We are headed to a cashless society.

(I prefer to pay with cash in general.)

In China, you pay for many things by phone. No cards.

Phone. Press a button, paid. Some businesses in China
Only accept phone payment.

I understand the US and China are different, but the point is that cashless transactions are increasing in Europe and Asia and the US and will be 100% in the not so distant future.
