Cash for a Changing World: Scrip by New Deal Design

Published Sep 29, 2016

Created by New Deal Design, Scrip is a universal cash device, “like an ATM in your pocket” – you can easily load it with your spending cash from a smartphone, bank account, or ATM.

“Scrip is designed to deliberately turn off our financial autopilot. By pushing the right psychological buttons in our brains that physical cash triggers, Scrip subtlety helps us to understand each bill spent or received, bringing a visceral value back to an intangible number.

When paying for something, move your thumb over Scrip away from your body, the way you would when you’re counting out bills. Denominations physically ripple to the surface, adding tangibility, while mimicking the motion and palpable act of giving and receiving cash. The resulting interaction slows instantaneous transactions, hacking our brain to put onus back onto spending – the feeling of gaining or losing money – and reinserting the human experience back to digital cash. The resulting interaction slows down transaction time, adding thoughtfulness + consideration back into our spending. Because the feeling of gaining or losing money is actually present, Scrip reinserts the human experience back to digital cash.”
