The head of Sberbank German Gref believes the Bank card atavism, but do not expect their disappearance in the near future.

«I’m not a big fan of card, I use cards from hopelessness. Now basically already paying via Apple Pay. Dream about the moment when my cards would not be at all in the pocket, I think it’s a throwback,» said Gref during a straight line with the Bank’s employees.

«But when will cash disappear altogether, I don’t know, I’m afraid a long time will not disappear. When there are no cards at all, also don’t know,» he added.

Earlier, the head of Russia’s largest Bank has repeatedly said that the Bank is working on technology that will result in the death card, in particular, on the recognition of the customers by face and voice.
