Money is deeply intertwined with our culture, our relationships, and our choices. Money has been around in various forms since the foundations of human civilization, but the way we interact with it has been changing rapidly over the last decade. New technologies, analytics, and digital currencies are all evolving our relationship with money and pose many questions: What are some of the influences that are changing our interaction with money? Why is there a sudden focus of attention on digital currencies like Bitcoin? How will the way we experience money change in the future?
