Shouldn't cred chips see greater use by corporate citizens? Making it a cashless economy of sorts? One of these would be the ability to pay for Taxis,sky foxes and levs by cred chips. Quick kleens as well. Door entrance fees might be paid via cred chip too. Salaries may be picked up directly from terminals by slotting cred chips into them.Just a thought. Please feel free to point out flaws in my idea. Thanks.
Thematically speaking, I would expect that corporations would practically demand that their customers and employees use cred chips. Credit is traceable and taxable. Credit is control. A corpie who suddenly starts using a lot of cash would be a corpie asking to be audited or interrogated.
People operating outside of the sphere or corporate control would prefer cash. It is anonymous. It is not taxable (until it gets deposited into the bank).
