As I see how the world goes in a few decades the main exchange unit will be bottles of clean mineral water, as the water quality goes down.

The only thing I can thing of which is "eatable" and long lasting (sealed) and have a high value in a small volume and weight is the saffron but there are almost no calories so it's out of the list.

I don't see any possible solutions with the food as we know it now. If they /the scientists/ make a new "powder" substance that can contain higher calories in a small volume,it can be a way to go but..

Soon we can print a stake on the regular 3d bioprinter so I guess you can print your own "eatable / grillable" money soon and be your own "bank".

I don't think this could ever be the case since we have already mass produced filters that allow anyone to drink clean water from any source. Water quality is preserved via filters which are already widely accessible.

Isn't it a problem if people eat money though, whole economy will get eaten, lol.  There might be a reason why coins are made out of metal, so people can't eat them.  Money is a rare useless item, that has agreed value, how much of it is out here is important (i think its important, i'm not good in economy)  I look at dry/dehydrated 25 year shelf life food more like gold or silver.  A ten dollar bag of rice is a lot of food, I've been eating it forever, if you have that in post apocalypse and need workers to produce some food or dig a well, you could pay with rice and dried bread, dried beans, etc.

This could possibly be the stupidest idea I have read this year  Shocked

Average woman needs 2000 calories a day.

2000 / 3 "notes" = 666 calories in something paper thin the size of a mobile phone.  Try squashing 1 1/2 chocolate bars down to that size and thickness.

one piece worth up to $5 so thats $15 a day or $60 a day for a family of 4, sure you can eat better for that than actually eating the notes




I like that crypto buddy!  Where can we buy those?  LOL

This idea has been around since prehistoric times - it's called barter.
