It won't disappear bud, it'll be locked up behind withdrawal limits for the common folk just like has happened countless times overseas. Of course those that are important won't have to face such limits. By locking it up that way, it'll remain in system but restricted to where they want it to be spent. No bullion transactions for you. No cash purchases for you. I often keep my accounts empty. Wages go in, bills get paid, rest is withdrawn same day.
