Euro banknotes are an anchor of stability and confidence, both in everyday life as well as in many crises. The demand for cash is still growing and banknotes and coins are very popular means of payment at the point of sale in Germany.

In a highly volatile and fast changing world, as we face it today, it might not be enough to analyse current conditions and developments – we also have to think about the most dominating impact factors shaping the future path of cash. One of these factors, a megatrend that has already changed and surely will change our daily life is digitalisation. It has an impact not only in form of technical innovations, but also direct or indirect impact on everyday objects like cash and in the behaviour of citizens. Using the scenario technique, we imagine how the future cash cycle might look like in 15 or 20 years: What kind of properties does cash need to be attractive for the users and what can we do in the present time to achieve this goal?
