Re: Bring it on.
Also in U.S., and I just checked a large bank that handles our small business. If cash deposits exceed some threshold per month they charge 0.30 per $100. They'll also charge a cash handling fee if the number of transactions in a month exceeds some other limit. I have no effin idea why they think this is ok, and agree-this is insane to charge me to DEPOSIT money they then lend out and receive interest on.
What came to my mind when I read this is the U.S. banks required to fill out Suspicious Activity Reports on any cash deposit of >= $10,000. How would this e-cash thing work then? How do you say this is going to be peer-to-peer but still observe txs like this? There are several businesses (i.e. pot stores) where I live that regularly make deposits like this.
