Physical money does not exist:
Nowadays, money is not a tangible thing, it is more of a concept and it is much more practical than the money we used to use back in 2022.
Clearly, in this day and age, everyone has a smart phone, and the fact that you can always carry your money with you with the peace of mind that it is impossible for it to be stolen or that you might have forgotten your wallet at home is a real plus.
Another of the benefits of “virtual” money is that you can pay with a simple button from your phone, tablet or computer and you can even make a shared account with your friends or family for those meals where you pay the bill individually, although I think I remember that in those days there was already an application similar to this last one I have mentioned.
Coins that once seemed so normal to see are now a rarity. All good collectors wish to have some of these seemingly worthless little metal circles for which many would pay thousands of euros.
First came coins and banknotes, then credit cards. Later we paid with these two together with our mobile phones and now everything is done with electronic devices. Times change, and so do our ways of paying.
In conclusion, money today is a totally different thing than it was 10 years ago and I personally prefer it how it is now.
