10 Items You Should Have In Preparation Of A Cashless Society

The World Of Currency IS Changing

The world is already heading towards a cashless society. China is already a digital currency society. During this pandemic, we experienced the effects of a coin shortage. Grocery stores did not have coins, there was a big emphasis on “card only” transactions. Cashless by Google definition, is characterized by the exchanged funds of cheque, debit or credit card, or electronic methods, rather than the use of cash.

Here are 10 items that will assist and accommodate your transition into cashless transaction:

  1. Debit Card, most widely used today, by Google definition, a debit card, is a card allowing the holder to transfer money electronically from their bank account when making a purchase.

A debit card can be obtained with a checking account from a financial institution such as a bank or from a fintech company such as Stash or Cash App. Accounts with the bank or fintech company source the funds of the holder, allowing the holder to transfer money electronically from their accounts when making a purchase.

2. Credit Card, also most widely used today, by Google definition, a credit is a small plastic card issued by a bank, business, etc., allowing the holder to purchase goods or services on credit.

A credit card is based on credit worthiness. Approval of a credit card can be where you are given credit by the issuing credit card company or where you fund the credit card limit with your funds. This type of credit is called a secured credit card and is usually given to those whose credit is not that good and need to rebuild their credit.

3. Zelle

What Is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a form of buy, sell, payment and exchange. It is not money. However, it can be used like money. In the United States it is not a currency. The United States government controls what is currency in the United States. Bitcoin is property. You can own it, you can buy it, you can sell it, you can use it to exchange for goods and services, you can build a hedge against the U.S. dollar with it. However, it is not money. It is not apart of the currency issued by the United States government. You don’t have an actual coin in hand to own, buy, sell, use, or exchange Bitcoin it is used digitally.

9. NFT

NFT (Non Fungible Token) is a special cryptoasset in which each token in unique. It is different than Bitcoin and dollars. Bitcoin and dollar bills are worth the exactly the same amount. NFT can be used to authenticate ownership of digital assets (e.g. digital works.)

10. Smartphone

Yes, a smartphone.

This is how most of China’s economy operates on a daily basis. With a scan of their phone a payment is made. Where is the money coming from? An app on their phone or a digital wallet. Instead of wallets, they carry smartphones. In the U.S. you can easily check out at some stores with your smartphone. This is where the world is heading. No physical in hand money needed.

Bitcoin is a type of digital currency in which a record of transactions is maintained and new units of currency are generated by the computational solution of mathematical problems, and which operates independently of a central bank. (Google)

Bitcoin was created by a person. The name most associated with the person who created it is Satoshi Nakamoto. There is only a limited amount of Bitcoin available worldwide. Once that limit is reached no more exists.

It can be used like money. It is deregulated. It is not regulated by banks or the government. It is digital. It is also known as Cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrency is “a digital currency in which transactions are verified and records maintained by a decentralized system using cryptography, rather than by a centralized authority.” (Google)

Bitcoin can be bought with U.S. Dollars or whatever your currency is in your country and it can be used to buy, exchange and pay for things that you would buy with regular fiat money. You can also sell Bitcoin for U.S. dollars. It is legit. There are even ATM’s for it. In the U.S., you do have to report your buys and sells (your transactions) to the IRS.

Bitcoin is an investment and is like a hedge against the U.S. Dollar. It can be comparable to gold. In the U.S., if the U.S. dollar fails, then Bitcoin and other hard assets like gold come into play and hedge against it. You would be able to still buy, sell, exchange, make payments because of the value, accessibility, and ability of Bitcoin. People are building their portfolios and investing in it and obtaining it now. Companies and businesses are implementing it in their form of payment options, where the consumer can pay with/in Bitcoin. PayPal most recently, implemented the ability of its users to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin. National retailers are now accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment. Games offer rewards in Bitcoin and Lolli offers rewards when using their service when you shop at top stores.

My First Week Intently Investing In The Stock Market

My First Week Intently Investing In The Stock Market

My first week intently investing in the stock market:

I had returns on both investments the second day of investing, I did not sell.

One of my investments dropped a few cents “below” what I had invested in it.

I ended this week: Actively trading. I sold both investments. One had a return/profit. I ended with more than I initially invested.

I learned more about the stock market, how to read stock charts, and how to actively trade for income.

It’s Official, I’m A Stock Investor.
