Gee, I hope so, but who really knows. Some heavy hitters are getting ready to roll out a new type of payment/credit system that looks to challenge the banking industry, PayPal and others. Revolution Money, supposedly would offer significant benefits to consumers and merchants, and also be more secure.
The idea combines the concepts of a credit card and a stored value card. Supposedly it sucks the life out of fee generation for transferring money and thus saves everyone money by slashing the fee structure.
The Revolution Card will also be anonymous and be based on a PIN system. Basically there are no names or account numbers on the cards. I'm intrigued by what I'm reading about this and am very interested in learning more.
