In many European countries using cash is gradually going out of trend, however, Germany seems to lag behind in this aspect. Still, Deutsche Bank CEO John Cryan believes that Germans will soon stop using cash too, as it is becoming very expensive. Statistics show that only 1 in 20 payments are through credit cards and that every citizen of Germany keeps about 2000 euros at home.

Transitioning to cashless payments is going very slowly in Germany, however, the country is followed by two other EU countries - Spain and Italy.
