Only 8% of the world’s currency is actual physical money.
That’s right – it’s a digital world we live in. Only 8% of all the “money” around the world is actual physical cash. The rest is digital money that exists only on computers. Think about how often we buy or sell things online, or transfer money from one account to another with a simple phone call.
The money goes from one place to another, yet we never actually see or touch it. This digital existence of currency makes up the vast majority of all cash around the world today.
