Sweden’s cashless society
Sweden is edging closer to a “cashless society” where barely anyone below the age of 40 carries cash on a routine basis, said iZettle chief executive Jacob de Geer, who said that the public were happy to trust their card details to homeless people because they trusted the credit card chop system.

Ultimately everyone has to do what they feel is right, giving my bank information out to be written down just seems like an unnecessary risk to me.
Much easier to keep cash on hand for emergencies.

What about children and teenagers? Are they supposed to have card readers every time their birthdays come around or a relative visits?
It's a ridiculous idea to abandon cash!!
