The end of cash

Just this morning my husband predicted that in his lifetime, cash would disappear. Everything will be credit cards or digital payments. Got into work and saw this story that cash will no longer be accepted at a University of Washington cafe. The university cited cash theft concerns, but if you've flown lately, you know that some airlines no longer accept cash for drinks or food sold on board. Credit or debit cards only.

Will you miss carrying cash and coins?
