This is the beginning of the end of cash as we know it today. It will be a slow but sure road to cash’s oblivion.  Nearly two thirds of Australians have smartphones.  Four other countries have an even higher percentage of smartphone take-up than Australia.  These growing and dynamic smartphone penetrations, together with the launch today of MasterPass, which is a virtual wallet, are significant precursors to a cashless society.
