This paper presents a comprehensive view of electronic cash and its role in our society. Its origins, development, implementation, and acceptance are discussed from business, technical, and economic points of view. Existing electronic cash systems operating in the business world are also presented along with its current issues and the new technological improvements and the potential future use of this technology in the market. Data from a case study performed with students from the UPR (University of Puerto Rico) is presented in which their attitude towards electronic cash was measured through a survey and the data analyzed using regression. The results suggest that electronic cash would be positively accepted among university students and that merchants needed to focus on incentive-based strategies.
