    Crypto-currencies do not use credit cards. The only information the magnetic strip would have is the encrypted data that the cloud can use to verify the funds available and an encrypted pin to access it.

    If they are worth more than a penny, then why would anyone return them ?



    If the government could produce them for less than a penny then they might even turn a profit.

    Hey - I'm not stupid.

    I'm hoarding pennies too - I must have like $10.00 worth. in 200 yeras long after I'm dead they'll be worth 3x's as much - more if they do axe the penny completely.

    I agree with those that think we should keep them and just make them out of a cheaper material... it makes no sense for them to worth less then the materials they are made out of.

    If things keep going as they are, coined currency of any kind will disappear. It just won't make economical sense because of the cost of metals. But I think that currency as a whole needs to be done away with. The technology exist to live without hard cash currency.
