After Ukraine had left the USSR, they had this strange currency: coupons...

It was just a printed paper with an ink stamp on it, without any counterfeiting protection whatsoever...

Anybody with a scanner and a laser printer could print it...

For several years people could buy and sell products and services in exchange for that piece of paper...

 

That what you can call a believe system... lol

Sounds similar to what we have now, only now only a few have access to the magic counterfeit printing machine.

 

All depends on what you deem to be money. What we have now is not money as per the definition of money. All we have is a vehicle to exchange goods and services. Could be using eggshells instead - instead we use make believe digital money that doesn't even exist. People will still kill for it though.
