I very rarely use cash to pay for things. I haven't for 30 years.
I was all in when they came out with a debit card.
I cancelled my credit cards ( a smallish mistake) and never looked back.  I still carry  some cash on me and a couple of Bennies in the wallet just in case.

In everyday life a debit card works great. For larger purchases, it can be a problem.
Try buying a new truck with a debit card and watch them freek out.
That was comical, and a pain in the arse all at the same time.

Haven't had bills or change on me regularly for a couple years now, even have online exchange options for small crap like paying my chunk of what used to be the office coffee fund.  In fact the only time I tend to carry currency is when I'm in some developing country like Cuba, Dominican Republic or the US.

Yes, but until hookers, drug dealers and bookies take your card; many people will need cash. Like a sizeable percentage of people enjoy at least one of those. Some gamble on their drug dealer with a hooker.
