Cash plays an important role in the proper functioning of the economy. Euro banknotes and coins are the only legal tender in the euro area and the only form of public money that is directly accessible to all citizens; thereby a key factor for social inclusion of the most vulnerable groups, with limited access to new technologies. In addition, cash allows us to have a means of payment in case of unavailability of electronic payment systems.
