The US is behind many other rich and developing countries in moving to a cashless economy. You can barely operate in China now unless you have a WeChat account.

 

There are debit cards that you can dose up with crypto currencies and use them to pay via EFTPOS (or what ever your POS systems are called). Doing this will protect privacy in that you're not leaving a rich data trail wherever you purchase things.

Precioius metals are kang!

Starbucks is always the dissappoint. But I drink my coffee black. That's it. Dark roast preferred. French press life.. Got an Armenian market that does a blend for me, grinds it according to brewing method. So good... They take cash and beads... Some of you might get that joke..

Next step is to shut down merchant accounts for retailers dealing in crypto. Watch it happen.

Had a Venti Flat White this morning. Can confirm 9/10 SB tastes like shit. Needed more shots, tasted weak and they broke the milk by pouring too quick 👎🏻

It says right there on the money "THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER FOR ALL DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE".

 

I can understand not wanting to handle it as an employer, but I resent the practice of not accepting cash enough that it is a dealbreaker for me.

 

Another way to transfer money from the consumer to the financial industry, right past the folks you are trying to buy something from.

Fuck starbucks for sure, but in some places that might be as good as it gets so I'll hit one if I'm traveling. I'm more annoyed by all the places here in NYC that only accept cash. I'm a little obsessed with tracking/categorizing every penny I spend and it fucks up my game.

 

On a side note I used bitcoin for an overstock transaction today for the first time to buy a small table. They proceeded to email me a discrete cash receipt for this once the transaction made it into a block or two. I can in turn use the receipt from  money with unknown origins for even more tax cheating savings. Guess who's going to furnish most of my next house.

Everyday we move a step closer towards The Beast. 

 

You sure they all don't accept cash or is that because it's a military one?  Seem to recall some state or chain of stores wanted to go cashless but people complained and blocked that, think part of the argument was around it limiting access for poorer people but could be wrong there.  

I use cash as much as humanly possible. No paper trail, no credit card company tracking what I buy when/where and such.

Also Starbucks= expensive poop coffee.

Some of the places I work have their own starbucks inside of it. I'll usually go to them if it's a bitch to get back into a site if you leave. I drink iced black coffee (not cold brew, fuck that thick shit) it always tastes burnt to me, which is fucking incredible.

 

edit: I rarely have cash for anything. If a place didnt take cash though I wouldn't fuck with it. That's a weird move.

^ fuck all that. CASH only 

if the US/Canada moves the same way as other countries your choices will be severely limited by sticking to cash. 

 

Although the US is unique for a couple of reasons, it’s the largest economy and there is a strong culture of suspicion against control and regulation (often for very good reason). In terms of efficiency, it really suits business interests to go cashless and the US market is a fan of efficiency. 

 

@misteravenI too am very interested to see how things move with crypto and neither am I a fan of most banks. My novice gut feeling is that they won’t be able to stop a two-tiered economy but that nefarious states will take advantage of that for their own purposes.

Also, nobody has brought this up but most  hard core Starbucks fans have an iphone app that they can use to place an order, then pay without ever going to the register. You send in the order on the walk there and boom, it's ready for you with the name spelled right.

Between mindset and where I live (not to mention economic situation), I find myself buying much less, especially frivolous purchases like coffee or food on the go. Wife buys Starbucks every once in a while, but far from the 1 - 3 times a day like when we were in nyc. 

 

Personally I much rather drink the iced lattes I make at home. Also, I consider my purchases much more than I used to.
