Description

The Danish government started paying people with pieces of paper in the 18th century. Private bigshots had been using messages instead of metal to do business for a long time before that. The Italians got paper from China and started writing paper IOUs to each other around the time of the Black Death. Governments came late to the practice. The convenience of paper over metal was undeniable for about three centuries and is now fading in favor of digital transfers.
