Gone are the days,the feeling of content was experienced, by merely exchanging goods of requirement. This system was known as ‘barter’, wherein one would ask for a handful of rice in exchange for a handful of wheat. Though, barter being the foundation of all types of exchanges, it did not survive the wrath of those genius minds that committed malpractice by exchanging unstable quantities of goods.
Imagine, getting a handful of rice for an exchange of a cart wheel. Sounds unfair, so did the nomads think. Therefore, they invented ‘The Coin’. Prices were fixed for each commodity as on Amazon and everyone was happy. But there is always one soul in the bunch who wants more. That greedy soul discovered the hassle of carrying heavy coins for exchange. Thus, he decided to replace coins with paper. Hence, we have ‘Notes’. But the quest of a restless human soul never ends and the cycle of making transactions easier yet complex by the day continues. This led to paper being replaced by cards and next on the list is ‘Bitcoin’.
