Under the law since January 1, 2019 all Russian POS will be such... I think that by the end of the year 50% or 60% of ATMs of Sberbank will be already equipped with it, and during 2019 already all. And need for plastic card per se will disappear" — Hasis has said.

"In Sweden this process (informatization of the banking sector — RNS) has begun in 1957, and there still is paper money. We at all at the beginning of a way. I think that cash will exist a decades more. (...) I assume that not the refusal of paper money, but refusal of the plastic card as from the carrier will be the following big step. When there is a smartphone, the card isn't necessary. Technologies will develop rather towards creation of other monetary carriers, than plastic and paper. And for us as for bank money is a record on the account" — she has told.
