I understand Sweden is trying to completely eliminate cash by about 2022.

How do I replace that tasteful old expression about wanting to spend a penny when I have a need to urinate.
Desperate for a bitcoin?

I’m old school always pay cash always have cash on me even if I know i probably won’t need to spend but I can see the advantages of cashless, just watched footage of a corner shop robbery cash taken from the till.
In a cashless world this type of crime would be a thing of the past, not going to happen in my lifetime but it will come.
Talk to a police officer and you will learn that large numbers of the force are employed  on Digital/Ciber crime and that the criminals are winning.

You know pretty quickly when your pocket has been picked for a few notes but you can be unaware for a long time that someone has dipped into your bank account for a large amount.

Not me! I dont have a large amount to pinch....

Even the beggars in Sweden have tap to pay banking when getting "Donations"

Me and the Mrs went to Stockholm and took the normal currency, practically everywhere was cashless. Horrible since our banks rip us off if you use a card abroad. I'm not even going to get on to the cost of a beer there ...
