(Natural News) The next step towards an eventual cashless society is “reverse ATMs,” which reports explain exchange cash for debit cards that customers can then use to shop.
Accelerated thanks to the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “pandemic,” which trained the public into believing that cash is “dirty” and might “infect” them, reverse ATMs are starting to appear at amusement parks, sports stadiums, casinos, and other heavy use facilities that would rather not deal with paper and coins anymore.
Some restaurants, including Slutty Vegan and Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, both located in New York City, are also installing reverse ATMs to avoid the “dirtiness” of cash.
Since legal tender still technically has to be accepted, reverse ATMs exist in a legal gray area. Some states and cities are banning local businesses from refusing to accept cash, and for now reverse ATMs are something of a loophole to those rules.

As it turns out, there are still millions of Americans who have chosen not have a bank account or any type of credit or debit card. Since they have a right to shop and participate in society without such things, reverse ATMs help fill the void for them, too.
“Cash digitalization,” as they are calling the scheme, aims to eventually replace all paper and coin cash with digital payment schemes.
I guess we’ll see how it goes. I’m anticipating it won’t.
