Since the end of January last year the Bank of Portugal has destroyed €950 million in 500 euro banknotes.

This comes following the European Central Bank’s decision to put a gradual end to the circulation of that note and incinerate any.

Between 28 January 2019 and 15 September this year, 1,900,362 €500 banknotes that entered the vaults of the Bank of Portugal have quite literally gone up in smoke

IT IS A WAY TO IMPROVE THE CASHLESS ECONOMY OF PORTUGAL AND OTHERWISE, A WAY TO UNDERMINE ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY INTERNATIONAL ONES. MOST BUSINESSES ARE IN THE HANDS OF AFRICANS THAT HAVE DEPLETED FOREIGN RESERVES MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO SECURE FOREIGN CURRENCIES THEREBY RESOLVING TO BLACK MARKETS WHICH INVOLVES PHYICAL CASH AT ALL POINT. IT IS ACTUALLY A TWO WAY PRINCIPLE. CHINA AND UAE ARE THE ONES GAINING COS THEY DON'T CARE WHAT COMES IN SINCE MONEY IS A GREAT FACTOR IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITIES.
