future of money and how new technologies such as Google Wallet and ClearXChange may do away with coins and paper money

CreditDonkey, a credit card review and news website, today announced the launch of a new infographic marking the milestones of money as it has evolved to keep pace with the progress of humankind from 1200 BC all the way up to present day.

From bartering to shells, to paper money and then today’s preferred plastic, the visual explains why the changes to our monetary systems have been made over the millenniums. It also includes fun factoids about the money, like “sunny days have people tipping more than dreary days do”.

The history-filled infographic makes it easy for people to follow their ancestors through time, giving them a glance into a very important aspect of their way of life.

"It’s amazing to see where we come from and try to imagine life in bygone eras," said Charles Tran, founder of CreditDonkey. “What really intrigues me is thinking about the future of money and how new technologies such as Google Wallet and ClearXChange may do away with coins and paper money altogether.”

The infographic provides many with their first glance at the technologically powered monetary options of “the future”—Google Wallet and ClearXChange. These newest developments in the currency evolution, both of which are launching this summer, allow consumers to pay for goods through the use of their smartphones.
