CASH is accelerating down the path to extinction as new technologies threaten to mark the end of loose change within a decade.
Bank and credit union bosses say cash won't be alone, with wallets and credit cards also likely to disappear too.
They told The Advertiser's round table forum that cash and cards will be replaced by computer chips embedded in mobile phones, watches or other portable devices.

Whats ridiculous is that they dont even know where they want to implant the device....watches? cell phones?
Can you imagine anything more ridiculous? What if you lose your watch and cellphone? Do you lose that as well....
What if someone takes your chip...They won't ask for I.D. so someone can get away with money crimes far easier....
