    njet komrade smugss, it's is only fake news when it does not confirm pre-existing perceptions.
    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    But if it's fake news then surely it's not true?

    Why Sweden is close to becoming a cashless economy

    Sweden is the most cashless society on the planet, with barely 1% of the value of all payments made using coins or notes last year. So how did the Nordic nation get so far ahead of the rest of us?

    Warm cinnamon buns are stacked next to mounds of freshly-baked sourdough bread at a neighbourhood coffee shop in Kungsholmen, just west of Stockholm city centre.

    Amongst the other typically Scandinavian touches - minimalist white tiles and exposed filament light bulbs - is another increasingly common sight in the Swedish capital: a "We don't accept cash" sign.

    "We wanted to minimise the risk of robberies and it's quicker with the customers when they pay by card," says Victoria Nilsson, who manages two of the bakery chain's 16 stores across the city.

    "It's been mainly positive reactions. We love to use our cards here in Stockholm."

    Across the country, cash is now used in less than 20% of transactions in stores - half the number five years ago, according to the Riksbank, Sweden's central bank.

    Coins and banknotes have been banned on buses for several years after unions raised concerns over drivers' safety.

    Even tourist attractions have started to gamble on taking plastic-only payments, including Stockholm's Pop House Hotel and The Abba Museum.

    The iconic band's Bjorn Ulvaeus is, in fact, one of the nation's most vocal supporters of Sweden's cash-free trend, after his son lost cash in an apartment burglary.

    Smaller retailers are jumping on the bandwagon, too, making use of home-grown technologies such as iZettle, the Swedish start-up behind Europe's first mobile credit card reader.

    Such portable technologies have enabled market traders - and even homeless people promoting charity magazines - to take card payments easily.

    "I took my kids to the funfair and there was a guy selling balloons and he had a card machine with him," remarks Senobar Johnsen, one of the Swedish customers back at the bakery.

    Currently living in Portsmouth in southern England, she's visiting Sweden for the first time in a year and says it's "visibly noticeable" that people are paying more with cards.

    "It's not like the UK where there's often a minimum spend when you go to a kiosk or you're in the middle of nowhere. I think it's great".

    Swish, a smartphone payment system, is another popular Swedish innovation used by more than half the country's 10 million strong population.

    "Swedes tend to trust banks, we trust institutions... people are not afraid of the sort-of 'Big Brother' issues or fraud connected to electronic payment."
    Just afraid of increasing levels of street crime. I wonder what's causing that?

    Rapidly approaching the point where good goys can get chipped and not have to worry about carrying their phones.

    the same tendency you see elsewhere in Scandinavia where we're rapidly converting to the cashless society, as shops and banks stop carrying cash and have started to institute measures that means cash received is no longer accessible. robbing the local 7/11 is no longer viable when you need some money quickly, this in turn means that the assorted criminal element have, or lack of alternatives moved onto targeting individuals with associated higher risks for all involved.

    taxi-drivers are one of a handful of professions that still readily handle cash in a manner that doesn't require a significant amount of tools and equipment to get to, to the extend that some cab companies, including the local one have started removing cash as a payment option entirely, meaning if you don't have a card to pay with, you get longer wait but then that's not a really a problem either, everybody including your guineapig can get a debit card these days, and we're encouraged to use them in a number of ways.

    if you'd spend more than 20 seconds thinking about the article you might even have worked it out on your own.
