What do you think - are you prepared to live a life with no paper money?! No coins?!

As we all know, in the last ten years (especially during the pandemic), electronic transfer of money has come a long way. Apple Pay, Cash App, PayPal and Venmo went from "what the heck is that?" to "let me Venmo you."  Yes, Venmo was used as verb in that sentence. So, how close are we to being a cashless society and who is prepared for it?

Well, Casino Canada did some research to see which state in the U.S. is most prepared to go cashless and Texas came in at number one.  How did the figure this out? They analyzed payment app search volumes in proportion to the population of each state.
