And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

Revelation 6:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and **** followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

I have been saying this is the next logical step. Elimination of cash and other payment forms, and swap in electronic payments.

It will eliminate drug dealers, the underground economy that cost the feds billions of dollars in taxes each year, and insure tracking of goods and services.

What's not to like? <sarc>
 
"We are just one small step away from paying with our bodily features alone."

Followed shortly thereafter with regulations governing feature reconstruction, which will be followed by an underground black market in feature reconstructions.

And a thriving barter community.
 
Cash will not die here in the US. It's gonna get real sick though.

cash will be gone the way of the dodo bird. Why don't you think the gooberment will do cash just like they did gold, and outlaw the ownership of it. All they have to do is say you have until 12pm on XX-XX-XXXX date to turn the cash in and receive credit in your electronic account, or any government note will have no value. Just like confederate money in the late 1860's. All it will be worth is wiping you hiney

That's all it's worth now, except for people's trust in it. It's a really short step now from worthless fiat currency to electronic blips, because most of U.S. currency is already nothing but electronic blips.

Cash ain't goin' nowhere in this country. There are too many retail cash businesses out there.
 
Phooey! You think the local clerk knows what a $5 gold piece is worth?
Those engaged in black market trade are keenly interested in knowing and understanding the value of whatever "currency" people are trading in. Unlike running down to the corner Majik Market for a six pack of sody-pop, black market traders want to maximize their value received due to the excessive risks being undertaken in criminal trade.
