Frederik, the Crown Prince of Denmark, visited the ERNIT team to talk about how to teach children the value of money. With four children under age 13 he too can relate to the struggle that digital money brings in a cashless society.
Every parent struggles with teaching their children about the value of money. It has been like that for ages, but never more so as today where money in its physical shape is disappearing and is being replaced by digital numbers. When the ERNIT team met Frederik, the Crown Prince of Denmark at the TechBBQ event in Copenhagen they talked about these challenges.
In Sweden less than 1 percent of all money transfers are made with cash and the rest of the Nordic countries have similar trends. All over the world cash is getting less and less relevant. The ERNIT team showed the Crown Prince the concept behind ERNIT and how the team is making digital money tangible by nurturing all the child’s senses – senses like hearing, seeing and touching. The meeting with the Crown Prince of Denmark was a brief one. But he got four ERNIT piggy banks, one for each of his children. Does that make ERNIT supplier to the Royal Danish Court?
