I had a thought last night about the utility of QR Codes, as a tool for Barter.
 
They can be printed and single use.
 
They can be emailed, or sent by text, and single use.
 
Now, the concept of single use currency may be a little controversial, and there is the challenge of the giver spending it before the receiver does, but there might be possibility for a Trust system that prevents this type of fraud.
 
The question to answer is about anonymous / digital / paper barter, and anonymous identity in a digital world.

Most of the points in the meme are already a reality, and the ones that are not yet absolute are very close.

Make me think of dissidents like Red Ice, Mark Collete who have been frozen out of banking and payment processors. Crypto seems like a good work around currently.

There are some problems with crypto, for a person that is frozen out of bank.. They can receive crypto, and send it.. but they need a bank to convert it to cash.
  
The unbanked should buy a decent safe, and convert their cash to silver, and their silver to cash.. and let their safe be the bank.. If they have a lot then they should have several safes..
  
Not necessarily ideal, but I have gone unbanked for a few years at a time, it does limit some buying and business opportunities, but it also relieves some forms of stress.
