Instead of throwing new faces on US currency they need to bring it to modern security standards. Polymer medium, holographic features, raised inks, braille indents, transparent regions, metallic regions, etc. Fuck the useless 'MUH FACE CHANGE' on currency, the current ones are fine and always will be. Letting the currency get out of date with security standards just means its easier to push for paper currency to be removed all-together.

If people just buy into it you dont need to give a reason.

You wouldn't belive the faces of sweds kiwis and yes Amis to when they come to germany and cant just pay with their fucking cards everywhere at any time.

plot twist. The push to remove "us" currency and to make it digital...

Most of that "reserve currency" (that is physical... not digital) that other countries own is actually counterfeit and no one is willing to admit or investigate it.

However, it would be scanned and be given a "low value of trust" and 1B turns into 1/3B and everyone agrees and moves on (knowing most of it is fake and they all won in the end).
