The no cash revolution is here to stay and it’s roaring faster than ever. With the success of Venmo in the peer-to-peer lending (that means between friends), many bigger banks are scrambling to get in the action.
Launching later this year, Zelle, powered by some of the biggest banks hopes to complete as best as they can with Venmo in this digital wallet space. I’m super interested to see how Zelle functions and how it will compete since I have a bank account with one of these bigger banks.
It all brings up an interesting question, though, “Do we still need cash?” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve needed to have at least some cash on me and I just don’t. Those awkward moments when I’m leaving a parking garage and having to rummage through my entire car just to find enough money.
If the no cash revolution is here to stay we need to make sure we are being very careful with how we use our digital wallets.
