A bundle of banknotes looks much more impressive than a plastic rectangle. And you won’t be able to block it.

Terminals seem to be everywhere. But this is exactly as long as you do not go to the market for farm cottage cheese and eggs or try to buy fresh cucumbers from a summer resident.

Or you are kicked out of the trolleybus on a frosty winter evening because the terminal suddenly stopped working.
Banknotes don’t care what the internet is. They always work.
If you give Vasya 1,000 rubles a month but suddenly decided to repay the debt of 20,000 to Pete, no one will block your “transactions” in an attempt to protect against fraudsters. But non-standard card transactions can lead to such a step on the part of the bank.
