Cashless economy


I find myself leaving my wallet at home more often. From principle point of view I’m against a cashless economy but convenience of paying and getting paid with smart phone is winning. I use it for:

  1. Charge phone credit
  2. Cinema tickets and the sorts
  3. Ordering food in
  4. Plane tickets
  5. At restaurants
  6. Supermarket
  7. Uber like taxi (don’t even have to take phone out) 
  8. Etc

Just a tap and a QR to pay appears. So convenient. There are three players: tencent (wechat), alibaba (alipay) and apple. I use alipay. My wallet stays safely at home.
