    No, I feel cash is necessary in the economy. Not only are there many occupations that thrive off of it, the reliability on technology can be dangerous.

    While in theory it could be more efficient, I don’t think so as it is risky to rely on a completely cashless system, and I think it has the potential to become dangerous.
