Seems that all of these countries are talk about their future digitized currency. That’s all great but we’re still holding onto Fiat currencies from several countries.. when are they planning on having us send these paper notes to them ?
I think any country that terminates a currency has to give you a couple of years to cash out. Most countries will probably just cut back on printed currency, and let attrition happen naturally
rvalready when do you think the RV will happen?
I think it will happen when everyone thinks it is safe to do so. I could hope for next week, but we will have to see.
Over the years, Ive learned to sometimes take a contrarian point of view… IF they(whomevertheyare) say, it gonna take more time, then it may just as easily happen the next morning. Deception and Mis-information seems to be popular. The fact that they are even mentioning THEN thats a good sign to me, IF this subject was a non issue, it wouldn’t even be in a discussion. IMHO.
“They” ptb, know exactly what the game plan is, it is just way way way above our pay grade of needing to know, we are all along for the ride not knowing When the driver desides to stop at our final destination. Enjoy the ride,
so now they have a dollar and a euro processor hmmmm
