At some point the goverment will probably print paper script that expires monthly to avoid hoarding of cash outside of a bank.

Don’t give them any ideas — oops — too late
We don't have it monthly (yet) but I have had the clerk call the cops on me for using an old “small portrait” $100 bill. Before 1996, they didn't have a line or watermark so she assumed it was fake.
The cops came and basically grilled me about “what do you do” and “where did you get that bill”. Luckily someone else in the store recognized the old style or the idiots probably would have called the Secret Service.
Lesson: when a new bill style is introduced, rotate the old and replace with new.

That would lead to a barter system developing, people would stop taking money.
