As the virus can survive on banknotes and coins which are passed around continuously do you think that TPTB will use this to force us all to use cards/contactless? This will make it easier for us all to be tracked even more than we already are at present.

What say you ATS?

No.
Cash is expensive to produce, transport and maintain.
Cards on the other hand make somebody money every time they are used.

They will finally eliminate cash under the guise of ending crime like child trafficking and drug sales.

There's a few African nations that have basically gone to a cashless system. Even buying tea from some dude walking the streets you just plug money into his account and meet up with him sometime during the day.

China has invested a lot into it as well. I'm guessing they were using African nations as a testing ground. So far it has actually been working well. Cell phones are huge in Africa it would have been the perfect place for a pilot project.

I don't think you need a virus to see where the use of actual money is going. I havem't used money in a long time. Everything is on the card. Beisdes going out for drinks with friends. I won't take my bank card out on the drink with me. Too much risk of me losing it.

I’m just the opposite cash is king.

I don’t want the police or anyone else knowing exactly where I’ve been all day every day for the last 10 years .

People complain about the NSA listening to our phone calls .

But they freely turn over where they are where they came from where they’re going next and how much you spend .

if you plan on going off the grid. Chances are they already know where you’re going from that information .


I’ve got a credit card for emergencies. But so far I haven’t had one .


Edit;

Disable the GPS in your car too .

As well as the number pads on those machines. Not all cards tap to pay, especially when the dollar amounts are higher

People will download pictures for their local unlicensed tattoo artist to copy. I’m thinking of a Bernie barcode so he knows what it is like to have involuntary funding of unapproved causes.

Yep, cash only for me, my business what I do, and when. They buy and sell the data we give them..so they get next to nothing from me.
