Decoding E-money

It’s in your gift cards and maybe even your transit pass. It’s starting to appear on your phone. How far is it going to go?

Come take a look a the recent past and near future of e-money in this dynamic new exhibition by the Bank of Canada Museum.

Decoding E-Money explores the voyage of your dollars from purchase to deposit through various traditional and e-payment systems.  Explore more that 60 artifacts covering the way Canadians have spent their money over the course of 200 years. From trading tokens to the most recent precursors of todays’ e-money, these artifacts at one time challenged our notions of acceptance much the way that Bitcoin challenges us today.

This exhibition consists of 6 distinct zones filled with interactive modules, text panels and showcases.


The exhibition also features several interactive modules :

  • Mining Bitcoin Game – (a three person game to learn more about mining)
  • Interactive time line
  • Small animated video on Bitcoin, the First Cryptocurrency (understand how users buy cryptocurrency, pay with it or earn it).
  • Payment Card System with interactive map and 4 screens where visitors can find more information on the different methods of payment
  • An interactive quiz
