Is cash dead? Why your wallet needs an upgrade!

Is cash dead? Why your wallet needs an upgrade!

The days of bulky wallets overflowing with bills are numbered. The shift to a cashless society is well and truly underway. But what does this mean for you and your wallet? Read on to explore more...



According to an article from The Guardian, the introduction of cashless/contactless payment options has fueled the shift away from traditional cash transactions. With the rise of digital wallets and contactless cards, consumers are opting for the speed and simplicity of tapping to pay over fumbling through notes and coins. 

In Sweden, as reported by Business Insider, the nation has declared war on cash, with cashless transactions accounting for the majority of payments. This trend reflects a global movement towards a cashless future.


The allure of credit cards lies in their convenience and versatility. With a simple swipe or tap, consumers can make purchases both online and in-store, without the hassle of carrying physical currency. Moreover, credit cards offer added benefits such as rewards programs and purchase protection, further incentivising their use.



Despite the seemingly obvious benefits of a cashless society, there are very real concerns to consider: 

  • Privacy issues and data security vulnerabilities. As a population we already have handed over vast amounts of personal data to the tech giants, do we want to feed them more data and how can we be sure that the use of our data will remain ethical?
  • Accessibility. The elderly, marginalised communities and young children to name a few will be left out by this movement.
