switched to simply having a I Pad and you have a smart phone and a new App called Card Case. Essentially a digital wallet for you. You can register and create a virtual tab right on your phone of your favorite merchants. Now you don’t even need a wallet or a credit card you don’t even have to pull out your phone.
Instead, your photo pops up on the merchants I Pad they type in the transaction amount and the money is deducted from the bank account of your choosing. If you need to pay for something remotely say for that little girl’s cookies; there is a company that invented ”Square” a gizmo that clips into the top of your phone where you can swipe any card and plus or minus transactions right into your I Pad or phone. Hey no more coin belt on the Ice Cream Man. Wow he is gone too.
