Dr. Tobias Trütsch in the SRF Einstein program on the money of the future

Bitcoin, Twint or e-francs: what is the money of the future? The Swiss are increasingly paying electronically. Apps like Twint have replaced the need to reach for a wallet. Bitcoins claim to function like electronic cash. Now the central banks are reacting: e-euros are being developed and an e-franc is being considered.

On the way to a cashless society cash is on the retreat. The coronavirus pandemic has intensified the trend towards cashless shopping. Many people are now even paying for chewing gum at the kiosk or vegetables at the market by card or app. Is Switzerland therefore on the way to becoming a cashless society? And what does it mean if notes and coins are increasingly disappearing?
