    Locally the retailers don’t want coins as it costs money to deposit coins.

    It will be under the guise of contact tracing. You know, to keep us safe.

    The world makes more sense once you accept they never managed to put a man on the moon. Then you can say, well they couldn’t get a man on the moon so no wonder they can’t do this or that. :)

    it makes sense,
    no need to queue to top up your train card, just use a CC
    no need to queue at the ATM, just tap with your CC
    it does not matter, Google is already tracking you on your phone
    Google have your email, gmail

    Tracked if using the card, not if using cash. With cash I can buy a burger and no one knows it.

    Also consider 'social distancing' as a precursor to help implement facial recognition. The distance needed by current tech to scan faces more accurately.
