Since there are example of Paypal and Mastercard banning customers for political reasons, cash has proven to be important again.

I am in Europe and I do give tips from time to time. Most cashless options don't give that opportunity. They don't even manage the basic use cases properly.

I also pay many services with cashless options, but I don't want to be dependent on one provider. At some point those will fail and many have shown that they cannot provide a universal payment solution.
